Qvest strengthens its worldwide brand presence
- 19 September, 2022
USA/GER: The Qvest Group is expanding its global brand awareness by bringing its U.S. subsidiary OnPrem Solution Partners under the common brand Qvest. In doing so, Qvest forms one of the largest consulting firms focused on media & entertainment in the world. By harmonizing practices and services across all Qvest companies, worldwide customers will benefit from comprehensive consulting and implementation expertise.
With its global approach, the rebranding of the North American subsidiary marks a major milestone for Qvest on the way to harmonize its offerings in all global markets: for all its customers and partners, Qvest is now visible and approachable on four continents. Under the newly established Qvest brand in North America, the company will expand customer relationships in this continuously growing market. At the same time, Qvest can from now on approach existing and new customers with the full range of Qvest Group offerings. The experienced management team with Frank Leal, Candice Lu, Christophe Ponsart, Jon Christian, and Vanessa Fiola will continue to take responsibility for the ongoing development of the North American team at Qvest.US, LLC, in the future.
Peter Nöthen, CEO of the Qvest Group: “Our overarching strategic goal in the next years is the global expansion of the Qvest Group’s practices and the consolidation of our companies under one brand name. That is why this rebranding of our successful subsidiary in North America means an important milestone for Qvest. Not only will our customers and partners work with one global brand, but they will also benefit from the holistic portfolio of all our products and solutions. Therefore, I strongly believe that this step will have a very positive impact on the further development and international perception of the Qvest Group as a whole.”
After Qvest acquired a majority stake in OnPrem in December 2020, the North American subsidiary has achieved consistently stable growth and established itself as a strong partner beyond the media & entertainment sector, also in thematically related customer markets. The team is consulting clients with in-depth expertise in the areas of data analytics, Digital Media Supply Chain, IP & Rights Management, customer experience, Salesforce, content & cybersecurity, as well as broadcast transformation. The Qvest team in the USA consists of more than 300 experts located in three offices across the country in Los Angeles, Austin, and New York City.
Jon Christian, Executive Vice President at Qvest.US, LLC: “We are excited about what our combined offerings bring to our customers. By combining Qvest’s expertise, we formed an organization that can handle the most complex digital transformation requirements on a global level. The combined Qvest entity brings top notch talent, proven methodology across the entire project lifecycle from strategy through implementation, and deep subject matter expertise in both industry and domain to enable our clients to drive transformative initiatives that protect their market share and win the future.”
Within Qvest, the combined facilities now unite fundamental services that build and connect physical and digital infrastructures and offer a broad portfolio of individual end-to-end solutions along the digital media supply chain. The Qvest expertise in ICT and systems integration will also be available in North America for technology projects. Moreover, the US-based Innovation Development Center in Austin, Texas, continues to provide software development and engineering solutions.
