22 August 2018 4 min. read

The Boston Consulting Group has promoted three of its senior consultants in France – Charles-Antoine Wallaert, Johanna Benesty and Vinciane Beauchene – to the rank of Managing Director, which is BCG’s equivalent to Partner level.

Charles-Antoine Wallaert joined BCG in 2012 from Gilde Buy Out Partners, a private equity firm with a focus on mid-sized deals. Wallaert spent nearly four years with the firm, during his tenure involved with around fifteen due diligences processes for targets and portfolio companies. Prior to that, the French national, who is a graduate of Supélec and Sciences-Po Paris, worked for one of BCG’s top rivals, McKinsey & Company in Paris, and for mining and metals giant Rio Tinto. 

At The Boston Consulting Group, Wallaert works mainly for clients in the financial services sector and for private equity firms.

Johanna Benesty is a member of BCG’s Healthcare and People & Organization and Social Impact practices. Since joining the strategy consulting firm in 2007 from university (Benesty completed an internship at L.E.K. Consulting, among others), she has worked with healthcare companies on a wide range of strategic and operational issues, such as defining the go-to-market models for specific vaccines, developing strategies for generics, and defining generic-drug portfolios for emerging markets. She has also helped healthcare clients across Europe plan and execute a number of large-scale transformation initiatives.

In addition, Benesty has extensive experience partnering with social impact organisations dedicated to improving public health. Her work has included providing input on the World Health Organization’s HIV drug-resistance surveillance strategy; supporting the Global Fund to fight AIDS, Tuberculosis, and Malaria in developing partnerships with technical agencies, and ;assisting the WHO, United Nations, and Partnership for Maternal and Child Health in writing their common action plan.

Vinciane Beauchene joined BCG in 2008 from HR consultancy Mercer, where she latterly served as a Project Manager. Since joining, she has worked with clients across industries on issues related to strategy, transformation, large-scale project management, and human resources. Her experience includes leading major change-management initiatives, including postmerger integrations, culture enhancements, large-scale transformations, re-organisation and sales force effectiveness. 

In addition, Beauchene has teamed with clients on a number of talent-related topics, including talent-planning models, leadership assessment and development programmes, administrative function redesigns, and governance reviews. 

Earlier this year, BCG, which recently was named one of France’s top strategy consulting firms to work for, added Céline Boyer-Chammard and Loïc Mesnage to its French partner team. The Paris-based arm of the US-giant also orchestrated the firm’s investment into French software firm CAST. 

Meanwhile, in Germany, BCG’s country organisation – its largest in Europe – enjoyed its best year since the financial crisis, as revenue jumped by around €100 million to circa €830 million.
