Meet Alistair

My Role

I am a Manager in BearingPoint’s business strategy and transformation practice with a focus in Oil & Gas. During my four years at BearingPoint I have supported Oil & Gas clients with a wide range of projects from asset divestments to strategy planning.

My role has provided me with excellent opportunities to travel and to experience working abroad, highlights from the past few years include Spain, Portugal, South Africa, Namibia, Malawi and Mozambique – an ever expanding list!

Normal Day

I am currently supporting a South African Oil & Gas company to implement a sales and operations planning methodology. A “normal” day could involve an early start to meeting with CFO and agree the direction of the project for the next weeks. I always find time in the morning to catch up on emails and make sure that everything is in order. The day will then usually be followed by a busy schedule of meetings, facilitating client workshops and training courses, preparing board packs etc. Sometimes I will even finish work at the client in South Africa and fly back to London for meetings the following day.

Outside the office

I have made a real effort over the last few years to make the most of the countries where my projects have been based. I have been to the Kruger park several times, driven across the desert in Namibia and have been diving in Lake Malawi – not to mention a few days relaxing by the hotel pool.

Why BearingPoint

I have worked for several consulting companies in the past and what really stands out for me about BearingPoint are the people. From my very first day I felt part of the BearingPoint community, people here are always approachable and willing to share project experiences and support with the development of others.
