Irishman elected to European board of BearingPoint

23 Feb 2010

Peter Minogue, managing director of BearingPoint Ireland, has been elected out of 120 partners to the 10-person European board of the €500 million a year IT and management consultancy group.

The company last year announced a management buyout (MBO) to create a new European group employing 3,250 people with revenues in excess of €500 million.

Minogue and Irish head of financial services, Martin McKenna, have taken an equity stake in the operation. BearingPoint employs about 200 people in Ireland.

Minogue joined BearingPoint in 2006 from Cap Gemini. Prior to that he worked with IBM for 15 years and began his career in the civil service as an auditor in the Comptroller and Auditor General’s Office.

BearingPoint in Ireland specialises in consultancy and technology services across commercial, public sector and financial services, including utilities and telecommunications.

It has developed key offerings in ERP (enterprise resource planning) implementations, systems integration and application management services, as well as business consulting.

In Ireland, a key specialisation is agile development, a technology process which is designed to deliver IT faster and more cost effectively than traditional software implementation.
