The values ​​of our consulting firm

Excellence, Independence and Impact

Ares & Co's Partners are entrepreneurs at heart and have developed the firm based on three fundamental values: Excellence, Independence and Impact.

  • On the Customer side, this means offering impactful recommendations, the unfailing commitment of our teams and high-quality contributions.
  • On the Consultant side, it offer the assurance of progressing in a firm with a unique culture and which values trust, integrity, initiative and the expression of one's convictions, not to mention good humour.


Our profession is a demanding art whose impact can have considerable consequences for our Clients

Excellence is the guiding principle of Ares & Co, from the recruitment of consultants to the recommendations we make to our clients. We pay particular attention to our teams, their spirit of independence, their ethics, their capacity for innovation and their high level of commitment, as well as all the other factors determining the quality of our services and the development of our unique position.

Attaching importance to the Excellence of our consultants’ profiles, both in terms of their skills and their human qualities, means guaranteeing our clients the value and quality of our deliverables and the Impact of our recommendations.

It also guarantees a certain quality of life within our offices and a strong and responsible commitment by everyone to maintain a caring internal culture, for the benefit of the team as a whole.



Engaging with Leaders to support them in making sometimes difficult decisions can only be done where there is complete trust

Leaders expect their Consultants to take an objective approach, free from third-party influences and pressures.

Independence and Integrity are fundamental to our value system, both towards our clients and towards all Ares & Co employees.

For us, this Independence translates into strong and committed convictions and transparency in our intentions, actions and results.
We share our knowledge and skills and serve our Clients exclusively in their interests.

Finally, in order to protect the interests of all our Clients, we undertake not to disclose any information concerning the assignments carried out or the strategic and operational issues addressed.
We treat this confidentiality as a mark of trust.


From the commitment of our Teams to the strong impact of our recommendations

The word Impact has a special meaning for us because it covers four combinable factors that each highlight our added value: Size, Complexity, Level of intervention and Innovation.

  • Size refers to the scope of business concerned, the financial and human assets affected by our actions and the number of consultants involved.
  • Complexity characterises the problem posed by the client, the scale and technical nature of which will determine the level of expertise and problem-solving capacity required.
  • Level of intervention simply determines the nature of the relationships to be established with the client’s representatives: Board of directors, officers, executives, operational staff.
  • Innovation is a major spearhead for our clients’ growth. In our profession, which is often characterised by the rapid replication of good ideas, the ability to innovate is becoming an increasing source of competitive advantage for our clients.
