International management consulting firm L.E.K. Consulting has appointed seven partners to its Partner Development Committee.

The firm’s Partner Development Committee is charged with nurturing the development of Principals at L.E.K. Consulting that have the ambition of joining the firm’s partnership. Globally, the consultancy, which has a 30+ year heritage and is headquartered in London, has over 1,200 professionals across 19 offices in the Americas, Asia-Pacific and Europe, with the firm’s top talent aspiring for a career in consulting keen on ascending to the firm’s top rank.

The Committee oversees the partner election process, including managing the development of top consultants, evaluating their readiness for election to the partnership and ensuring that opportunities and standards for partner promotions are consistent across the firm.

The seven-strong Committee is headed by Carol Wingard, a Boston-based partner that heads L.E.K. Consulting’s Industrials sector in the Americas, and serves as co-head of the firm’s global Industrials sector. She has been with the firm since 2000, and between 2005 and 2010 she served as founding partner and managing partner of L.E.K. Greater China. Also on the Partner Development Committee is Peter Sullivan, who is the firm’s Chief Talent Officer. Sullivan joined L.E.K. Consulting three years ago from Strategy& (formerly Booz & Company) and previously worked in the HR and recruitment arms of McKinsey & Company and Booz Allen Hamilton.

The five other partners appointed to serve on the Committee are Remy Ossmann (Paris), Peter Ward (London), Simon Barrett (Sydney), Lucas Pain (Chicago) and Sue St. Sure (Los Angeles).

“These Partners have demonstrated not only outstanding leadership, but also superior track records when it comes to developing future leaders. We are delighted to entrust them with such an important role in shaping the careers of our best people and the future leaders of the firm,” said L.E.K. Global Managing Partner Stuart Jackson. 

Last year L.E.K. Consulting attracted a financing package from Lloyds Bank to fund the firm’s expansion plans.
