BCG promotes two principals to partners
Dubai, June 26, 2012
The Boston Consulting Group (BCG), a global management consulting firm, recently announced the promotion of two of its principals to partners as part of its ongoing expansion in the Middle East.
In their new roles, Hermann Riedl and Dr Alexander Türpitz will draw upon their vast international experience in Technology, Media, Telecommunications (TMT) and the Public Sector, respectively, to further strengthen BCG’s business in the region, a statement from the company said.
Joerg Hildebrandt, partner, managing director and head of BCG’s Middle East operations, said: “Hermann and Alexander bring a wealth of experience to their new roles as Partners at BCG. Both of them have been with BCG for many years, and we believe that this development will further enable them to augment BCG’s business offering.”
“The Middle East is a key focus area for the firm, and we will continue to support leading thinkers in the industry in line with our commitment to be the advisor of choice for Middle East businesses,” he said.
Riedl was previously the CEO of telecoms provider Tele2 Germany, where he led the transformation from voice telephony to broadband. As of 2008, he joined BCG to support the development of its TMT business, initially in the Athens office and in the Middle East since 2010.
Dr Türpitz joined BCG's German office in 2000 and has since worked across Europe, US and Asia. He is a core member of the company’s operations, industrial goods and public sector practices, the statement said.
He has been based in the Dubai office since 2008, working mainly on economic development and public sector engagements in the Middle East region with a strong focus on Saudi Arabia, it said. – TradeArabia News Service
