Four of BCG’s Australian leaders – Daniel Selikowitz, Julian King, Phillip Benedetti, and Simon Pitt – have been elevated to managing director and partner level.

Boston Consulting Group (BCG) has made four managing director promotions across its Sydney and Melbourne offices; Daniel Selikowitz, Simon Pitt, Phillip Benedetti, and Julian King, who have all been with the strategy consulting firm and its data & analytics offshoot BCG Gamma from between seven years and over a decade.

Daniel Selikowitz
Based out of Sydney, Selikowitz has been with Boston Consulting Group for altogether ten years across two stints in Sydney, Chicago and New York, joining its partnership in 2019 (‘managing director and partner’ is the equity-level step up on the firm’s leadership rungs). Currently he serves as a leader of BCG’s Principal Investors & Private Equity and Public Sector practices in the Asia Pacific. He holds an MBA from Harvard Business School.
