Mars & Co

Mars & Co. is an international strategy consulting firm that's all about exclusivity.  The firm's “raison d'être,” it says, is to pour all of its resources into a limited number of clients and to serve them, worldwide, on an exclusive basis.  Its founder and chairman, Dominique G. Mars, says this makes the firm "the only consulting firm of any consequence to guarantee 'fidelity'" to its clients.  A bold assertion, indeed.

The stay-small-but-true firm employs approximately 250 consultants who work in six offices in Connecticut, California, London, Paris, Tokyo and Shanghai, although the firm operates under a "one-office" concept.  That means a client in San Francisco has as much right to draw on the Paris office's resources as a French client does.  Chairman Mars, who founded the firm in 1979 after leaving BCG, says he would ultimately like to employ 400 to 450 consultants with a portfolio of 30 to 40 clients.
