West Monroe Partners, a full-service North American business and technology consultancy, today announced that it has opened a new office in Minnesota. The office is West Monroe’s sixth office in the United States. The firm also has two offices in Canada. Tom Ewers, a director who has been with West Monroe Partners for 10 years, will lead the office.
Initially, the office will focus on merger and acquisition-related services for key local industries—particularly private equity, healthcare, and manufacturing and distribution—throughout Minnesota and the upper Midwest. In addition, it will coordinate a full range of business and technology services for national and international clients with operations in that region.
“Throughout our 10 years in business, we have been very deliberate in establishing and developing offices in markets that demonstrate steady growth potential, and that thoughtful approach has enabled us to be successful in expanding our coverage across North America. Our research and local networking has confirmed that this is a good time for us to devote dedicated resources in Minnesota,” said Kevin McCarty, West Monroe’s president and one of the consultancy’s founding members. “Tom Ewers’ track record for client service and practice development, along with his deep experience in the challenges and opportunities associated with mergers and acquisitions, make him an ideal candidate to develop this new office.”
Prior to opening the Minnesota office, Ewers worked in West Monroe Partners’ Seattle office from 2007 to 2012, with responsibility for expanding the Mergers & Acquisitions practice to the West Coast. He joined West Monroe Partners in 2002 in Chicago after holding positions with BearingPoint and Arthur Andersen.
“Local companies in the financial services, healthcare payer, high tech and food sectors, among others, are performing well and fueling local growth,” said Ewers. “These areas of focus fit well with our established industry strengths as a consultancy, as well as with our capability to provide both strategic and technology solutions.”
The new office is located at 7760 France Avenue South, 11th Floor, Minneapolis, MN 55435. The local telephone number is 612-594-8000.
West Monroe Partners also has offices in Chicago, Illinois; Seattle, Washington; New York City, New York; Columbus, Ohio; Dallas, Texas; Montreal, Quebec; and Toronto, Ontario. The firm serves its clients’ international interests through a global alliance with BearingPoint in Europe.
