Stefan’s functional expertise is centered around supply chain management, operational excellence, as well as production and logistics optimization. His clients include major multinational corporations as well as specialized segment players across the globe.

Kiumars Hamidian comments: “Congratulations to Stefan Penthin! With him taking up the role as Managing Partner in September, I know that our business is in the safest possible hands. Stefan is a highly trusted leader and has been exceptionally successful in creating client value, he has excellent abilities, deep industry expertise, and an outstanding commitment to our values and principles. In his role as the global leader for our market segments, Stefan has made a significant contribution to the outstanding business success of our firm with revenues increasing to over EUR 1 billion. The transition process is well on schedule, and fully supported by the entire partnership of our firm.”

Kiumars Hamidian, Managing Partner at BearingPoint since 2018, guided BearingPoint successfully through the pandemic and to new heights. Under his leadership, revenues rose to more than EUR 1 billion and the number of employees increased to more than six thousand in 2023.

During Hamidian’s time in office, 13 acquisitions were delivered, a new subsidiary in India opened, and the US and Asia business expanded. In addition, the first joint venture (Arcwide) has been successfully established, and BearingPoint RegTech and BearingPoint Beyond (today flourishing as independent companies) have been successfully spun off. Moreover, BearingPoint established its purpose “Together, we are more than business,” and embraced a people-centric culture. Once the handover to Stefan Penthin is complete, Kiumars Hamidian will start his official early retirement phase in early 2025.
