Episode 33: Keith Bevans of Bain & Company Discusses Consulting, Recruiting and More
Bain & Company—widely considered one of the most elite consulting firms in the world—is a coveted post-MBA destination for students at top business schools in every part of the globe. Our guest today, Keith Bevans, is a partner in Bain & Company’s Chicago office and also heads Bain’s global consultant recruiting efforts. The latter involves managing the team that identifies and attracts talent to Bain’s offices and ensures that the next generation of leaders continue to make Bain “The best firm to work for.”
While Bain primarily targets top-20 schools for MBA recruiting, it hires from more than 60 schools around the world and is committed to finding the best talent wherever it can. Bevans is a Bain lifer. He started as an associate consultant out of MIT, where he earned his bachelor’s and master’s degrees in engineering. He left Bain to get his MBA at Harvard Business School but returned upon graduation and has been there ever since. For much of his career, he has been a client-facing partner in the firm’s Performance Improvement practice, with a focus on processes to improve effectiveness and efficiencies.
