BCG brings its procurement consulting subsidiary to France

14 April 2021 Consultancy.eu 2 min. read

Boston Consulting Group (BGC) has expanded its service offerings in France with the launch of Inverto, its procurement operations consulting division. 

Since joining Boston Consulting Group’s portfolio in 2016, Inverto has leveraged its parent’s network to expand its geographic reach. Since the joining of forces, Inverto has grown from a 130-strong mainly DACH-focused player to a consultancy with more than 230 consultants and staff in seven locations. 

Following expansion into among others the Netherlands and the Nordics (and growing its UK operation), the firm has now landed in France. The unit is led by Denis Di Vito, who is making an internal transfer from parent BCG where he was a Principal. Earlier in his career he focused on procurement consultancy engagements at Oliver Wyman, IBM in its consulting arm and Ayming

“I knew Inverto already before I arrived at BCG,” said Di Vito to French platform Consultor. “Our objective is to offer a complementary offer to what BCG is already doing in the procurement landscape, by bringing together the in-depth strategic expertise of BCG with the execution and implementation power of Inverto.”

According to Inverto’s co-founding trio – Frank Wierlemann, Kiran Mazumdar and Markus Bergauer [established in 2000] – the firm had been planning the expansion into Europe’s third largest economy for months, as part of its broader growth plan for Europe. In France, Inverto aims to build a 30-strong team in the coming “two to three years” stated Di Vito. 

The move comes two year after Boston Consulting Group launched its BrightHouse and Digital Ventures subsidiaries in France. Other divisions that also operate from its Paris office include BCG Gamma (artificial intelligence) and BCG Platinion (technology transformation).
