The new leader takes the reigns following stellar performance in his previous role. During his five year leadership of the Insurance industry vertical for the DACH region (Germany, Austria and Switzerland), he managed to considerably grow the practice. Last year alone, the arm bolstered its sales by 40 percent. 

Commenting on the promotion, Dirk Vater, Head of Bain’s Financial Services practice in EMEA, said: “Christian's profound expertise and industry experience strongly qualify him for this international leadership role. He has contributed significantly to our business success and built long-term customer relationships. He is the right man to consolidate our strong position in the insurance industry in EMEA.”

Last month, Bain & Company appointed former McKinsey & Company consultant Michael Jongeneel as the leader of its Financial Services practice in the Netherlands.
