London office will serve as a gateway for the firm’s strategic growth plans and expansion in Europe
LONDON & NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Innovation consultancy Fahrenheit 212 today announced that it will open an office in London to support the firm’s strategic growth plans and allow the company to serve its current client base with multinational operations, as well as develop new business in the region. Fahrenheit 212 has appointed Rony Zibara to lead the firm’s London operations.
“Opening an office in London is a natural progression in our company’s growth and a strategic move for us in a market where there is significant opportunity,” said Pete Maulik, co-managing partner, Fahrenheit 212. “Rony was a natural choice to lead our operations out of London and we have full confidence that he will take our business to the next level for clients in the U.K., Europe and the Middle East.”
Fahrenheit 212 has experienced rapid growth and become a dynamic leader in the field of innovation consulting, working with Fortune 500 companies across the globe, including Best Buy, Campbell’s, Citibank, Hershey, PepsiCo, Nestlé and Samsung Electronics. Fahrenheit also works with private equity firms to develop growth solutions across their portfolios.
As partner and managing director of the London office, Zibara will direct all of the firm’s operations across the U.K., Europe and the Middle East and lead new business development efforts in the region. With more than 20 years of experience in the innovation space and its intersection with branding, Zibara will build relationships with companies that are looking for an innovation partner to help drive top-line growth and bring new products, services and businesses to market at an accelerated speed.
“The timing is right to expand Fahrenheit 212’s presence and bring a solution that’s been missing in our market – a consulting firm focused more on outcomes than simply brilliant ideas, and operating a pay-for-performance model that makes those outcomes as important to the firm’s success as they are to the success of its clients,” said Zibara.
Zibara was one of the original partners, and served as practice lead for idea development. Zibara has served as director of innovation for Fahrenheit since 2006, and is responsible for leading a team of innovation consultants that create market-changing ideas and innovations for the company’s clients. He is an expert on consumer behavior and the market forces and social movements that influence provocative new products, services and experiences.
Fahrenheit’s London office will be located in Clerkenwell.
