Global management consulting firm Roland Berger has admitted two new members into its French partnership: Christian Heinis and Matthieu Simon.

Heinis has been with Roland Berger for thirteen years, serving the firm’s Paris office, as well as its Shanghai office for a three year stint. Before joining the German-origin consulting firm, Heinis worked for General Electric in its finance department.

His consulting experience spans working for a wide range of clients in financial services, utilities, process industries, oil & gas, defence and infrastructure among others. His areas of expertise focus on corporate transformation, operational efficiency, reorganisation, international expansion and market entry strategy.

Matthieu Simon re-joined Roland Berger in 2011, having previously served the consultancy briefly in 2006. In between, he worked for Deutsche Bank and BearingPoint, adding to earlier consulting experience previously gained at Big Four firm Deloitte and French boutique Advention Business Partners. 

Simon has worked with clients in the aerospace, manufacturing, transportation, telecom, energy & utilities, luxury, and government sectors, but has a main focus on automotive. In the field, he has delivered numerous projects for automotive and commercial vehicle manufacturers, suppliers, distributors, aftermarket players, mobility providers and start-ups. Simon’s expertise lies in corporate growth, strategy, mergers & acquisitions, operational performance, financial and operational restructuring, governance and organisation and digitisation.

Meanwhile in Paris, Roland Berger has promoted existing partner Eric Kirstetter to senior partner. He joined the consulting firm at the start of 2017 from rival Arthur D. Little, where he as a partner worked for seventeen years. He works in the Automotive practice, with a focus on technology and innovation management. 

Earlier this month in France’s strategy consulting space, Kearney (formerly A.T. Kearney) appointed the trio Eric Baudson, Guillaume Baril and Nicholas Veg as partner.
