"We at BearingPoint are all truly grateful for the work Eric Falque and James Rodger have done in making BearingPoint into the people-centered consultancy it is today. Both were with the firm even before the management buyout in 2009," said Kiumars Hamidian, Managing Partner BearingPoint. "I thank Eric and James for their work ethic and passion for making our clients successful global players. Both have played a key role in developing our Firm in the last decade and the huge success of our Firm would not have been possible without Eric and James," Kiu Hamidian continues. "I wish Axelle Paquer and Eric Conway great success in helping us continue on our growth path and keeping us innovative, focused, and people-powered as we pursue our Strategy 2025."

Axelle Paquer will take over the regional lead for France, Belgium, Luxembourg and Africa from Eric Falque. Axelle has been with BearingPoint since 2001 and has vast experience in developing clients and delivering complex projects in the health care industry. She has been acting as the Head of all Public Service offerings in FBLA and member of the regional Management. Axelle will work closely with Eric Falque and the French Leadership team to ensure a smooth transition. Eric Falque, who is also acting as the Chairman of the Federation of the European Management Consultancies Association, joined BearingPoint in 2001 and has worked with many clients in the consumer business and luxury industry with a focus on strategy, transformation and digitalization. Over the last years Eric has led the practices to become one of the leading players in the consulting sector in this region.

The other change as part of the succession planning is in GROW's (Finland, Ireland, Italy, Netherlands, Norway, Sweden, United Kingdom) regional leadership, where Eric Conway will succeed James Rodger. Eric has been with the Firm since 1998 and has been leading the Irish Practice since 2017. James joined the Firm in 2005, then led the Global Automotive segment until 2013, ran the UK&Ireland region for six years until 2019 and then set up the new GROW region (Finland, Ireland, Italy, Netherlands, Norway, Sweden, United Kingdom). Throughout this time James has worked closely with a wide range of clients within the automotive industry, specializing in strategy, operational excellence and transformation.

As a consequence of GROW's regional leadership change, Gillian O'Sullivan will assume full responsibility for the Irish Practice on January 1, 2021. Gillian has been with BearingPoint since 2004 and is currently working on IT Strategy and Transformation projects at both the country and international levels.
