Amsterdam, May 20, 2019 – Management and technology consultancy BearingPoint today announced the appointment of Andreas Schöpperle as its new Group General Counsel. Mr. Schöpperle has more than 20 years of experience across Europe, APAC and Africa, with extensive work in cross-border commercial law. His expertise ranges from digital deliverables, software licensing, SaaS and technology development to supply chain and sourcing agreements, M&A and joint ventures, as well as business development activities and legal operations. He has also deep expertise in compliance and business ethics. Before joining BearingPoint, Mr. Schöpperle acted as Associate General Counsel and Legal Director for APAC and Emerging Markets at Boston Consulting Group, where he spent in total nine years. He reports to Managing Partner Kiumars Hamidian.
Mr. Schöpperle succeeds Wolf Frenkel, who will remain with the firm as Group Company Secretary, supporting both the management and supervisory boards of BearingPoint. Among his many accomplishments, Mr. Frenkel made significant contributions in the establishment of the firm’s governance and the redesign of the Partnership. He played a key role in several M&A transactions and joint venture activities, internal corporate reorganizations, as well as many complex IP transactions with several of BearingPoint’s largest and most influential clients and partners.
We are delighted to welcome Andreas to BearingPoint. His experience on a broad spectrum of international legal matters make him the perfect fit to lead our legal team, especially now as we embark on our Strategy 2025 and expand our global reach. I would also like to thank Wolf for his outstanding support over the last ten years. His leadership of the legal and compliance team helped secure the development and overriding success of our organization.
