Jessica Frame has become a new Managing Partner for the London office Boston Consulting Group. Frame has spent close to a decade at the firm, in roles on either side of the Atlantic.

Boston Consulting Group (BCG) is one of the three largest strategy consulting firms in the world – alongside McKinsey & Company, and Bain & Company. Each of the MBB has an important outpost in the UK capital, with BCG’s significant London presence first established in 1970. Since then, the firm has worked with many leading companies across industries, including consumer goods, health care, energy, and financial services.

The firm has been committed to expanding in the UK, with former London Managing Partner Patrick Roche spearheading its Centre for Growth in 2022. The Centre will help accelerate UK economic growth by working with businesses, government, and society to capitalise on these advantages.

As Roche exits the position, to take up a global role with BCG, Jessica Frame will push this – and various other initiatives – forward as the new Manging Partner of BCG London. Frame currently leads BCG’s retail work in the UK, bringing a customer-centric view to a broad range of retail and consumer topics. Deeply invested in people and culture, Frame was People Co-Chair of BCG’s Global Retail Sector.

Frame remarked, “I am honoured to lead Boston Consulting Group’s London office. Our passionate, deeply committed teams work to help some of the best UK businesses survive and thrive. We will continue to invest in our leading capabilities in resilience, digital transformation, data science and sustainability to bring the very best support to our clients in this increasingly challenging economic climate.“

Initially joining BCG as a consultant in New York in 2004, Frame has spent three spells at the firm. This was intersected by two periods in industry – leading multisite retail businesses The Vet, a PE-backed chain of veterinary clinics; and NutriCentre, an omnichannel natural health and beauty retailer. She was also a Marketing Director at Tesco in the UK, responsible for customer proposition development, future trends and innovation, and customer investments in pricing and promotions.

Looking ahead, Frame will oversee BCG’s London team and offering whilst the firm supports its clients in navigating a period of economic uncertainty. This includes dealing with the firm’s continued focus on sustainability and the acceleration of digital transformation.
