Heredia, February 2, 2018. The global consulting firm McKinsey & Company inaugurated a new state-of-the-art facility located in Lagunilla, Heredia, Costa Rica. The inauguration featured a ribbon-cutting ceremony attended by Firm’s Global Managing Partner Mr. Dominic Barton, the President of CINDE, Mr. Luis Gamboa and Mr. Alexander Mora, Minister of Foreign trade, along with local McKinsey colleagues.

McKinsey started operations in Costa Rica in 2010 with a small team and has grown to more than 900 colleagues. Currently there are multiple global teams in the McKinsey Costa Rica center, such as Executive Assistants, Visual Graphics & Media, Technology & Digital, Research Analytics and New Ventures. 

Alexander Mora, Minister of Foreign Trade, highlighted the importance of this milestone, "McKinsey & Company is one of the most renowned consulting companies due to its global coverage of theme areas of work, the quality of its expert teams, , and for their impressive ability to create knowledge and deliver value to its clients in the private and public sectors, said Mora.  “McKinsey's business model includes the creation of very complex and sophisticated analytic tools; many of them designed, elaborated, and supported from Costa Rica. The inauguration of this new site will allow McKinsey to grow their headcount in almost 30% over a few years, consolidating their Costa Rica site as one of their biggest offices in the world. The Costa Rican government continues to support McKinsey & Company and all the support-service industry companies operating from the country."

Dominic Barton, McKinsey’s Global Managing Partner, remarked, "This is a very exciting time for the Firm as we inaugurate the new building for our Costa Rica office – one of our major offices globally. This is a result of the importance this office has for our global Firm, and for our local and global clients  as well as a symbol of our belief in its future potential. We look forward to continuing to invest in the talent and capabilities of our Costa Rican colleagues."

Luis Gamboa, President of CINDE, added “The investment McKinsey&Company is making in Costa Rica reflects the dynamic environment service sector companies are able to achieve thanks to the quality of the human talent available here. At the closure of 2017, CINDE confirmed 22 investment projects and the generation of almost 5.900 net jobs in the service sector”
