Positioning and services[edit]

Estin & Co has an exclusive focus on strategy consulting,[3] as opposed to process re-engineering, IT, field organization or operational cost cutting, etc.[4] Its consultants devote all their time to strategy.[5]

About this positioning, Estin & Co explains that strategy consulting requires total specialization: “Estin & Co specializes in strategy consulting and does not offer any other services in order to avoid dilution of competence. The firm’s strategy is to grow internationally by keeping its focus on this activity at the potential expense of its size.” [6]


Estin & Co was founded in 1997 in France by Jean Estin, who had a previous career in consulting and as a senior executive. Before founding the company, he was president Europe of Mercer Management Consulting (today Oliver Wyman) and a member of the board of directors of The Mercer Consulting Group.

Estin & Co opened its first international office in Switzerland in 1998. The London office was opened in 2001 and the Shanghai office in 2004.
