In January 2019, Coeus Consulting launched its first international office in Germany. Fast forward twenty-four months, and the share of its European operations has grown to over one third of total revenues. 

Founded in 2012, Coeus Consulting is an award-winning UK consulting firm specialised in IT advisory, business transformation, operating model design, procurement and the delivery of technology transformation.

As part of its international ambitions, early 2019 the consulting firm opened its first European office in Düsseldorf, a decision brought forward by a couple of years due to Brexit. Graeme Trevayne, a seasoned consultant with a track record across Europe, was hired to lead the local venture.

In 2020, despite the challenges brought about by the Covid-19 pandemic and its economic repercussions, Coeus Consulting managed to onboard two flagship household names as new customers, and secure “several significant extensions to existing European contracts”, according to Trevayne. 

In Germany, the consulting firm advises customers spanning the energy, manufacturing, and consumer goods sectors. Its service portfolio mirrors its UK portfolio, and when additional expertise is needed, experts from its 50-strong London office are called upon to complement local offerings. 

As the firm enters 2021, the revenue share of the Düsseldorf office has grown to 35% of the group’s total turnover. Trevayne: “It has been a great time to join the company. The German office provides us with the best of both worlds. Although Coeus Consulting is still relatively small in Germany, there is a tremendously supportive atmosphere due to being part of a larger firm with access to a significant resource pool of established talent.”

Looking ahead, the firm has set the ambition to grow its German office by 40% this year. James Cockroft, Director of Coeus Consulting: “We have exciting plans for 2021 and we expect to double our local European workforce this year. The focus is serving our local clients with culturally and linguistically-aligned consultants, but with the capabilities and style of consulting that has made us so attractive to our clients.”

“Growth will be supported by external recruitment of the right candidates as well as in-house development and promotions at Coeus Consulting,” added Trevayne.
