Pauwels Consulting is doing well. The company will soon hire its 300th team member and it recently opened a new office in Switzerland. We asked Bert Pauwels, Founder and Managing Director of Pauwels Consulting, for a quick response.

Bert, on a scale of 1 to 200 kilometres per hour, how fast is Pauwels Consulting moving these days?

(laughter) Fast enough to be blinded by the speed but careful enough to stay on track. We are moving fast in a controlled way. We are happy with the way things are going.

“We will never focus on our growth.”
The growth of Pauwels Consulting seems unstoppable. Is growth a primary focus?

No. And it never will be. I have said it many times before and I will continue saying that “it is not our goal to become the largest consulting company; it is our goal to provide the best possible service to our clients.”

We don’t measure our success by our size but by the satisfaction of our partners. If we continue to help our partners well, our growth will follow automatically.

Pauwels Consulting recently opened a new office in Switzerland. Can you tell us more about that?
