The Lünendonk® List 2015 confirms: goetzpartners is one of the top ten biggest German advisory firms

For the second year in a row, goetzpartners occupies 10th position on the Lünendonk® List

Press release

Munich, 9 June 2015 - Deservedly among the best: goetzpartners, a leading consultancy for strategy, M&A and transformation, has once again been recognised for its success in the context of the Lünendonk List. For the second year in a row, the company is thus in the top ten consulting companies with a controlling interest in Germany.

“Apart from KPS Consulting, which almost doubled its workforce in 2014 thanks to a new acquisition, at goetzpartners we were able to increase the number of employees by 13.6% through the creation of new posts. This is the highest increase of any German management consultancy. This fact, and the fact that this is the second year in a row that we have been in the top 10 on the Lünendonk List, show that our strategy, M&A and transformation approach is successful”, explains Stefan Sanktjohanser, Managing Partner and co-founder of goetzpartners. “In sharp contrast to other advisory firms, which buy the areas they need for a particular job, we focus on organic growth. In the future, this will allow us to continue to position ourselves among the best companies in the industry.”

The Lünendonk List is a ranking published annually which compares and classifies German management consultancies. Since 1994 it has signalled, for example, the sales figures and sales development of approximately 15,000 management and company consultancies. It takes into consideration companies that have their headquarters and the majority of their primary and capital stock in Germany. Within Germany and also in neighbouring countries, the Lünendonk List is a recognised market barometer.

A press round table was held today to accompany the announcement of the Lünendonk List. Stefan Sanktjohanser, Managing Partner and co-founder of goetzpartners, as well as representatives of other listed consulting firms, discussed the results of the Lünendonk List 2015 and the initial results of the as-yet unpublished Lünendonk®-study 2015 „Management consultancy in Germany".
