Cylad Consulting has opened a new office in Geneva, adding a hub in French-speaking Switzerland to its existing presence in Zurich.
Founded in 2007, Cylad Consulting is a French management consulting firm specializing in strategy, business transformation and operational excellence in industrial sectors. The firm supports both large industrial companies and SMEs, particularly in the aerospace and defense, pharmaceutical, energy, electronics and transport sectors.
Active in Zurich for “many years”, Cylad Consulting has now chosen the city for its seventh office in the world. “This move is part of our international growth strategy,” said Sébastien Chaussoy, one of the firm’s two co-founders.
Meanwhile, for the Swiss team, the new hub is expanding its footprint to serve customers from all walks of life. “Our goal is to continue to build strong and lasting partnerships with our customers. We can now work in French alongside German and English, which allows us to develop our activities in all regions of the country,” said Bruno Glaus, partner in the new Zurich office.
Glaus added that Cylad Consulting anticipates growing demand for its services, particularly from industry segments that are experiencing rapid growth but also change.
Based on its classic management consulting model, Cylad Consulting can also rely on an on-demand interim management offer inherited from the acquisition in 2020 of the Swiss company Seestatt Consulting & Interim Management.
Cylad Consulting offices outside of Switzerland are in Paris and Toulouse in France, Hamburg in Germany, Adelaide in Australia and Montreal in Canada. Across its footprint, the consultancy has approximately 150 employees.
“This new office in Geneva is a major step for Cylad Consulting. It will allow us to extend our support to companies in the DACH region and to unite the players in the region’s strong industrial ecosystem”, explains Olivier Paget, partner at the firm’s Paris headquarters.
