Walter joins from Accenture, where as a Managing Director he led Management and Strategy Consulting within the German-speaking countries and most recently led their Global M&A practice. Previously, he spent over 15 years at the management consulting firm Roland Berger, most recently as a Senior Managing Partner and Head of the Management Committee for Austria, Switzerland, and Germany.

At Accenture and Roland Berger, Walter led numerous recruiting projects for their senior talents through partnering with almost all well-known executive search firms. In this aspect, we are even more proud that Walter has joined HIEC to serve our clients with his remarkable experience. He will focus on large and mid-size companies across Industry and Professional Services, mostly from a technology and digital perspective.

Walter said, “I am really excited to join such a strong executive search firm like HIEC. This to me is the perfect platform to serve my clients with strong advice on people topics at the senior executive level.”

“Given my 10+ years with Accenture, I have a clear view of what it takes to gain a leading position in a technology-driven world. All industry companies or professional services providers are seeking talent who know how to be successful in the ‘digital era’; either when leveraging disruptive technologies to optimize existing core processes or when thinking digital in case they’d like to launch a new business model. I’m excited for the opportunity to provide my clients with the ‘digital natives’ they need.”
