“We are delighted to have the team of Amane Advisors joining our Roland Berger family. With our new colleagues, we welcome experts with a strong network and many years of experience in the industry. Together, we will be able to develop even more comprehensive and tailored solutions for our clients,” said Stefan Schaible, Global Managing Partner at Roland Berger.

Roland Berger’s bolt-on comes at a time of growing demand for water expertise. Against the backdrop of progressing climate change, water management has become a top priority for business and governments. Players in the water ecosystem, such as investors, suppliers and utilities, are facing complex business and environmental challenges and increasingly require in-depth knowledge, insights, and guidance around emerging technologies.

Geoff Gage, former Managing Partner at Amane Advisors and now Senior Partner at Roland Berger, commented: “Studies show the financial impact of climate change will primarily be felt through the water cycle, meaning the demand for strategic advice on water has never been greater.”

“We believe we have found the ideal place, in Roland Berger, to empower and support a wide range of businesses, utilities, and municipalities across the globe in developing, optimizing, and scaling water-related solutions to meet the challenges and capture the opportunities ahead. We look forward to leveraging our passion and expertise to demonstrate water as the critical enabler that it is and to benefit Roland Berger clients around the world.”
