Philip Dunne is UK Managing Partner at Roland Berger and has more than 25 years of industry and consulting experience, focusing on the automotive, aerospace and general industrial sectors. He splits his time equally between private equity and corporate clients, leading large-scale cost transformation and performance improvement programs, often in a transactional environment. Philip combines strong strategic skills with a pragmatic operations outlook, and also has a deep understanding of people-related issues such as culture and change, which are of particular value in a transaction or merger environment.
Philip joined Roland Berger in 2020. In the course of his career, he has held positions as Managing Partner, Head of Private Equity and Automotive Practices, as well as being a member of the leadership team for a major transaction advisory services division.
An engineer by training, Philip began his career in 1987 as a graduate engineer designing ground-to-air missiles. He then spent five years in design and manufacturing roles in the French operations of a major automotive company. This was followed by a brief (and unsuccessful!) career as a professional rugby player, prior to returning to business to lead a successful career at a number of international financial companies. Philip earned a degree in Mechanical Engineering from Birmingham University and an MBA from Cranfield School of Management.
