"Bain & Company has been working with clients in the Austin and San Antonio area for decades, and this move brings us closer to many of our enduring clients," said Peter Bowen, a partner at Bain & Company and head of the Austin office. "It will also facilitate collaboration with new clients—in industries such as technology, retail, consumer products and fintech—while creating further access to one of the country's fastest growing talent hubs."
Bain will now be closer to its clients in the burgeoning tech hub. "Austin is an exceptional place to recruit top business and technical talent, and we looking forward to welcoming a diverse group of new and transferring team members to help us serve our many clients in Austin," said Chuck Whitten, managing partner for Bain’s US Southwest region.
The firm, which advises many of the largest companies the world, said the new office’s design was made through a collaborative effort with employee volunteers ranging from interns to senior leadership. The Bainee volunteers drew on inspiration from Austin’s local music and food scenes, greenspaces, and architecture, according to the firm.
