Mário Conde, a partner at Bain & Company in Brazil, has relocated to the Netherlands, where he has been appointed a partner in the consulting firm’s Amsterdam office.

The 36-year-old has been with the global strategy and management consulting firm since 2011, when he joined after completing his MBA at INSEAD in France. During his tenure at the firm, Conde rapidly ascended the ranks, appointed a partner in December 2017. 

Having served Bain & Company in its São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro offices, Conde has now decided to pursue his career in Europe. Commenting on his move to the Netherlands, a country of 16 million people, Stephen Bertrand, Managing Partner of Bain’s Amsterdam office, said: “We are delighted that Mário has chosen to proceed his career in Europe within our office.”

The Canadian-origin country leader added that Conde brings a wealth of relevant and valuable experience to the Dutch practice. He specializes in topics including strategy and organization, customer strategy and marketing, performance improvement, mergers and acquisitions (M&A) and corporate finance. Conde also gained extensive experience with digital transformation, in particular advanced analytics, topics.

In Brazil, he advised several large insurance companies (property, casualty, life and personal insurance, reinsurance) and other companies on insurance-related matters (healthcare, auto insurance), as well as helped dozens of banks and players in the payments space. “Mário’s experience matches closely with the type of projects we deliver in the Netherlands,” said Bertrand.
