After serving Kearney for 28 years, Markus Stricker has left the strategic operations consultancy to join Genioo as Head of its European Commercial operations. 

Established in 2012, Genioo is a Swiss-origin consulting firm that seeks to bring the best of both worlds: the quality of the top consulting firms, combined with the flexibility and cost effectiveness of independent consultants. Today, Genioo has a team of around 60 core consultants and professionals working from four offices in Europe and the US, and a network of over 1,000 vetted independents, most of which have a tier-one consultancy background. 

With the aim of expanding its footprint in its key areas of focus – centred around project management and implementation services at clients in life sciences, healthcare and private equity – Genioo has in recent weeks added two high-profile consultants. In the US, this saw former McKinsey & Company consultant John Paul Lee joins its North American ranks.

In Europe, Markus Stricker has been installed as Commercial Leader of its European offices in Zug and Frankfurt. He has been tasked with expanding the firm’s client base, moving into new geographies and markets, and bringing new offerings to its portfolio. 

Prior to joining Genioo, Stricker was Kearney’s Managing Director for Switzerland and Head of the firm’s Pharma & Healthcare practice in the DACH region. Prior to this, he worked for more than 15 years out of Brazil, as Lead Partner of Kearney’s Latin American Consumer Goods & Retail practice.

According to Frederic Brunner, the founder and chief executive officer of Genioo (ex-McKinsey), “Markus brings extensive experience in operations strategy and transformation and in helping clients in the healthcare and consumer goods industry to create competitive advantage in business turnarounds, post-merger integration and supporting greenfield innovation.”
