Bernhard Stadler

Client Service Partner & Co-Managing Director


Bernie strongly believes in the power of teamwork and has always enjoyed working with high-performance teams, both professionally and as a sportsman. Intrigued by the opportunity to support clients on critical projects and build a firm that disrupts the consulting market with an innovative value proposition on the back of the Future of Work megatrend, he joined a-connect in 2004 after completing his business studies at the University of St. Gallen. Bernie helped set up and establish a-connect's operations in Asia between 2005 and 2007 and has been our CFO from 2010 to 2016, besides his role as Client Service Partner. With the exception of the time he spent at INSEAD for his MBA, he has been based in Zurich since 2008.

Today, Bernie passionately works with global clients in life sciences, agribusiness, food and chemicals as well as the PE sector. In addition, he’s leading the global a-connect team in his capacity as the firm’s Co-Managing Director.
