West Monroe Partners, a full-service North American business and technology consultancy, today announced it has opened new offices in Houston, Texas, and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, bringing its in-market locations across the United States to 12.
Founded in 2002, West Monroe Partners today has a team of more than 750 business consultants and deep technologists across the United States. The firm collaborates with clients to reimagine, build, and operate their businesses through technology, yielding a dramatic commercial impact on profitability and performance. Its uncommon blend of business savvy and deep technology expertise has produced distinctive capabilities for enabling growth and transformation through improvements to the customer experience, efficiencies across operations, informed mergers and acquisitions, and insights driven from advanced analytics.
“Establishing teams in Houston and Pittsburgh is a key step in our ongoing nationwide growth strategy, allowing us to broaden our reach into top business markets, position on-the-ground resources closer to our clients, and provide exciting new opportunities for top talent,” said Kevin McCarty, West Monroe Partners’ president and chief executive officer. “We are pleased to bring world-class business and technology capabilities to both markets and even more pleased to provide some of our emerging leaders with terrific entrepreneurial opportunities to lead and grow new offices.”
“Opening the Houston office allows us to begin building a presence in the fourth-largest US market and to extend some key relationships we already have with clients that operate in this area,” said Tom Hulsebosch, managing director and leader of West Monroe Partners’ Energy & Utilities practice. “While our initial focus will be on bringing to bear rich experience in mergers and acquisitions and in complex operational and technological transformation within the energy and utilities sector, Houston-area clients will have access to all of West Monroe’s broad industry and functional skills as needs require.”
“Pittsburgh is also a market that provides a strong fit with our intent to grow West Monroe’s nationally recognized Workforce Optimization capabilities, as well as our presence in the eastern part of the country,” added Jeff Arnold, Director of Workforce Optimization. “One of our key areas of focus in this market will be working with companies looking to optimize labor spend, build high-performing workforces and to accomplish the same or more with fewer resources.”
West Monroe Partners has enjoyed solid and sustained growth in both size and national scope over the past 14 years. Crain’s Chicago Business has recognized the firm among its Crain’s Fast Fifty, the 50 fastest-growing companies headquartered in the six-county Chicago metropolitan area, for the past six years. Additionally, West Monroe’s “people-first” culture and workplace practices have earned accolades nationally from Consulting® magazine and Great Place To Work as well as regionally in several key markets, including Chicago, Seattle, Minneapolis and New York.Contact information: Houston
