I have repdar and it barely flickers with recognition. There are outfits like them the world over - somewhere behind the handful of partners who sell like its cash or armageddon there is probably a revolving door of cut-price contractors doing the heavy lifting. With the banks offshoring all the dull stuff this has probably worked well. But if nearshoring makes the comeback being predicted in some quarters in 2013, outfits like this will struggle.

consulting_guru to marsday (#2)

Hello,

As a consultant at Chappuis for almost a year now, I must disagree with the above reply. I come from another management consulting company and I like it much better within Chappuis Halder. I joined the NYC office, and I have to say that the general mindset is awesome and very dynamic. Many events are organized like seminar abroad / cool offsites and all the consultants get along very well. For once in a consulting firm, the management is way more focused on efficiency and results than on rewording the same sentence over and over for no reason. To talk a bit about the firm, the amount of employees has been increasing steadily in the recent months. We've been getting more and more mandates with various CIB, retail banks and insurance. Since the creation of the NY office over 2 years ago nobody has spent a single day on the bench. I would say one of the company's strength relies on its ability to mobilize resources very quickly to answer clients’ needs all over the world. CH has some very acute experts on specific topics such as ALM, risk modeling or even Finance transformation. Regarding near and offshoring assignments, it is one of the key subjects for banks lately and any management consulting firm is trying to sell this kind of project. The strength of a consulting company for me is the ability to identify new subjects and quickly become expert on it. On this note, CH has proved its ability to quickly become recognized by its clients in North America.

Cheers.

I wonder if it's actually named after any founders, or if it's just completely made up so as to give an air of a long-standing, traditional company established many moons ago.

Yes, like Haagen Dazs. If true that'd be the pinnacle of pomposity.

right.. because the name of a firm tells you if yes or no you should work for it... if you actually judge a firm based purely on its name and feel rational about it, you defenitely have a problem...

I don't know anything about Chappuis Halder & Cie but such comments by powernap or Bushy Eyebrow Partner do not bring much to this top-consultant blog forum.

I mean... if you judge any consulting firms by their sole names... what should anyone think about you guys with such nicknames...

Oh, and chappuis halder & cie is surely the only consulting firm with a compound name...

I will be also more interested to hear some real info about that firm than comments about the name, like the reputation they have with their clients for instance

MRS27 to mr0 (#1)

To clear the air here…The firm originated in Switzerland and in the past 3 years, has quickly quintupled in size, expanding across Asia and North America. Having come from a larger consulting group earlier, there is a clear difference in the quality of projects that Chappuis is able to sell and execute. Consultants at all levels have the opportunity to collaborate directly with senior and executive management for some of the industry's largest financial services firms – e.g. CEO, CFO, COO, CRO and so forth.

And yes, we are active in the near-shoring space, and anyone who has been in consulting is certainly aware of the need for greater efficiencies and cost reduction across all industries. However, Chappuis also specializes in many other offerings such as risk management, regulatory, business development and even digital services.

In terms of reputation, Chappuis is well recognized by its clients for the high quality of the projects and the efficiency in the deliveries. Such exposure is rare to come by these days and if you are someone looking for a challenge and global experience, then perhaps you’ve come to the right place.

I heard that it originated in a Swedish Sauna by some ex PA consulting partners who were annoyed with their previous employer.

So annoyed were they on leaving PA that they created this company "Chappuis Halder & Cie" and refer to their annoyance in the DNA of the company name.

If you are still following "& he ridicules PA chap" is an anagram of Chappuis Halder & Cie - I rest my case !

Did you not understand what they said? It wasn't the name as such they were judging, it's the idea of choosing such a name if there isn't a legitimate reason (founders) to do so, just to appear legit.

I think you were struggling to follow the whimsical conversation.
