From the outset, we had a clear plan to guide us through the crisis. Having taken steps to protect ourselves and secure our business, we quickly adapted to the new reality, responded to changing client needs, and performed well.

An exceptional year - for an extraordinary business.
Message from Kiumars Hamidian

An exceptional year - for an extraordinary business.

There are more than 4,600 BearingPoint people, working in 23 different countries. I am proud of the way we came together to support each other, our clients, and our communities during the pandemic. We embraced the new reality with our unique BearingPoint spirit – harnessing digital technology, continually innovating, and operating seamlessly to deliver successful outcomes for everyone.

    Looking after our planet: giving back to the world around us.

    Looking after our planet: giving back to the world around us.

    2020 saw the launch of our ‘Decade of Purpose’, bringing fresh impetus to our engagement with people, planet, and society. We already offset all emissions, and we are embracing tech and data-driven solutions on our journey to sustainability. Hundreds of our people are active in ‘giving back’ through pro-bono and firm-sponsored programs such as ‘We reach out to people’. And we are supporting the charity Viva con Agua. But we are continually challenging ourselves to go further, bringing CSR closer to the heart of our business.

    2020 numbers

    Proactive response. Positive direction.

    Although activity dipped when the crisis first hit, we were less impacted than many others in our industry. We emerged from 2020 in good shape – adapting quickly, responding to changing client needs, and performing well. We delivered more than 1,500 projects in 49 countries for our clients, and we entered 2021 with a healthy cash position and a strong pipeline. We also expanded our capabilities with more than 900 new hires and 17 IP launches. To support our growth objectives, we made strategic moves by integrating strategy and innovation agency YouMeO and French start-up Steerio.
