Excellence Consulting was established in Milan in 2007 by Maurizio Primanni, current CEO, and Renato Ferri Pacini. The name immediately generates reflections. In a sector where companies persist holding with the name of founders who are no longer alive, (eg Arthur D. Little, AT Kearney, Bain & Company, Booz Allen & Hamilton, Ernst & Young, McKinsey & Company etc.), the two founders decide shifting the accent on value: Excellence.
A name, an omen, a bet: but also a guarantee, a challenge to self-nourish one’s fame. A commitment that has been maintained. From the two constituents to the origins, today the company counts almost 100 employees.
At the beginning the company focuses on consulting for Top Management in the banking, insurance and asset management sectors, then, later, with the aim of helping more and more Italian companies to establish their presence on the Italian and international markets, the founders decide to shift the focus also into other sectors: from industry, to consumer goods, to distribution. In parallel, over the years additional branches have been created to enrich the Excellence Group offer: Excellence Education (specialized in the training and management of corporate change processes, 2014), Excellence Innovation (for the effective use of digital technologies, 2014), Excellence Design Thinking (for the redesign of distribution formats, 2017), Excellence Real Estate & Hospitality (real estate development and requalification, 2018).
The offices are in Milan and Rome.
The Excellence group has also decided to have a presence on foreign strategic markets and opened a branch in China, where it is supporting a primary Italian banking group to penetrate into this high potential market. In the same way, it opened a subsiadiary in Switzerland (Lugano), with the double goal of supporting local national companies that seek to confront themselves with the foreign market and for those operating there.
