Global strategy consulting firm Boston Consulting Group (BCG) has appointed nine new partners in Germany and Austria. 

The nine new managing directors (the equivalent of partner at the firm) are Andreas Graef, Christina Mühlenbein, Karlo Kampmann, Marc-André Drillose, Michael Widowitz, Simone Schwemer, Stiene Riemer, Tibor Mérey, and Timm Rugen. 

Commenting on the partners admissions, Matthias Tauber, the Head of BCG for Germany & Austria, said: “I am delighted to welcome them to our partnership. They have all done a tremendous job in the past years and I am convinced that their expertise, ambition, and high level of commitment will keep benefiting the Boston Consulting Group community and all of our clients.”

BCG appoints nine new partners in Germany and Austria

Earlier this year, BCG added a number of partners to its ranks, including Anastasios Panagiotou(ex-Oliver Wyman), Thilo Zelt (ex-Roland Berger) and Wilhelm Schmundt (who re-joined BCG from Bain & Company).

In Germany, Boston Consulting Group has seven offices: in Berlin, Cologne, Dusseldorf, Frankfurt, Hamburg, Munich, Stuttgart. In Austria, the consultancy is based in the capital city of Vienna. 

Despite the Covid-19 pandemic, BCG has shown remarkable resilience in the two countries this year, and is expecting to end 2020 with a higher revenue than in 2019. Johann Stiessberger, the national partner responsible for strategy and business development, said: “We will end the year with growth and emerge stronger from the crisis.”

Fast forward a few years, and Matthias Tauber has been tasked with growing BCG’s revenue in the region to above the €1 billion barrier, up from the current €930 to €950 million mark.
