"Hidden Champion" Awards
Winning the "Hidden Champion" award five times in a row confirms The Advisory House’s status as an outstanding consulting company. The goal of the "Hidden Champions" study is to introduce lesser-known consulting firms that are able to compete with the "champions" in the market – McKinsey, Boston Consulting Group and Bain - according to the study's definition and have more to offer than the industry giants in the opinion of top managers. The study has been carried out every two years since 2003 by "Wissenschaftliche Gesellschaft für Management und Beratung GmbH (WGMB)” under the direction of Prof. Dietmar Fink (FH Bonn Rhein-Sieg) together with the magazine Capital, making it the oldest seal of quality for consultants in the German-speaking region.
Since "Hidden Champions of Consultancy" have been awarded, one company has always been at the top of the "Energy Industry" category: The Advisory House. For the fifth time in a row, it is seen by clients in terms of perceived competence ahead of all the big names in the consulting market as well as other consulting firms focusing on the energy industry.
„When we founded The Advisory House our vision was to establish the company as a premium consultancy for the energy industry. We are proud and humbled that we have been able to fill this vision with life in such a sustainable way. Thanks to the commitment of our team we were not only able to win the award but despite the strong competition we successfully defended it for the fourth time in a row" says the partner and CEO of The Advisory House Franz Gologranc.
For Franz Gologranc, partner and CEO of The Advisory House, the renewed "Hidden Champion" award in the "Energy Industry" category is a credit to all The Advisory House employees: „Getting to the top is one thing, holding this position is another, much more challenging. Therefore we are delighted about the renewed confirmation from our clients that they appreciate our combination of professional expertise, innovative solutions and personal approach. I would therefore like to thank all of my colleagues who do their best every day to impress with their competence, quality and commitment.“
After 2012 and 2015, the "Hidden Champion of Consultancy" study also sees The Advisory House 2018 in the category "energy industry" ahead of the renowned top brands as well as other qualified consultancies specialising in the energy industry.
The Advisory House was confirmed for the second time as the "hidden champion" of energy consulting.
The Advisory House was named one of the "Hidden Champions 2012". In the "energy industry" category. The consulting firm prevailed over both the major consultancies and all the other qualified industry specialists and was ranked No. 1.
"We have followed the development and performance of The Advisory House in the past with great interest. Different market players independently recommended to take The Advisory House into consideration. Thus, we are glad that our empirical analysis confirms and emphasizes our market observation ", explains Prof. D. Fink.
