Booz & Company is the oldest continually existing management consultancy in the world and we founded the whole profession when we were the first to use the term “management consultant.”
In 1914, our founder, Edwin Booz, began conducting business research and solving problems for clients near his native Chicago. For nearly a century, we have helped our clients realize the essential advantage needed to survive, thrive, and win. In 2008, we separated our operations from the U.S. Government consulting business. That company retained the name Booz Allen Hamilton. As an independent firm, we continue our work with businesses, governments, and organizations around the world, now under the name Booz & Company.
In 2009, the firm combined with U.S.-based management consultancy Katzenbach Partners, a leader in the domain of organizational performance.
We have been involved in some of the most celebrated business episodes of their day. The dawn of the contract system for Hollywood movies, the merger of the National and American football leagues, the rescue of the Chrysler corporation from bankruptcy, and the creation of Deutsche Telekom from government agencies that had grown up on both sides of the Iron Curtain all involved Booz assignments.
