Survey by business journal “brand eins” ranks FEV Consulting as one of 2016’s best consulting firms

• For the 3rd time the “brand eins” business journal and the statistics portal “statista” have awarded the 2016 best consulting companies in Germany
• FEV Consulting receives best 2016 consultant award in 3 categories
• Study confirms trend: Clients prefer to work with specialized consultancies to gain extra depth

Who are the best consulting firms? This question was answered by the business journal “brand eins” and the statistics portal “statista” for the 3rd time in a special industry report “Consulting 4.0”. It is the largest survey of its kind in Germany. The survey aims to identify the best out of a total of 15,000 consultancies and is based on both peer recommendations and client assessments. The annual survey draws on answers provided by more than 7,000 individuals at the partner, board, CEO, and manager level.

FEV Consulting was recognized as the best consulting firm in three (3) categories: Automotive OEM & Supplier, Operations Management and Industrial goods. The ranking covers, in total, 13 industries and 18 fields of practice. The study confirms the existence of an ongoing trend in which clients preferentially hire smaller, specialized consultants with deeper industry know-how.

“We’re extremely proud to be included in this exclusive list of consulting firms,” said Alexander Nase, Managing Director. “The survey reflects our ongoing commitment to ensure that FEV Consulting delivers an exceptional client experience while also being a great place to work for our people. The combination of management consultant expertise with the deep technical know-how of more than 4,000 experts within the FEV Group is unique. It allows us to offer tailor-made solutions to highly complex challenges that our clients face.”

Prof. Stefan Pischinger, CEO and President of FEV Group Holding: “I am thrilled about this award. It is especially meaningful because it’s based on the responses of our clients and is a recognition of the high value-add and sustainability we are providing in our projects.”

The award coincides with FEV Consulting’s 5-year anniversary. Within this short period, the firm has conducted numerous and prestigious projects for many blue chip companies from the automotive, transportation and aerospace industry around the globe.
