Singapore – Altman Solon, the largest global strategy consulting firm focused exclusively on the Telecommunications, Media, and Technology (TMT) sectors, has promoted TMT expert Dr. Ben Happel to Partner in the Singapore office.
“With over a decade of consulting experience in Southeast Asia, Ben launched our Singapore office in February 2021” said Altman Solon Managing Partner Patrick Bellenbaum. “Singapore is a regional hub for the financial community and the gateway to strategic clients in Southeast Asia. With Ben at the helm, we established a permanent footprint in Southeast Asia, bundled local and regional market expertise, and attracted local talent across all experience levels to serve our clients in this part of the world more effectively. We appreciate all his contributions so far and know there are many more to come in his new position of Partner.”
“The TMT industries in Southeast Asia are seeing unprecedented change,” said Happel. “The region boasts a thriving, innovative ecosystem of companies that serve some of the largest and fastest growing consumer markets in the world. Through the strong interest of our clients in the region we have been fortunate to grow our APAC team in our Singapore and Sydney offices to 60 professionals over the past 18 months, making Altman Solon already the largest TMT-exclusive strategy consulting firm in APAC. Key trends include infrastructure carve-outs amid changing regulatory frameworks, hyperscalers and cloud players looking for ‘edge’ solutions, a vibrant tech ecosystem, and strong and growing interest by international investors: All of this makes APAC one of the most complex – and exciting – regions globally.”
