LCP Consulting joins BearingPoint

Transaction strengthens BearingPoint’s end-to-end service offering to retailers

London/Amsterdam, March 14, 2017 – LCP Consulting, the leading international specialist consultancy in customer-driven supply chain management joins European management and technology consultancy. With this transaction, two highly profitable and award-winning companies have joined forces. LCP deepens BearingPoint’s operations service line and expands its capabilities in the retail, consumer goods, and manufacturing. In addition, LCP brings a suite of strategic supply chain management tools and fact-based methodologies to the BearingPoint portfolio.

BearingPoint is continuously adding capabilities and geographic coverage, and the acquisition of LCP is the latest in a series of acquisitions that BearingPoint started making three years ago. Previously acquired teams include manufacturing experts in Italy, a leading digital management consultancy in the Nordics, operational performance specialists in the UK and management and reporting specialists in Germany.

“Joining BearingPoint will enable LCP to accelerate our growth plans within a range of industry sectors both in the UK and internationally. We are keen to leverage BearingPoint’s wider capabilities, notably in digital, for the benefit of our existing client base. Becoming part of a leading international consulting organisation opens up new personal development and career opportunities for our people.”

John Lockton, Managing Director LCP Consulting

“LCP is a recognised leader in their field and the acquisition of such a high calibre consultancy fully supports our growth strategy in both the UK and internationally.”

Peter Mockler, Managing Partner BearingPoint

“Joining forces with LCP allows us to accelerate our growth plans in retail and supply chain within the UK consulting market. I am really excited by the opportunities that this merger of two award winning consultancies will open for us and our clients.”

James Rodger, Regional Leader for UK and Ireland BearingPoint

Founded in 1985 by Professor Alan Braithwaite, LCP won the top award in 2016 for “Project of the Year” from the Management Consultancies Association (MCA) – the UK’s representative body for the consulting industry. LCP’s clients include retailers, manufacturers, public sector and academic institutions, and companies involved in logistics and distribution, chemicals, oil and gas, pharmaceuticals and the automotive industry. The company has developed a unique set of fact-based supply chain analytical and diagnostic tools.
