Eric Boudier is the global head of Commodity Optimization and Trading sector, and a member of Energy Practice leadership team.

As a BCG Fellow since 2014, Eric has been examining business model patterns in commodities. His focus is not only navigating volatility in commodity sourcing and pricing, but also turning that volatility into a competitive advantage.

This work builds on his years of experience helping energy and mining clients to model, forecast, and adapt their commodity trading, pricing, and risk management operations.

Before joining BCG in 2000, Eric worked as development project manager at Alcan Europe’s London office, as the metal risk manager in Alcan Europe’s Frankfurt office, as supply and risk manager/trader managing the global exposure of Elf Antar France, and as the assistant to the director of strategic planning and supply at Elf Antar France.
