McKinsey & Company, a global consulting firm, announced that it would be expanding its operations based in Costa Rica by moving into a new building to support its expanding number of full-time employees.
According to a recent statement by the Ministerio de Comercio Exterior, McKinsey started its Costa Rica operation back in 2010 with a core team that has eventually grown to 700 employees. The plan is to double that number when the company moves into a new building and also expand its local operations beginning in early 2018.
The consulting firm is based in Ultrapark II in Lagunilla, Heredia. The move garnered enough attention that Costa Rican President Luis Guillermo Solís gave his own personal praise for the company’s plans to expand. Solís also made a visit to the company’s facilities to meet with local managers and employees of the company.
“McKinsey is making substantial investments in Costa Rica because of the wealth of the country’s talent market,” a follow-up statement by Casa Presidencial said. “Costa Ricans contribute to the development of these sophisticated and progressive skills and enrich their own careers.”
For his part Andrés Cadena, a senior partner with McKinsey, said that “the dedication and talent of Costa Ricans is what makes our center a success for our clients and we hope to continue recruiting and developing new employees and creating attractive careers for our employees.”
McKinsey has consultancies located in 110 locations and more than 62 countries, the foreign trade ministry said. It spans across all industries and functions and provides strategists, marketing staff and experts to its client customers.
