Management and technology consultancy BearingPoint is entering an accelerated growth path to its target of €1 billion in revenue by 2020. Having established presences in China, the Czech Republic, Italy, Portugal, Romania, Singapore, the UAE and the US over the last three years, BearingPoint has reorganized its regional structure and appointed three new regional leaders to ensure sustainable growth and agility; it will also have a greater focus on innovation and globalization.

The Central Continental Europe region has seen especially strong development, and the region has been divided into two new regions, GCR (Germany, the Czech Republic, Romania) and SIA (Switzerland, Italy, Austria), which took effect January 1, 2017. Iris Grewe, a Swiss Partner in Financial Services with a focus on banking and capital markets, joins the global Management Committee of BearingPoint as leader of the SIA region. Kiumars Hamidian takes over the GCR lead in addition to his role as Service Line leader in the global Management Committee. He is also in charge of the innovation process including BearingPoint Ventures.

In the last years, BearingPoint has also expanded its geographical market coverage outside Europe. It is present in the US, the UAE, China and Singapore and has established alliance partnerships with West Monroe Partners in North America, Grupo ASSA in South America and ABeam in Asia. Marcel Nickler takes over responsibility for BearingPoint’s further globalization. Under his leadership, the Central Continental Europe region has grown by almost 35 percent since 2012 and greatly contributed to the firm’s overall development. In his new role, he assumes responsibility for further developing BearingPoint’s presences outside of Europe as well as the global consulting network comprising the alliance partnerships.

“I am very pleased that Iris Grewe, Kiumars Hamidian and Marcel Nickler, three very experienced BearingPoint Partners, are taking over these three key positions. Each of them has demonstrated outstanding expertise over a long period of time and achieved considerable success for our clients. The new organization helps us to expand our business for our clients, and we are well on our way to our target of €1 billion in revenue by 2020,” said Peter Mockler, Managing Partner of BearingPoint.
