The 2019 Rising Stars of the Profession: 35 Under 35

We’ve seen the future of consulting… and they look great!

Don’t believe us? Well, we’ll prove it over the next 22 pages. Everyone knows the firm with the best talent wins. And in this issue, we highlight the best young talent the profession has to offer. And there’s no doubt, this next generation of consultants is poised to do great things… and typical to this generation’s style, they’ll probably do it all on their own terms. Once again this year, we’ll gather in Chicago in April to officially recognize the Rising Stars of the Profession—Consulting’s 35 under the age of 35.
