Management Consultancy opens official Beijing branch office

Porsche Consulting China invests in expansion of local presence.

Stuttgart. Porsche Consulting has upgraded its presence in Beijing to a branch office recently in a move to deepen its penetration in the local market. The management consultancy is taking up residence in the new, internationally-oriented Universal Creative Park in the Chinese capital. The upgrade marks an important step towards strengthening its collaborative efforts with subsidiaries of the Volkswagen Group and expanding its reach throughout China. Porsche Consulting Global CEO, Eberhard Weiblen, said: “Beijing is a magnet for talent and prospering business alike. We are happy to be a part of this vibrant and innovative place, and we look forward to intensifying our cooperation with clients from the north of China.”

Jiawei Zhao, Managing Director of Porsche Consulting China, said: “The establishment of the Beijing branch is another milestone for Porsche Consulting China. We have achieved significant growth over the past eight years, due both to the favorable domestic development environment and the tireless efforts of our professional team. Moving forward, we are optimistic about the China market and have plans to establish a presence in the South, with the ultimate goal of becoming the benchmark for management consultancy in China by 2025.”

Porsche Consulting established its first presence in Beijing in 2020. The subsidiary of sports car manufacturer Porsche opened its first China office in Shanghai in 2013. Leveraging its deep understanding of the global automotive market as well as Volkswagen business, the company has quickly established a strong foothold in the Chinese automotive consultancy market.

Over these past eight years, China’s automotive market has undergone profound changes. The COVID pandemic and changes caused by CASE (Connectivity, Autonomous, Sharing/Subscription and Electrification) have placed immense cost pressure on the industry, keeping the players busy and calling for quick solutions. With its deep expertise in cutting-edge solutions and pragmatic implementation approach, Porsche Consulting has successfully helped clients tackle some of their toughest management issues and expanded its footprint to serve top clients beyond the Volkswagen Group and the automotive industry, forming trusted partnerships with leading brands.

Looking ahead, the upgraded Beijing office will tailor its professional services to the evolving needs of customers. On the one hand, the office will continue to focus on providing advisory services in terms of strategy, organization, products, operations, marketing and sales to clients across industries in China. In addition, it will provide strategic consulting services for industries overall throughout their lifecycle.

Porsche Consulting is one of the leading top management consultancies in Germany, providing services to automotive, aerospace, manufacturing, construction, consumer goods, retail and financial service companies around the world. As almost all industries are experiencing rapid growth in China, local firms seek to increase competitiveness to seize both domestic and global opportunities. Since entering the Chinese market, Porsche Consulting has provided services to more than 50 multinational and local companies and is quickly becoming one of the fastest-growing operational management and automotive consulting firms in the region. In smart mobility, industry 4.0, digital transformation and other leading-edge topics high on management agendas, the company has also accumulated rich theoretical and practical experience.
