“Admitting new Partners to BearingPoint is also great news for our clients and for us. It’s great for our clients because the Partners are at the heart of our independent partnership. They make sure that we keep client focus as our first priority at all times. It’s also good news for us because stewardship is a core principle of our partnership: we are determined to develop our people and our capabilities in order to build a stronger, healthier, and wiser organization for the benefit of future generations of employees.
