Timo Schmid rejoined Boston Consulting Group in January 2016 after spending more than four years in the corporate M&A team of Wesfarmers in Australia. He is a core member of the Corporate Development practice and the BCG Transaction Center; he is also a member of BCG's Industrial Goods and Consumer practices.

At BCG, Timo focuses on corporate transaction-related work—mostly divestiture and buy-side M&A activities for corporate clients and financial sponsors.

Timo's recent project experience includes supporting a takeover process targeting a publicly listed industrial company; leading a spin-off of a retail division into a joint venture; managing the end-to-end divestment process of a portfolio company in the chemical sector; evaluating a growth acquisition opportunity for an industrial goods client; and advising a client business unit M&A team in the acquisition of an adjacent health care target.

Prior to joining BCG, Timo worked at Siemens as a consultant.
