About Us

Our Team

The executive team of ABE has extensive global experience in strategy consulting and market analysis in a range of industries. ABE’s multinational network of associates combine different language skills and a range of business and industry experience, such as TMT (technology, media and telecom) and life sciences.

The founders of ABE, Atul Banerjee and Andreas Eigenmann, have previously worked with global consulting firms such as Accenture and ZS Associates as well as with specialized market analysis firms. We have lived and worked in many countries around the world, and have an appreciation of different cultures and markets, which has given us the ability to successfully build an international client base and network of associates.

Having worked together on many international projects, and sharing the same philosophy of providing professional services and value to our clients, we set up ABE Associates in 2006 to offer higher-value services.
