    Bain & Company is one of the world’s leading global business consulting firms. It was founded in 1973 on the principle that consultants should deliver results, not just reports and has dedicated itself to working with global leaders to help them make better decisions. Bain’s passion in converting those decisions to actions while delivering the sustainable success they desire has resulted in our clients historically outperforming the stock market four to one.
