London based management consultancy Baringa Partners has added three partners to its leadership team. Brynne Parker and Henning Bottger have been promoted from the internal ranks, while Mel Newton joins from Deloitte.

With 30+ partners and approximately 350 advisors Baringa Partners is one of the larger business advisories in the UK, and since 2011 the firm also operates a hub in Düsseldorf, serving clients across the DACH region. Baringa sets itself apart in the industry through its deep industry-focused approach, focused on three core markets:  Energy & Utilities, Finance Services and Telecoms and Media – a unit launched early this year. 

On the back of the firm’s growing portfolio, Baringa Partners has bolstered its leadership team with three new partners. Henning Bottger has worked in every one of Baringa’s energy sector practices since he joined in 2007 from Accenture, leading and delivering projects for a broad range of clients, including Centrica, EDF Energy, Sainsbury’s and more recently npower, E.ON and Osaka Gas. Bottger has in recent years been an “invaluable member” of the firm’s Energy Advisory Leadership Team, says Baringa Managing Partner Adrian Bettridge, and has also taken a lead role in building the practice’s Commercial Optimisation capability.

The second new partner, Brynne Parker, joined Baringa nearly ten years ago, also from Accenture. Having worked with clients such as Centrica, Shell and EGC (an account which he led for two years), Parker has progressed from Senior Consultant to becoming a “recognised and trusted leader” within Baringa’s Markets and Trading practice. Parker, an expert in complex major project delivery, most recently also led the consultancy’s initiatives around Customer Relationship Management (CRM) and alumni. 

Bottger and Parker are accompanied by Mel Newton, who joins from Deloitte, taking on a role in Baringa’s Organisation & People leadership team, a unit which of late is facing strong client demand. Newton brings over 20 years of professional and consultancy experience in delivering people change programmes, including in projects around culture change, organisational design and people transition, as well as all aspects of change management. Prior to Deloitte she spent nearly ten years with Detica and Syntegra, BT’s former IT services subsidiary.

Bettridge says he is “thrilled to announce the three key appointments”, adding “Our people are one of our greatest assets. All three appointments showcase the strength of our internal talent as well as the quality of new hires that we are able to attract to Baringa.”
