About Simon-Kucher & Partners

Simon-Kucher & Partners is a global management consulting firm with 930 employees in 33 offices worldwide. The focus is on strategy, marketing, pricing, and sales. Founded in 1985, Simon-Kucher & Partners has more than 30 years of experience and is regarded as the world’s leading pricing advisor.

Consultants at Simon-Kucher & Partners consider themselves as true profit experts and help their clients to sustainably boost their profits. Their projects typically achieve a profitability improvement of 100 to 500 basis points. With the TopLine Power® approach, Simon-Kucher focuses on improving the top line instead of cutting costs. In recent years, many companies have achieved considerable improvements on the cost side, and have now taken cost cutting as far as it can go. Not so with the top line, where there is still enormous potential.

Typical areas and topics are:

  • Strategy (growth and competition strategies, new business models, product and market entry strategies, etc.)

  • Marketing (marketing strategies and efficiency programs, meaningful segmentation, organization and operations, loyalty marketing, etc.)

  • Pricing (avoiding price wars, innovation pricing, effective price execution, discount systems, global pricing, etc.)

  • Sales (sales force effectiveness, channel management, sales organization/strategy, key account management, etc.)

  • Holistic TopLine Power® programs (change management, organization of commercial functions, KPIs, etc.)
