Fabrice Roche has joined management consultancy BearingPoint as a New York-based partner focusing on digital transformation engagements. 

Roche brings more than 20 years of management consulting experience leading complex programs and transformation initiatives for Fortune 500s in North America and Europe. He works with C-suite executives to analyze existing operations and identify areas where digitalization can drive efficiency, innovation, and customer engagement.

During his career, Roche has completed more than 50 implementations of project management offices (PMO) within the context of M&A and divestitures. He has particular depth of experience working with clients in life sciences and retail/consumer.

“We have ambitious plans for future growth in the US. Expanding our US presence is one of the pillars of our Strategy 2025, as it represents one of our core markets outside Europe for our European clients. In this context, Fabrice Roche will bring substantial momentum to our clients and us. I am delighted that Fabrice is now part of the BearingPoint family,” said Matthias Loebich, BearingPoint regional leader GLO and Arcwide.

Fabrice Roche joins BearingPoint as US partner

Roche joins BearingPoint from Sia Partners, where he spent four years as a New York-based associate partner in the digital transformation practice. Before that he spent four years at EY US, where he was a partner leading the US Central region’s program and portfolio management competency.

Earlier in his career, Roche spent 12 years at UMT (acquired by EY), a consulting firm focusing on project and portfolio management, process design, and software implementation services.

He was also previously a manager at CGI, as well as a consultant at Lyon Consultants and Andersen Consulting (Accenture).

“Joining BearingPoint as a Partner in digital transformation allows me to contribute to the firm’s commitment to helping organizations thrive in the digital era,” Roche said. “I am convinced we already have a strong foundation in place with the right team to empower our clients to navigate the rapidly evolving digital landscape, seize new opportunities, and realize the full value of digital transformation.”

BearingPoint traces its roots back to the spin-off of KPMG’s consulting business in 2000. In 2002, the firm acquired a majority of Arthur Andersen’s business consulting practices and rebranded as BearingPoint. In the wake of the financial crisis, the firm’s US operations filed for bankruptcy and were sold to PwC and Deloitte in 2009. BearingPoint’s European partners completed a management buyout and continued the company.

Today the Amsterdam-headquartered firm has more than 5,300 people across Europe as well as offices in the US and China to serve its large corporate clients. The firm provides services in people and strategy, operations, finance and risk, customer and growth, and technology. It currently has one US location in Chicago.

BearingPoint is allied with West Monroe Partners in North America.
