Delaware Consulting opens offices in Hungary and Malaysia

Antwerp, 26 May 2015  – Services provider Delaware Consulting continues its worldwide expansion. Recently, two new offices have been officially opened in Budapest (Hungary) and Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia). With these local Delaware entities in Eastern Europe and the APAC region, the group is successfully implementing its brand-new 5-year strategic growth plan.

During the last few months, Delaware Consulting has been stringing together a number of milestones. Last February, the company officially surpassed the 1000-employee milestone. In Q4 of 2014, two new offices were opened in Manila and Paris. All of this underlines yet again Delaware Consulting’s intention to further expand its business across the globe.

Hung(a)ry for growth

The new practice in Budapest – Delaware Consulting Hungary Kft. – is a fully-owned subsidiary of Delaware Consulting International. Wim Van Eyken, Managing Director, and Adam Jezsoviczky, General Manager, will take the lead. Van Eyken: “One of the main reasons for us to start a local entity in Hungary is the presence of one of our main clients, AB Inbev. We will also attract new clients within the region as well.” The start-up of a new Delaware entity in Eastern Europe is perfectly in line with Delaware’s strategic growth plan for 2020.

APAC footprint

At the same time, Delaware Consulting is also expanding its existing activities in the APAC region. After opening an office in Manila (the Philippines) last December, a new office has now been opened in Kuala Lumpur, the capital of Malaysia. The new branch will operate in conjunction with the other APAC offices in Singapore and Manila.

Managing Director Christophe Derdeyn: “Our new office enables us to offer better, quicker and more competitive services to our existing and new clients within the region. In addition, our local presence strengthens our go-to-market with an increased focus on Malaysia.”
