The new team at INVERTO has integrated from a regional consultancy, into an international player with Boston Consulting Group

INVERTO´s Management Team has begun its next stage of growth as a company, as the new team ‘underlines the transition from a regional owner-operated consultancy to an international player’ in the Boston Consulting Global network.

Boston Consulting Group tackles the most important challenges in business and creates bigger opportunities. The company was founded in Boston, USA, 1963 and has a revenue of US$8bn. INVERTO was founded in Cologne, Germany, in 2000. Within the last five years, it has more than doubled its revenue, staff numbers, and presence within the European market.

 

A unique setup in procurement 

Five years after its successful integration into the Boston Consulting Group (BCG) network, it has been decided that the INVERTO team will be led by a new Management Team: 

 

“The key to INVERTO’s successful development is its ability to operate independently under the BCG umbrella, while at the same time working closely together with BCG experts worldwide”, said Jan Kischkewitz, who will be leading the long established and largest INVERTO business in Germany and Austria. “This setup is unique in the market, and we will keep optimising it, so we can continue to create maximum value for our clients and refine even further how we handle new tasks and trends.”

The new structure will take effect on 1st January 2022. 

 

Procurement and supply chain optimisation

Climate change, vulnerable supply chains, increasing prices, and digitisation are constantly throwing up new challenges for companies in international procurement markets. This is where BCG can offer clients the best support.

“Over the past five years, INVERTO and BCG have become the leading European consultancy for procurement and supply chain optimisation”, said Daniel Weise, Managing Director and Partner at Boston Consulting Group. “Our Experts from a range of markets and industries, who have in-depth functional expertise, are perfectly placed as transformation and implementation partners for clients. Our strong organic growth and the related opportunities for personal advancement will make our company even more attractive to top talent. The integration into BCG’s global network has proved very successful.”

Regardless of what supply chain disasters arise next, BCG is in the ideal position for the next phase of its growth. 

The new Management Team’s setup completes the transition from a regional owner-operated consultancy to a management-led entity operating at an international level.

“We are not only proud of the commercial success story of recent years and our transformation since we became part of BCG, but also of how our employees have developed”, said INVERTO co-founder Frank Wierlemann. “Many of them have progressed right through from interns and junior consultants to Managing Directors, and they are now taking over the baton from the company’s founders. That makes us extremely proud and grateful. I want to say a huge thank you to my co-founders Kiran Mazumdar and Markus Bergauer for our great teamwork in the Management Team.”
