Managing Director & Senior Partner; Asia-Pacific Leader, Corporate Development Practice
Nicholas Glenning joined Boston Consulting Group in 1991. Among his leadership roles are leading the firm's Corporate Development practice in the Asia-Pacific region. As part of this role, he provides private-equity advice and support.
Nicholas is also a senior member of BCG’s Financial Institutions practice. His major projects have been in the fields of transaction support, transformation, and strategy and growth. He has helped clients in the financial services, consumer, and logistics industries.
Nicholas has worked in BCG’s Boston and Melbourne offices. He believes that leadership matters, both in human capital and in the market, and that surprisingly few companies perform well in both areas.
Before joining BCG, Nicholas worked at ExxonMobil as a project manager.
In 2016, Australia’s largest companies demonstrated that shareholder value can be created across all industries, regardless of broader economic and geopolitical trends.
The strongest companies in Australia created superior value despite a subdued market. Regardless of their size or sector, these companies delivered growth in revenues and profit margins.
Over the past decade, highly acquisitive Australian companies generated considerably more shareholder value than nonacquisitive companies.
Despite relatively favorable conditions in Australia, local equities continue to lag behind global leaders. Many companies are not delivering the fundamental value that investors expect.
