Reinhard Geigenfeind

The 41-year old Reinhard Geigenfeind strengthens the firm’s Government & Defence practice – he will focus on technology consulting topics such as IT consolidation, IT security, analytics, application development, eGovernment and digital-led modernisation of public services. He brings with him nearly 20 years of experience in the public sector consulting environment, having previously served IBM, T-Systems and Hewlett-Packard. Most recently, Geigenfeind was a Director in the German Public Sector industry practice of DXC Technology. 

Commenting on why he joined BearingPoint, Geigenfeind said he is impressed by the firm’s track record in the public domain, stating “BearingPoint has accompanied the civil service for many years. I am delighted to be part of this shared success story and look forward to support clients with their technological challenges.”

Olaf Remmler

BearingPoint’s Utilities service line welcomed Olaf Remmler (48) as a new partner. Leveraging his over two decades of expertise in energy and sustainability, he has been tasked with helping the firm – BearingPoint has over 3,900 employees in 20+ countries – extend its presence in the German Utilities market. He will also take an active role in the development of new offerings, in the areas of renewable energy, power generation, energy trading and risk management. 

Remmler transferred from rival PA Consulting Group, where he worked for nearly fifteen years, latterly as a member of the firm’s global Energy & Utilities practice. Prior to that, BearingPoint’s new partner worked for PwC Consulting, and moved over to IBM in 2002 as part of the acquisition of PwC Consulting by the American IT services giant. “Change is a constant in the energy industry. BearingPoint is well positioned to help customer thrive.” 

Kiumars Hamidian, BearingPoint’s boss for Germany, said, “I am delighted that we have been able to recruit two highly experienced industry experts. They will support us with the continuation of our growth path.” 

Globally, BearingPoint generates €710 million in fee income, up from €441 million in 2009 when the European arm of the firm completed a management buyout from its global parent. By 2020, the Amsterdam-headquartered consultancy aims to reach the income mark of €1,000 million. 

Earlier this year, BearingPoint added Judith Sasse to its Group Compliance function. Sasse is based in the firm’s Berlin office.
