Management and technology consultancy BearingPoint has announced 19 new partners. The partner nominations were endorsed during the firm’s recent international partner meeting in Amsterdam. With the latest batch of intakes, the firm’s partner team rises to more than 150.
With more than 3,500 professionals BearingPoint is one of the largest European origin management consultancies. Since the firm’s management buyout in 2009 the business advisory has gone from strength to strength – last year BearingPoint booked record revenues of €560 million, 27% higher compared to five years ago.
In line with the firm’s growth ambition – BearingPoint has internally set the ambition to reach a landmark €1 billion by 2020, no small task – the consultancy has bolstered its partner team with 19 new additions. All partners have been promoted from internal ranks, with 17 of them male, holding an average age of 42 years. With 36 years of age, Philipp Fahr, Thomas Steiner and Rabih Hamdan are the youngest partners of the pack. Not surprisingly Germany – with 8 offices BearingPoint’s largest market – serves as the most important breeding ground, bringing forward eight partners, followed by France (3 partners) and Ireland (2 partners).
