The Hackett Group has expanded its global footprint by entering the market in Azië Pacific. Keith Robbins, the current CFO of BearingPoint, has been appointed as Managing Director of The Hackett Group Azië Pacific. Before his spell at BearingPoint, Robbins worked for more than 10 years for KPMG where he held various leadership positions in the Australia, New Zealand, and Singapore region.
An advisory office in Australia will be opened to support the expansion in the region. According to Hackett it already had relationships with many of the leading global 1,000 companies based in the Asia-Pacific region, the expansion will enable the consulting firm to better serve these clients.
"In recent years we've done significant business in the Asia-Pacific region due to the global nature of our client base," said Hackett Chief Operating Officer David Dungan. "By bringing on board Keith Robbins we expect to significantly expand our presence. Keith has a strong consulting background and an exceptional track record in the region.”
Keith Robbins over his appointment: "The depth of Hackett's benchmarking data and best practice intellectual property creates a value proposition for clients that is almost impossible to find elsewhere, even from the largest consulting companies. In today's global economic climate, companies are also very focused on cost savings, and on freeing up much-needed cash by improving working capital performance. This creates a tremendous market opportunity for Hackett, which I believe will drive significant success in this region."
