EAC – International Consulting Expands Global Presence with New Office Launch in New York

The opening of EAC International Consulting's New York City office, following its presence in Munich, Shanghai, Mumbai, and Kuala Lumpur, underscores the firm's dedication to providing specialized, in-depth consulting services tailored to the dynamic needs of businesses navigating the complexities of the U.S. and North American markets. This expansion not only amplifies EAC's capabilities in delivering strategic insights on USMCA-related incentives and clean energy initiatives but also reinforces its role in guiding companies through the intricacies of establishing and enhancing robust, globally integrated business operations.


In an insightful articulation of the strategic motivations behind EAC – International Consulting's expansion into New York City in 2023, Dietmar Kusch, the founder and partner of the firm, emphasized that the decision was driven primarily by the evolving needs of their clients and the shifting dynamics of a new, multipolar world order. Kusch highlighted the extremely favorable business environment in the United States, particularly within the USMCA trade region, as a critical factor that aligns seamlessly with the operational strategies of international companies. He pointed out that federal incentives such as the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) and the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA) offer compelling opportunities for growth and are pivotal in creating a conducive momentum for EAC’s clientele to flourish. By establishing a significant presence in this region, EAC aims to facilitate the diversification of its clients' revenue streams and production sources, effectively minimizing regional dependencies and fostering a more resilient global business model.

The country’s provision of affordable and reliably sourced energy is a key factor for enhancing operational efficiency and cost-effective investments. Additionally, the given predictability regarding environmental policies offers a secure foundation for clients seeking sustained success. The region’s increasing commitment to renewable energy aligns harmoniously with companies’ increasing emphasis on sustainability. The establishment of EAC's U.S. office taps into years of expertise offering clients the work of specialized professionals with local market knowledge, global training, and language proficiency in the most important growth markets across the globe.

With Roland Bopp, a seasoned executive with a distinguished track record as the former CEO of Deutsche Telekom and Mannesmann AG in the Americas, alongside Anna Ahlborn, Partner in Germany known for her strategic expertise, at the helm of EAC’s U.S. operations, the consultancy is well-positioned to make a significant impact in the North American market. Their combined experience and leadership are expected to drive EAC's strategic objectives forward, leveraging Bopp's deep understanding of the telecommunications and technology sectors, as well as Ahlborn's insights into European business strategies and operations. This leadership duo brings a wealth of knowledge and comprehensive network of contacts across industries, setting the stage for EAC to enhance its service offerings, expand its client base, and successfully navigate the complexities of the U.S. business landscape. Their guidance is pivotal in aligning EAC's USMCA market operations with the global standards of excellence and innovation that the consultancy is known for, ensuring that clients receive top-tier, localized support in their ventures within the North American market and beyond.
