UAE— Strategy and marketing consultants Simon-Kucher & Partners have opened an office in Dubai.

Simon-Kucher plans to staff the office with 20 consultants, including director Lovrenc Kessler who will run the division, which hopes to generate up to $10m in revenue annually.

Ekkehard Stadie (pictured), head of the firm’s global telecoms practice, said current economic conditions in the region are favourable for the company. “The UAE have left the real estate and financial crisis far behind them,” Stadie said.
