Long story short:

consultingheads was founded in 2016 as a spin-off of the case interview community Prep-Lounge, which specializes in preparing young graduates for entry into a top management consultancy.

Based on these contacts, consultingheads initially established itself as the leading community for young consulting talent in German-speaking countries.

The focus is now on the placement of experienced top consultants for freelance projects or permanent positions. Since 2021, consultingheads has been an independent company that continues to develop one of the most successful German management consultancies with a young, dynamic team.

Today, the focus is on the placement of experienced consultants in permanent positions and freelance projects. Most recently, consultingheads GmbH was spun off as a separate company in 2021 and sold to the current management. Based on the success of the last few years, one of the most successful management consultancies in Germany has since been further developed with a young, dynamic team.
