“Booz & Company’s Second Coming”
In an exclusive interview in the June 5, 2009 issue of The Economic Times, Booz & Company CEO Shumeet Banerji said the firm’s recent re-entry into India was “a major priority,” triggered by a “long-term strategy (that) is not driven by short-term” (circumstances). “We think helping Indian companies become genuine global players is part of the mission of the firm,” Banerji added. “So in the short term, things go up and things go down but the firm’s been around for 95 years… The timing is driven as much by our strategy choices, and these issues look a little bit different around a recession but we are in good health and we are not too worried about the timing.”
