BearingPoint has named Eric Conway as the new Leader of its Irish operations. Conway succeeds Peter Minogue, who has retired, and will report to James Rodger, who remains BearingPoint’s Regional Leader for UK & Ireland.

Eric Conway will take control of BearingPoint’s Irish wing, following his promotion as the locale’s Country Lead. Conway will also be responsible for financial and communications sectors in addition to digital transformation and online engagements in the role – both areas of increasing performance in the consulting world, as the digital transformation consulting segment is now worth $23 billion. It is also an area which has become central to the growth of BearingPoint’s global profile. The firm recently ranked eighth in a ranking of the world’s top digital HR transformation advisories.

With a track record of overseeing the sale and delivery of large scale management consulting and technology implementation projects, Conway is recognised in the industry by customers and partners for effective and proactive customer management while providing advice. Having arrived at the firm some 16 years previously, he eventually reached the rank of Director in 2012, before quickly ascending to the rank of BearingPoint Partner in 2015 at the age of 40. During his time at BearingPoint, Conway also completed a Leadership and Management Skills degree at the prestigious US institution of Yale University  in its School of Management.

Based in Dublin, Conway specialised in the Commercial Services Industry Sectors, including Media and High Tech advisory services – something that will remain a key part of his job in his new role. As Ireland's Country Lead, he will report to James Rodger, a Partner and Regional Leader for UK & Ireland as well as a Member of the Global Management Committee at BearingPoint.

Conway inherits his position from Peter Minogue, who will retire from his present role as BearingPoint’s Managing Director in Ireland. Minogue joined the firm in 2006, having enjoyed a 7 year spell with consulting firm Capgemini prior to that. He had also previously worked as Head of Business Solutions at IBM – leaving that post in 1999.

BearinPoint’s business has undergone a period of sustained growth in recent years, which Conway will be charged with maintaining in Ireland.

The Netherlands-based firm saw its full-year revenue grow to €563 million in 2016, the highest level since the company’s inception seven years ago. Looking ahead, BearingPoint’s CEO, Peter Mockler, unveiled ambitious growth plans – with the management and technology consultancy aiming to break €1 billion in gross revenue by 2020. Their current global footprint, including network members and affiliates, spans 35 countries, with a collective staff of more than 10,100.
