Cordence Worldwide, a global consulting network with six member firms across Europe, has appointed a new global leader: Steve Haymon.

Haymon works for Cordence Worldwide’s largest member firm in headcount, North Highland, where he is a Vice President based in its Philadelphia office. The American has been with the management consultancy for over 16 years, leading projects for some of the firm’s largest clients in the private sector. His main focus is on organisations in the life sciences, communications, retail and manufacturing industries.

In his role as Managing Director of Cordence Worldwide, he leads a consulting network with more than 5,100 consultants in 25 countries across the Americas, Europe and Asia-Pacific. The network has a strong footprint in Europe, with members firms Alfa Consulting (Spain and Latin America), Bonfiglioli Consulting (Italy), Horváth & Partners (Germany and Central Europe), Oresys (France), TwynstraGudde (Netherlands) and Valcon (Nordics).

Outside of Europe, North Highland represents the network’s interest in the US and Canada, while Avalon Consulting (India), Genex Partners (Japan), Key To Way (South Korea), S.POINT (China) and State of Matter (Australia) provide coverage in Asia and Oceania.

The firm’s global footprint enables its member firms to team up to rival the the largest consulting firms in the industry, while maintaining their unique heritage and financial autonomy. “We have the ability to quickly and creatively assemble new ideas, real experience and the right resources to help clients capitalise on an opportunity – anywhere in the world,” said Haymon.

All member firms of Cordence Worldwide are privately-held consultancies that leverage the network to collaborate on business development, project delivery, professional development and thought leadership. A shared vision and approach to serving clients and a similar culture means that firms can “help one another thrive in their respective markets,” said Haymon.

According to Haymon, the network’s agile operating model, deep breadth and depth of service offerings and global footprint helps member firms better meet the changing demands in the consulting marketplace. “The way consultants bring expertise and deliver consulting services must change. Cordence Worldwide member firms are well positioned to meet these demands.”

Haymon succeeds Andrew Keene, a veteran in the consulting industry. He previously was a partner at Litmus (which merged with PPB Advisory in 2016 and was acquired by PwC two years later), Capgemini Invent and EY Consulting in Australia. “I am delighted to hand the role on to Steve Haymon. I am confident he will take the organisation to the next level,” said Keene.

According to, Cordence Worldwide is one of the globe’s top 20 consulting firms in terms of track record at clients.
