Porsche Consulting said Tuesday it has opened a new office in Belmont, California, adding that the most innovative IT and technology companies are their neighbors in Silicon Valley.
Detlev von Platen, Member of the Porsche AG Executive Board for Sales and Marketing, emphasized the significance of the new site for the company.
“We need more visionaries, more ‘out of the box’ thinking, especially if we want to drive innovations forward,” he noted. “And what better place to enact this necessary vision than the Silicon Valley? To have the consultants directly on-site offers the best conditions for this.”
Belmont is the ninth office that Porsche Consulting has opened since its inception in 1994. It is located next to Volkswagen’s Electronics Research Laboratory.
“Contact with colleagues from our own corporate group is just as valuable as with Silicon Valley’s many other expert and courageous individuals who are working with enormous energy and matchless spirit to shape the world of the future,” said Eberhard Weiblen, Chairman of the Executive Board of Porsche Consulting GmbH.
He expects the Belmont office to bring together the best ideas from a wide range of fields and give Porsche Consulting clients around the world direct access to major innovation networks. New mobility, high-performance enterprise, and business transformation are Porsche Consulting’s main areas of concentration.
Porsche Consulting GmbH is one of Germany’s top ten management consultancies, and employs more than 550 people worldwide. It is a subsidiary of the Stuttgart headquartered sports-car maker Porsche AG.
