Robbert Kuppens, a 25-year business and IT management veteran and partner in The Boston Consulting Group‘s office in Amsterdam since January, has been appointed the company’s global chief information officer.
He is expected to lead BCG’s global IT function as his predecessor Tom Dionisio retires following 15 years as CIO, the company said Monday.
Prior to joining BCG, Kuppens was CIO for Europe, Middle East, Africa and Russia and a member of the global IT executive team at Cisco.
He also worked at Digital Equipment Corp. and NCR Corp. before moving to KPMG‘s Nolan, Norton & Co. as a partner for e-strategy.
Kuppens graduated with degrees in computer science and econometrics from the University of Utrecht.
