BCG Builds Its Global Capital Markets Practice With Two Senior Hires

Charles Teschner Is Appointed a Senior Partner and the Head of Capital Markets, North America; Will Rhode Is Appointed the Global Head of Capital Markets Research

NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwired) -- 07/14/14 -- The Boston Consulting Group (BCG) announced today that two industry experts have joined the firm: Charles Teschner as the head of capital markets, North America, and Will Rhode as the global head of capital markets research. These new senior appointments add a combined 40 years of industry experience to BCG's growing Capital Markets practice, which is led by Philippe Morel, a senior partner based in London.

Teschner, who will be based in New York, brings 25 years of experience in the capital markets industry. He joins BCG from McGraw-Hill Financial -- the parent company of Standard & Poor's Ratings, S&P Dow Jones Indices, S&P Capital IQ, Platts, and J.D. Power and Associates -- where he was the executive vice president of global strategy and corporate development. He also has 20 years of consulting experience with Booz & Company, where he led the Global Capital Markets practice.

At BCG, Teschner will lead the team advising North American capital-markets institutions, bolstering the firm's global network of senior advisors to the industry.

Rhode, who will also be based in New York, brings more than 15 years of experience in the capital markets industry. He was formerly the director of fixed income research at TABB Group, where he covered all fixed-income asset classes, global OTC derivatives reform, and market structure change. Rhode will lead BCG's capital-markets knowledge team, based in New York and London, and will oversee the firm's industry research and external publications.

"The Capital Markets practice has a significant and growing team," said BCG's Philippe Morel. "We are excited to further enhance our North American presence with the appointment of two experts who are highly regarded within the industry. Charles Teschner's 25-year track record of strategic leadership for financial institutions, and Will Rhode's deep research expertise and technical market knowledge, will be of great benefit to the capital markets clients that BCG currently advises and to those we will work with in the future."

Tom Reichert, BCG's chairman of North America, added: "The Capital Markets practice is a key element of our growth initiatives in the region. We are extremely pleased to bring Charles and Will onto our team and look forward to the progress they will drive."

Teschner said: "All players in capital markets -- banks, nonbanks, exchanges, technology firms -- face an unprecedented set of challenges and opportunities. I'm delighted to be joining the preeminent strategy firm in helping those clients refine and execute their strategies."

Rhode added: "These are some of the most important years in the history of financial markets. Never before has the industry encountered so many challenges, be they from regulation, technological change, or competition from alternative intermediaries. I am extremely excited to be joining BCG's capital-markets team at this critical juncture to help clients better understand their choices, as well as the opportunities ahead."

BCG's approach enables transformational change by applying innovative thinking and rigorous fact-based analysis to clients' most critical challenges. The firm's industry and technical expertise addresses a wide range of issues for capital markets institutions, including cost reduction, growth and profit improvement, coverage models, operating models, risk, and industry trends and analyses.

BCG's Capital Markets practice also links comparative benchmarking to strategic implications and actions. Expand -- an independent subsidiary of BCG since 2011, with offices in London, New York, and Singapore -- offers benchmarking services to BCG's capital-markets clients.

It's easy to assume that your app will run on a fast and reliable network. The reality for your app's users, though, is often a slow, unreliable network with spotty coverage. What happens when the network doesn't work, or when the device is in airplane mode? You get unhappy, frustrated users. An offline-first app is an app that works, without error, when there is no network connection. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Bradley Holt, a Developer Advocate with IBM Cloud Data Services, discussed...

Between 2005 and 2020, data volumes will grow by a factor of 300 – enough data to stack CDs from the earth to the moon 162 times. This has come to be known as the ‘big data’ phenomenon. Unfortunately, traditional approaches to handling, storing and analyzing data aren’t adequate at this scale: they’re too costly, slow and physically cumbersome to keep up. Fortunately, in response a new breed of technology has emerged that is cheaper, faster and more scalable. Yet, in meeting these new needs they...
In addition to all the benefits, IoT is also bringing new kind of customer experience challenges - cars that unlock themselves, thermostats turning houses into saunas and baby video monitors broadcasting over the internet. This list can only increase because while IoT services should be intuitive and simple to use, the delivery ecosystem is a myriad of potential problems as IoT explodes complexity. So finding a performance issue is like finding the proverbial needle in the haystack.
When it comes to cloud computing, the ability to turn massive amounts of compute cores on and off on demand sounds attractive to IT staff, who need to manage peaks and valleys in user activity.

In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Scott Jeschonek, Director of Product Management at Avere Systems, discussed the IT and busin...
According to Forrester Research, every business will become either a digital predator or digital prey by 2020. To avoid demise, organizations must rapidly create new sources of value in their end-to-end customer experiences. True digital predators also must break down information and process silos and extend digital transformation initiatives to empower employees with the digital resources needed to win, serve, and retain customers.
