After he died, Marvin Bower took his place and introduced completely new principles. For him the education of his employees was more important than the experience, and also the clients interests were placed before those of the firm. Under his leadership the company became one of the most respected consulting companies in the world. Over the years the firm began to expand its international presence and to analyse and improve his own organisation structures.
