Karistem in five key dates


New Organisation
The definition of the Karistem brand by service category allows us to clarify the new offering of the consultancy: the strategic consulting service with Karistem Corporate Consulting and the solutions of the operational experts with Karistem Corporate Expertise.


Buying up Factea Consulting
Karistem sees its first major external growth operation, with the buying up of the Factea network of sourcing consulting firms, in partnership with LGM. This acquisition reflects the maturity of the growth of the consultancy, now positioned in most sector activities to accompany both the general management as well as the executive functional management in their transformation plans and their strategic and operational projects.


First thematic study
Privileged witness and actor of large transformation projects in companies, Karistem launched a first study in France on the ROI of sustainable development, in partnership with ESSEC. Through such surveys and benchmarks, Karistem has shown its determination to be a beacon firm in the world of consulting.


Refocusing its activity
On the consultancy market where a myriad of generalists consultancies exist, Karistem decided to specialise in strategic consultancy. In the same way, three sectors are addressed in priority: energy, defence and infrastructure. This refocusing of activities allows Karistem to capitalise on its know-how, before focusing on other consulting subjects, other functions of the business and other sectors of activity.


Creation of the firm
Several experienced managers from the largest consulting firms decided to break away and consolidate their experience to create Karistem. Most of them are always present and form today the management team of the firm.
