Thomas Dauner

Senior Partner & Managing Director


The auto industry is about to change to an extent we haven't seen in 100 years.

Thomas  Dauner

Thomas Dauner is global leader of The Boston Consulting Group's automotive sector and part of the leadership team of the firm’s Industrial Goods practice.

Since joining BCG in 1995, Thomas has worked with car and truck manufacturers and suppliers along all steps of the value chain, with a strong focus on new-product development and sales and marketing topics. He has led a number of large-scale turnaround and performance-improvement projects in the automotive industry.
