Boston Consulting Group (BCG) has promoted Matthias Tauber to Head of its Europe, Middle East, South America and Africa region, effective January the 1st 2022.

In the new role, Tauber will oversee a region that generates $3.4 billion in revenues, which equates to around 40% of BCG’s global business. The Europe, Middle East, South America and Africa region comprises than 10,000 consultants and employees across nearly 50 offices. 

Tauber currently is managing partner of Boston Consulting Group’s business in Germany and Austria and Central & Eastern Europe. During the two and a half years in the role, he managed to grow the firm’s footprint in the two regions, particularly in the digital space, with the firm’s digital offerings now bringing in 40% more revenue than when he took the reins.

The 42-year-old has been with the global strategic consulting firm since 2003, and was appointed a Managing Director and Partner in 2012. From 2013 to 2019, Tauber was part of the leadership team of the Industrial Goods practice. 

“I've been fortunate to work with Matthias over almost two decades and had the opportunity to see his dedication and inspiration making a difference for our clients and our teams,” said Christoph Schweizer, who will become Boston Consulting Group’s new CEO at the start of next month (he succeeds Rich Lesser). 

Tauber will take on the region’s responsibility from Christoph Schweizer, who previously led the CEMA (Central Europe, Middle East, and Affiliates) region and Hubi Meinecke, who previously led BCG’s WESA (Western Europe, South America, and Africa) region. Now combined into one position, Tauber will operate alongside co-regional leaders Sharon Marcil and Neeraj Aggarwal, who respectively chair BCG in North America and Asia Pacific.

“Our role as a strategic consulting partner to our clients has never been more critical, and I’m excited to lead our teams across the Europe, Middle East, South America and Africa region,” said Tauber on his appointment.
