Recognized for Strategy, Brand Marketing, Digital Transformation, and Growth Specialties.


HONG KONG, May 24, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Forbes magazine has named Prophet one of America's Best Management Consulting Firms 2016. The list, which recognizes the top 1% of management consultancies, was inaugurated by Forbes this year.

"We're honored to be included on Forbes' list of the top management consulting firms," said Michael Dunn, Chairman and CEO of Prophet. "This recognition highlights our unique combination of insight, strategy, creativity and pragmatism that helps companies build more relevant brands and grow better businesses."

To determine the list, Forbes collaborated with Statista, an online statistics provider, to conduct two online surveys. The first surveyed partners and project managers from management consultancies, and the second went to clients who have worked with management consultancies in the last four years.

In addition to creating the full list of the top consultancies, Forbes evaluated 15 industries and 16 functional areas to determine the firms that excelled in these areas. Prophet earned a four star rating in the marketing, brand and pricing specialty. It was also recognized by its peers for its digital transformation expertise, and by clients for strategy and innovation, growth and new business models.

"Prophet helps clients solve their most pressing business challenges by delivering a full range of capabilities based on our core competencies: brand and customer experience, digital transformation and growth acceleration," said Dunn. "We are honored that our clients and peers have recognized our expertise in these areas. It is a true testament to our strong, multi-disciplinary team who deliver best-in-class work to our clients every day."

"We are delighted to have been recognized by clients and peers for our work as we continue to help brands and businesses grow better in Asia," said Jay Milliken, Senior Partner at Prophet in Hong Kong. "Our depth of experience in helping international brands become relevant in their chosen Asian markets, as well as helping local brands become relevant internationally, means that Prophet is the ideal consultancy for CMOs to partner with in this space."

To be considered for Forbes' list, companies had to fall into one of the following categories: "classic" management consultancy firms, IT consultancies, advisory branches of auditing firms, or consulting branches of agencies.
