Richard Jackson, a partner at Bain & Company in the UK, has recently decided to transfer to the Dutch practice of the global strategy consultancy. Jackson, who serves as co-head of Bain’s Mergers & Acquisitions practice for the EMEA region, will be based in Amsterdam.
Jackson has more than 15 years of experience in the consulting industry, with a focus on M&A across a wide range of industries, including mining, oil & gas, retail and FMCG in Europe, North America, Asia and South America. He started his career at Bain & Company in 1993, after obtaining his MSc. in Manufacturing Engineering from the University of Cambridge. Besides a three year spell at investment firm Actis (2003 – 2006), Jackson spent the past 11 years at the consulting firm, and worked in the firm’s Johannesburg, London and San Francisco offices. In 2006 he was promoted to Partner, and currently he acts as co-head of Bain’s Mergers & Acquisitions practice for the EMEA region. Jackson also holds a M.B.A. from Harvard Business School.
Recently Jackson has decided to transfer from Bain’s London office to the Amsterdam practice, where he will help support the further expansion of the Benelux M&A practice and advise clients currently being serviced by the Dutch team. Jackson will in addition bolster the partner team, which includes among others Fleur van Beem and Jeroen Hegge, promoted to partner earlier this year, and Bain thought leader and veteran Chris Zook, who splits his time between Amsterdam and Boston.
