Nijmegen, the Netherlands headquartered consulting firm BCI Global has made it to Forbes’ 2019 list of America’s Best Management Consulting Firms. Yesterday, the prestigious business magazine Forbes released its annual listing of best management consulting firms. The economic, location and supply chain consulting firm BCI Global (Buck Consultants International) is one of the selected firms.
Supported by market research firm Statistica, Forbes compiled the list by surveying 7,500 partners and executives of management consultancies, as well as 1,000 senior executives who worked with such firms over the last four years. The selected 216 firms received the highest number of recommendations.

The outstanding quality of our teams and the results we achieve are recognized by our clients, according to Forbes. That is an enormous encouragement to continue our way of offering customers high quality advice”. Last year BCI also received from global biopharma and medical devices companies operating in Asia the industry award for Best Supply Chain Consulting Partner in Asia.
René Buck had the opportunity to personally meet Steve Forbes in Los Angeles. The well-known chairman and editor-in-chief of Forbes Media congratulated the BCI Global team with this great achievement.
