Bain & Company partner Peter Slagt has relocated from the firm’s London office to its Kuala Lumpur arm. The former McKinsey partner joins Bain’s partner team in Southeast Asia, and will work with the firm’s consulting teams across the Asia-Pacific region on a range of leadership and organisational offerings.
Peter Slagt has over 20 years’ of experience in the consulting industry. He started his consulting career in 1993 with McKinsey & Company, after ten years in the Dutch Navy, working from the firm’s Amsterdam office. At the US-headquartered consultancy Slagt grew through the ranks, appointed partner in 2000, and since he has held a variety of leadership roles. Between 2007 and 2011 Slagt served as head of the McKinsey’s EMEA Organisation practice for the Benelux, and later he held the role of head of Africa and Northern Europe for the unit.
In May last year Slagt left McKinsey to join rival Bain & Company, where he, from the firm’s base in London, served as a partner in Bain’s global Results Delivery Practice, specialising in helping companies architect and implement large-scale transformation and change programmes. He has in the role advised the leadership teams and boards of some of the world’s top companies across multiple industries, including energy, telecom, high tech, banking, fast-moving consumer goods, and retail. In addition, Slagt has extensive experience in supporting large-scale transformations in the public sector.
Roughly 1,5 years down the line, Slagt has decided to relocate from the UK to Bain’s Malaysian operation. “We are very excited to have Peter join our team in Southeast Asia,” says Satish Shankar, Managing Partner of Bain & Company in Southeast Asia. “He brings with him more than 20 years of top management consulting experience from Europe and other emerging economies like Africa, which will be a tremendous asset to our partnership team and our clients in the region,” Shankar added.
Reflecting on his new challenge, Slagt comments, “I look forward to working with the outstanding Bain team in Southeast Asia to help the region’s mix of prominent local and regional enterprises and major multi-national corporations as they manage their business performance, build large-scale capabilities and continue to grow their businesses.”
