  • »Show Me The Money
    Management consulting is a cash business. Now salaries and bonuses within the consulting industry are certainly not at the stratospheric levels enjoyed by their kindred brethren in investment banking. But consultants generally do realize much-better-than-average wages relative to their counterparts in the corporate world.
  • »Will ‘Knowledge Workers’ (Consultants) Be Replaced by Machines? It’s Possible
    The management consulting industry to date has been largely unscathed by the wave of technological change. However, there are signs that digital technologies are now beginning to disrupt the management consulting industry as well, with potentially deep and far-reaching consequences.
  • »A Force in Consumer Banking
    Banks have been stepping up their customer satisfaction game in recent years against the typical market forces at play. The pace of change has been head-spinning for an industry not well known for its swift response to customers.
  • »Time To Simplify and Get Organized (Well, At Least Your Cloud Services)
    The practice of adding cloud services in silos and based on specific department needs often results in overlapping and many different contracts with the same vendors.
  • »Riding the Waves of Healthcare Risk
    The modern healthcare system is much like the ocean—stormy, choppy, and hostile at times, soothing, calm and inviting at others. For surfers, the more waves you go for, the more you will catch, and the more likely you’ll “wipe-out.”
  • »The Department of Defense Wants a New Mantra
    “Do more with less.” It’s become a tired refrain that U.S. Department of Defense leadership is all too familiar with hearing from all directions, whether it is their direct superiors, Congress, or the Executive.

»Johan Aurik Elected to Lead A.T. Kearney

The partners of A.T. Kearney have elected Johan Aurik as managing partner and chairman of the board, succeeding Paul Laudicina, who has been the firm’s managing partner since 2006. Aurik, 53, joined A.T. Kearney in 1989 and became a partner in 1997. Since 2009 he has led the firm’s Europe, Middle East, and Africa region.  He will take over on Jan. 1, 2013 and serve a three year term.

“Johan has been one of the firm’s most dedicated, skilled, and passionate architects of the new A.T. Kearney and a tireless member of our global leadership team,” said Laudicina, managing partner and chairman of the board of A.T. Kearney. “He is a special leader and exceptionally well suited to take our firm forward and build on the 86-year legacy of A.T. Kearney.”

Aurik has nearly 25 years of consulting experience in industries including consumer products and retail. He was a member of A.T. Kearney’s board of directors during 2006. Other leadership roles within the firm include European leader of the consumer industries and retail practice and unit leader of A.T. Kearney’s operations in Belgium, the Netherlands, and Luxembourg.

A native of the Netherlands, he has lived and worked in numerous cities in both Europe and the United States and holds master’s degrees in history from the University of Amsterdam and from the Johns Hopkins University School of Advanced International Studies.

“I’m honored my fellow partners have elected me A.T. Kearney’s next managing partner and look forward to working with our 3000 colleagues around the world to ensure we deliver both the immediate impact and growing advantage our clients expect from us,” Aurik said.

Aurik is the eighth person to lead A.T. Kearney and the second managing partner elected since the firm regained its independence in a 2006 management buyout from EDS. Since that time, revenues increased 33 percent, the firm’s global footprint expanded by 30 percent and headcount grew 20 percent.
