Get Growing: West Monroe Partners eyes 500% growth for New York office by 2025

Chicago-based West Monroe Partners has aggressive growth plans for its New York Office, which is currently at 125 employees but will be about 750 by the end of 2025, says Gil Mermelstein, a Senior Managing Director and a member of the firm’s Executive Committee and Board of Directors and New York office lead. “As an epicenter for business, New York City is home to hundreds of enterprises that are staples in the U.S. economy, but most face issues of industry disruption, digital transformation, and talent management,” Mermelstein says. To prepare for the hyper growth, the firm just signed a ten-year lease at Worldwide Plaza at 825 Eighth Avenue in Manhattan. Mermelstein sat down with Consulting to discuss the firm’s planned growth.
