What you will do

Technology, Media & Telecommunications (TMT) is one of the most exciting practice areas in our firm, operating at the intersection of disruptive technology and constantly-evolving consumer trends—a place where the ability to adapt determines who wins and who gets left behind. Working with startups and large incumbents alike, TMT consultants help companies take advantage of emerging trends in real-time and thrive. Our clients’ landscapes have seen more change in the last 10 years than it has in the previous 30 combined. That’s where you come in.

TMT consultants partner with clients to transform their industries, define winning business models, shape their value proposition and go-to-market approach, enhance their operational competitiveness, and create sustained advantage.

Project Leaders play a key role on client engagements, managing studies to define client needs and supervising research activities to obtain relevant data. Project Leaders oversee the formulation of hypotheses for research and investigation, and the advanced financial analysis of client, competitor, and industry data. They apply knowledge of business principles and industrial organization, develop actionable recommendations, and supervise work including strategic due diligence, product development studies, change management plans, and the evaluation of long-term investment opportunities. Project Leaders are also responsible for managing client contact and play a key role in the development and maintenance of high-level client relationships. 

Project Leaders lead a team of Associates and Consultants in their growth and development.
