Riccardo Maltoni has joined the world’s oldest management consulting firm Arthur D. Little as a partner in Italy. 

The new partner brings over two decades of experience in consulting to the firm, gained at several top tier rivals. Most recently, Maltoni was one of the three Italy-based partners of Exton Consulting, a French management consulting firm dedicated to the financial services sector.

Prior to his four year at Exton Consulting, he led Infinity Value Consulting, a boutique consultancy he founded in 2010 after departing McKinsey & Company for his entrepreneurial stint. Maltoni served McKinsey in Milan for nearly a decade, rising to the ranks of Junior Partner, having previously worked for Kearney (formerly A.T. Kearney) and Accenture. 

During his career, he has advised clients on topics including strategy, business planning, IT strategy, sales & marketing, commercial optimisation, customer journey innovation, mergers & acquisitions and digital transformation. His industry focus is on clients in the financial services domain, in particular banks and insurance companies.

He has a constant interest in developing new technologies, even in his spare time, and this enthusiasm will give our financial services team a boost in the age of digitalisation.” 

With a team of over 1,000 consultants and staff across 30 offices, Arthur D. Little is one of the globe’s larger management consulting firms. The company, founded in 1886, focuses on strategy, innovation and technology. Its European footprint consists of offices in among other countries Germany, the Netherlands, France and the UK, with its Italian organisation based in Milan and Rome. 

A partner in the Milan office and the Financial Services practice, Maltoni has been tasked with growing Arthur D.
