BearingPoint adds 10 new Partners in Germany and Switzerland

02 July 2018 Authored by Consultancy.eu

International consulting firm BearingPoint has confirmed the appointment of 10 new Partners in Germany and Switzerland. Reinhard Geigenfeind, Yvonne Quint, Giso Hutschenreiter, Olaf Remmler, Marcel Tietjen, Christoph Steens, Thorsten Vogel and Frank Tiefenbeck make up the German contingent, while Marco Kundert and Pompeo D’Ingiandi have both achieved promotions in the firm’s Zurich office.

BearingPoint is an independent management and technology consultancy with European roots and a global reach. Officially launched as a brand in 2001, the company operates in three units: Consulting, Solutions and Ventures. The global consulting firm enjoyed a bumper year in 2017, with revenues up by 12% compared to the previous year to a record level of €710 million, and profitability up by 18% year over year. As the firm looks to kick on in 2018, the consultancy is also preparing for a period of change at the top, following the stepping down of long-standing Managing Partner Peter Mockler, and the succession of Kiumars Hamidian into his previous role. 

Now, the firm has announced further changes, with the release of a new roster of Partner promotions, as BearingPoint looks to reward the good work which has seen it thrive in recent years. The firm’s Partner count has been boosted by the elevation of 17 individuals in total, as 14 Partners have been internally promoted, while a further three have joined the consulting firm. These include, five in France, one each in the Netherlands and in the UK, and 10 in Germany and Switzerland. 

BearingPoint’s new Partners in the latter region are predominantly based in Germany. The firm’s offices in Düsseldorf, two in Hamburg, Munich and Berlin have each seen the addition of two new Partners, while the Swiss office in Zurich has seen its Partner count grow by two.

Speaking on the changes, Peter Mockler, who is remaining as BearingPoint’s Managing Partner in order to help Kiumars Hamidian with a smooth transition, said, “The admission of 17 new Partners is a testament to the ongoing success and growth of our business. Each of our new Partners has a strong track record in delivering projects to our clients. Each has displayed strong capabilities in creating client value and demonstrated commitment to excellence in service delivery. All of them are effective role models for our values and principles. I am also pleased that 29% of our new internally promoted Partners are female. This is an important step to achieving our 2020 target of having 20% female Partners.”
