Peter Mockler Elected to a Second Term as Worldwide Leader of BearingPoint
Re-election testament to the strength of leadership and business strategy of the Managing Partner
London/Frankfurt, July 26, 2012 – Peter Mockler, worldwide leader of management and technology consultancy BearingPoint (www.bearingpoint.com), has been formally re-elected by the firm's partners to serve as Managing Partner for a further three year term commencing September 1, 2012.
The experienced management consultant first took charge during the management buyout of 2009 that established BearingPoint as an independent, partner-owned, international management and technology consultancy. Mockler was able to guide the firm through the transformation process and further develop its practice and offering to clients. Under the leadership of Peter Mockler as Managing Partner the firm has increased revenues from €441m (2009) to €514m (2011) and the number of employees grew from 3,200 to more than 3,400.
The re-election sends a strong signal from BearingPoint: not only are the shareholders very pleased with Peter Mockler’s performance but they also want to continue following the same strategy. In his second term as Managing Partner the 51-year-old consultancy expert will concentrate on profitable and sustainable growth as well as strengthening the reputation and position of BearingPoint as a management and technology consultancy.
Peter Mockler said: “Now, three years after the MBO, we have a very strong position in the consulting market. I am delighted to continue developing BearingPoint’s presence and practices, together with our more than 3,400 people, to further our successful value creation strategies for clients. We will also focus on international cooperation to establish our unique combination of management and technology consultancy for clients across countries and businesses.“

He was elected Managing Partner for the first time in 2009.
