L.E.K. Consulting has elevated education sector expert Kaushik Mohan to Partner in Singapore, with Mohan among a group of 15 new partners worldwide.

The global strategy and management firm L.E.K Consulting has admitted Singapore-based education consultant Kaushik Mohan to its partnership ranks among 14 such promotions worldwide. Mohan joins Ashwin Assomull, Danish Faruqui and Anip Sharma who were recruited as partners to the firm’s Singapore office over the past year, in what was the founding of the firm’s education practice.

Like his colleagues in Singapore, as well as fellow new partner Jitin Sethi in India and other members of L.E.K’s education practice, Mohan crossed from a lengthy leadership stretch at EY-Parthenon, where over the course of ten years he rose to the level of Senior Vice President at the firm’s Singapore Education Centre of Excellence. While at Parthenon, Mohan earned an MBA from the Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth College.

Since moving into the sector, Mohan has gained experience across the broad education spectrum, including in the higher and vocational education, English language, K-12 and education technology segments among others, with a focus on buy- and sell-side diligence, market-entry and growth strategy, and pricing. Mohan also works with investors and private equity firms on investment opportunities and related requirements.

Along with Mohan, 14 further consultants were admitted to the firm’s partnership, with one, former Strategy& Southeast Asia healthcare leader Klaus Boehncke, being newly recruited to the firm’s Munich office. The other new partners were spread between the firm’s London, Melbourne, Mumbai and US offices, which recently came under the regional leadership of new Americas Managing Director Robert Rourke.

“We are delighted to announce our newest L.E.K. partners and recognise their contribution to delivering exceptional results and impact for our clients,” said Global Managing Partner Stuart Jackson, a thirty-five year veteran of the firm, “We congratulate them and value their expertise as we broaden our capabilities and drive increased demand for our services across a diverse range of businesses and industry sectors worldwide.”

Altogether, L.E.K, which was founded in 1983, has a headcount of 1,400-plus professionals across 19 offices in the Americas, Europe and Asia-Pacific – including Beijing, Shanghai, Seoul, Tokyo and Singapore branches in Southeast and East Asia – where the firm is considered among the top 15 strategy consulting firms in the region. Toward the end of last year, L.E.K. launched a new Life Sciences Centre of Excellence in Singapore.
