Olivier Scalabre is a member of The Boston Consulting Group’s Industrial Goods practice and leads the firm’s Operations practice in Western Europe, North Africa, and South America. Over the past three years, he has launched BCG Operations Centers in Paris, London, and São Paolo. The centers serve clients through 100 experts dedicated to manufacturing, supply chain, procurement, and services operations across industries.

He supports large operations programs for industrial goods clients in multiple sectors such as railway, energy and utility, consumer electronics, and automotive. He is also responsible for the overall BCG relationship with clients focused on large-scale engineered products and projects.

Olivier also leads BCG’s initiative on Industry 4.0, and the creation of BCG Innovation Centers for Operations (ICO) across the world, a network of model factories that leverage technologies to achieve new levels of operational performance.

Throughout his career at BCG, Olivier has analyzed the evolution of large industrial companies' manufacturing footprints and operations. In May 2016, he presented a TED talk—part of a series of talks curated by TED and BCG—about the fourth manufacturing revolution, explaining how it will produce a macroeconomic shift and boost employment, productivity, and growth.

As part of his career at BCG, Olivier has worked both in mature and emerging markets, most notably out of the BCG New Delhi and BCG Paris offices.
