Jan Heck joined BCG Platinion in 2012, following a multi-year career in IT and consulting services. Having obtained a Master of Science in Information Systems from the University of Münster, Heck became a Business Analyst for Business IT Strategy with Big Four professional services firm Deloitte Consulting in 2009. Over the following three years, he ascended the ranks to Consultant and Senior Consultant, before leaving to seek new challenges with BCG Platinion. He has worked with numerous multi-national and local clients, especially in the insurance industry. His work covers a wide-range of technology-related topics including IT strategy, IT target operating model, IT architecture, IT sourcing as well as advising clients on large-scale transformations, efficiency programmes and process optimisations.

Raffael Kazda joined the firm in 2007. His move came on the back of a two-year spell with fellow Big Four firm KPMG. Having arrived in 2005, he became a Senior Associate, before also moving on. Kazda holds a Master in Business Administration from Justus Liebig University Giessen.

The pair have become Associate Directors at BCG Platinion with immediate effect.

Meanwhile, BCG Platinion's parent The Boston Consulting Group is enjoying a strong period of growth in Germany. The firm added roughly €100 million in revenues in 2017, lifting its total in the country to around €830 million.
