Kicking off his career with a four-year stint between Berlin and Shanghai focused on M&A in the Corporate Finance advisory wing of Ernst & Young, Egler has been with BCG since 2011, originally for three months in San FranCisco. From there, he has spent time with the firm in Berlin and Sydney, working with clients in the Financial Services and Media & Technology industries. He holds an MBA from the Hass School of Business.

Timo Schmid
A member of BCG’s Corporate Finance & Strategy team, Melbourne-based Schmid co-leads the firm’s Principal Investors & Private Equity practice in ANZ. With BCG for the past five years, Schmid has altogether spent almost a decade at the firm, originally joining in for his first stint as Corporate Development project leader in 2007 – with a four-year period in M&A at Westfarmers in between. Earlier, he was with Siemens for four years.
