Hamburg, 18.06.2021: Consulting firms AWK Group & Ginkgo Management Consulting announce their next merger: Quint Group, with its offices in the Netherlands and Spain, and Asia, joins the Group with its more than 500 digital transformation consultants. Clients gain access to expanded consulting services as well as to broad expertise in digital transformation. In this constellation, the Group will achieve a consolidated revenue target of EUR 175 million in 2021.

On a consolidated basis, the group is aiming for sales of around EUR 175 million this year.

As Oliver Vaterlaus, Group CEO, explains: “We share the vision of creating a ‘Great Place to Grow.’ We want to create a leading international management and technology consulting group that is now even more attractive as a partner for our clients and as an employer for talents.”
