- BCG re-elects Rich Lesser as Chief Executive Officer: In October, Rich will start his third three-year term as thehead of The Boston Consulting Group. The firm has averaged 15 percent growth over the past four years. Congrats to Rich and the rest of the firm!

Based in Minneapolis, FRWD will become a part of Bain’s digital practice group. FRWD has roughly 45 employees and did more than $6 million in revenue in 2017, making it a small acquisition for Bain, which did $3.4 billion in the same year.
