Global Management Consultancy A.T. Kearney Plans to Expand Operations in Indonesia


OCTOBER 13, 2016

Jakarta. Global management consulting firm A.T. Kearney plans to expand its operations in Indonesia to tap increasing interest by local and international companies to invest in Southeast Asia's biggest economy, a top executive said in a statement.

The company just celebrated the 90th anniversary and a 25-year presence in Indonesia with its clients, alumni and staff during a reception in Jakarta.

"I am pleased to celebrate these important milestones in Indonesia today," A.T. Kearney chairman and global managing partner Johan Aurik said during the event on Wednesday (12/10). "And we look forward to many more years ahead of building friendship and deep business ties with the Indonesian business community and with the government."

A.T. Kearney, which has a presence in more than 40 countries, was founded by Andrew Thomas Kearney in Chicago, Illinois, in 1926.

"Our 25 years in Indonesia have been full of opportunities to work alongside important companies and help them grow. It has been satisfying to watch these companies succeed," A.T. Kearney Indonesia president director John Kurtz said.

Indonesia's Investment Coordinating Board (BKPM) said earlier that it aims to boost foreign and local investment to Rp 594.8 trillion ($46 billion), 9 percent more than in the previous year.

At the end of the second quarter, total foreign and local investment amounted to Rp 298.1 trillion, 14.8 percent more than in the corresponding period last year.
