On Feb. 28, 2017, BearingPoint announced the acquisition of an Italy-based manufacturing and operations consulting unit, its third acquisition in recent memory, following Magenta Advisory in 2015 and Trinity Horne in 2014. To expand its portfolio, BearingPoint has largely invested organically, opening offices in its core geography, EMEA, and using its alliance partners to serve clients where it does not have a direct presence (notably, offices in Chicago [with West Monroe Partners], Singapore [with ABeam Consulting], Shanghai and Dubai). For instance, in 2H16 BearingPoint expanded its footprint in Europe by entering Portugal with the opening of an office in Lisbon, and strengthened its leadership team by promoting to partner 20 experienced professionals, some of whom have been with the company for as many as 19 years, across Austria, France, Germany, the United Kingdom, Ireland and the Middle East.
