There is a clear orientation for the future: In 2025, cbs wants to achieve a quarter of a billion US dollars in sales with 1,000 consultants in international markets. Managing Director Rainer Wittwen: "We are already the leading consultant for end-to-end business process solutions in our core market. We want to further globalize our business and become the world leader by 2025. To achieve this, we need dedicated consultants who, as partners at eye level with the customer, conceive and design the future solutions that are critical to their success. As a development platform for highly qualified consultants, we want to be the best and most attractive employer in our market. cbs is growing continuously and strongly. And we have a lot to offer: Who wouldn't want to work for the most impressive industrial companies in the world?"

Spirit of optimism

For about a year and a half, the employees of the consulting firm had not met physically due to the pandemic - now the time had finally come. "We have felt a real sense of optimism and are taking a lot of tailwind with us for our strongly growing consulting business", says CEO and company founder Harald Sulovsky. At the two-day event, which was attended by colleagues from all 18 subsidiaries, the management presented the sharpened future agenda and the new brand identity. As a specialist for global and digital end-to-end business process solutions, cbs has been focusing on the champions of the international manufacturing industry for over 25 years.

"cbs is the consultant of the world market leaders and has deliberately adopted the high-performance culture of these top companies. Our customers appreciate that we think and act like them in these aspects - and are very ambitious", emphasizes Managing Director Sulovsky. Long-term strategic focus on a defined target market. Absolute customer orientation. High innovative strength, professional excellence, the ambition of a quality leader. These are the qualities that cbs associates with its customers. Added to this is a strong corporate culture that promotes entrepreneurial thinking, open communication and confidence in individual creative power. 

Hidden Champion

"This special cbs spirit could be felt again at the Corporate Summit. It is indeed a central factor for intact customer relationships and many project successes. In day-to-day business, colleagues support each other across departments and are constantly forming new knowledge networks. That's a huge plus, which ultimately translates into added value for the customer.", explains Benjamin Krischer, Consulting Director Landscape Transformation. 

"We have a clear focus on the manufacturing industry - this motivates all of us, because everyone wants to work for these well-known customers and develop innovative future solutions with them", adds Sebastian Hellmann, Consulting Director at cbs. "As a hidden champion, we can also score points on the applicant market."

Professor Hermann Simon, founder of the global market leader in price consulting, Simon Kucher and Partners, discovered the phenomenon of "hidden champions" for science and management theory and examined it more closely. As part of the cbs Summit, Simon, management thinker and member of the "Thinkers 50 Hall of Fame," gave an exclusive talk on what specifically makes these world market leaders tick: focusing narrowly on a product or a specific market, the will to be the best, a global presence and the ambition to grow steadily. "All of this applies precisely to cbs. We have been pursuing this strategy for many years - and deliberately so", confirms cbs Managing Director Rainer Wittwen.
