Chief Risk Officer (CRO)

Adam Farber

I currently serve as Boston Consulting Group’s Chief Risk Officer, supporting the firm by keeping a pulse on key risks to the business and work to ensure that the necessary management strategies, policies, support systems, and employee engagement models are in place to strengthen our business and provide confidence to our clients. I lead the firm’s internal Risk Management function as well as our Cyber and Physical Security teams and oversee BCG’s global Data Management/Data Privacy efforts. I also serve on BCG’s Operating Committee.

Prior to becoming CRO, I served as Chair of our Industry Practices and Global Leader of our Health Care Practice Area.

In addition to BCG leadership roles, I work closely with healthcare clients – particularly those within the biopharma, medical technology, and health care services sectors – to help them grow their businesses and better serve patients.
