Our History

BearingPoint has been in Ireland for almost 50 years and our company history reaches back more than 110 years to the accountancy firm, Peat Marwick, founded in 1897.

In 2001 we separated from KPMG to form KPMG Consulting as an independent entity and in 2002 we changed our name to BearingPoint. In 2009 we had a management buyout by the European leadership to form a new independent partnership which, while it has European roots, addresses the needs of our clients globally.
