Strategic consulting firm Bain & Company has promoted the 35-year-old Kyle Weza to partner in the firm’s Amsterdam office.

Kyle Weza has been with the consultancy for over a decade. He started his career with Bain & Company in 2006 – joining the firm’s Boston office following graduation with distinction (cum laude) from Princeton University. Having ascended the ranks to Senior Associate in less than four years, he took two years off to complete a MBA at Harvard Business School, after which he returned to the consulting firm. Over the past six-plus years, Weza has specialised in topics such as strategy, mergers & acquisitions, commercial excellence, performance improvement and organisation design, advising mainly clients in the consumer products and retail sectors. 

Effective the 1st of January, 2019, the US-national has been promoted to Partner in Bain’s Dutch office. Located in the Rembrandt Tower, Amsterdam’s tallest building named after the famous Dutch painter Rembrandt van Rijn, Bain Amsterdam employs a team of over 140 consultants, led by the Canadian Stephen Bertrand, who took the top role back in 2014 when he relocated from the US.

He has contributed to Bain’s growth in both the Americas and the Netherlands, and we are delighted to see him serve our clients and Dutch office.” Besides working for Bain’s Boston and Amsterdam offices, Weza also had stints in the firm’s San Francisco and Mexico City locales.

Weza has become Bain & Company’s 15th and youngest partner in Amsterdam. The local leadership team consists of several foreign nationals – Amsterdam’s location at the crossroads of Europe makes the office attractive to prospective Bainies on a global scale, with the hub boasting a long history of welcoming transfers from all over the world – namely Managing Partner Stephen Bertrand, and partners Jenny Davis-Peccoud, Anna Thal Larsen and Steven Tallman. The eleven other partners are Dutch nationals: Bianca Bax, Marc Lino, Jeroen Hegge, Michael Jongeneel, Robert Oushoorn, Lennert Spek, Allard Vegter, Véronique Pauwels, Fleur van Beem, Laurens-Jan Olsthoorn and Otto Verhage.

Founded in 1973, Bain has over 8,000 employees across 57 offices in 36 countries. The global strategy and management consultancy is led by the Filipino-American partner Emmanuel (“Manny”) Maceda, a businessman who in March last year became the first Asian leader in Bain & Company's history.
