About Vivaldi

 

Vivaldi is a global business and brand transformation firm single-mindedly focused on keeping their clients ahead of the game.

The firm uncovers opportunities at the intersection of strategy, brand, technology, and design, but doesn’t stop there. Vivaldi goes beyond consulting to make strategy actionable — the most important factor in leading clients to success.

Vivaldi offers genuine alternatives to traditional consulting firms and behemoth agency networks by combining the rigor of management consulting, the creative spark of design thinking and the edge of in-market performance optimization. Over the years, the firm has completed hundreds of brand strategy assignments across the world and is recognized for developing many of the principles of brand growth along the way. It applies its methodologies and expertise to brand, innovation, UX, and organizational challenges. Some of the firm's clients include American Express, Samsung, PepsiCo, Jägermeister, Swarovski, Telefonica, Schindler, Procter & Gamble, LEGO, and BMW.

Vivaldi’s top minds regularly publish their thoughts on the branding and marketing industries, penning books and articles on consumer insight, brand strategy, and marketing. One of the firm’s most prolific writers is founder and CEO Erich Joachimsthaler, who has published articles in the Journal of Marketing Research, Journal of Marketing, the Sloan Management Review, and the Harvard Business Review. His experience and thought leadership have informed his new book, “The Interaction Field,” which describes the emergence of a new business model of the same name. In his book, he presents “a thrilling new way of looking at a successful business model for the future,” predicting that successful companies will shift from transactional business models to an interactional model. This new model goes further than solely extracting value for the benefit of investors or shareholders, it creates value for all participants engaged in the Interaction Field, as well as society at large.

With a diverse set of experts and decades of experience, the firm has helped some of the most ambitious and revered companies build strong brands, drive new business models, and develop new markets—changing industry and category dynamics. Vivaldi is poised to write the next chapter on the future of business and brands, bringing emphasis to how shifts in consumer behavior and ever-evolving technology create new opportunities for growth.
