FRONT Consulting has added two professionals to its team in the Netherlands: Larissa Schickendantz and Stephanie Bok. The firm is looking to enter its “next stage of growth”, while facing down heated competition in the consulting space.

Founded in the mid 2000s, FRONT Consulting works primarily for clients in the asset and wealth management sector, serving mainly large institutions from its offices in Belgium, Luxembourg, Spain, France and the Netherlands. The firm has expanded its expertise with the addition of two new professionals to its Amsterdam team.

Larissa Schickendantz has joined FRONT Consulting as Technical Solution Consultant – and will work on one of the firm’s key propositions in the Services realm. She previously worked for Moneyou, a subsidiary of Dutch banking institution ABN AMRO, where she was responsible for the firm’s financial administration.

At Moneyou, Schickendantz, as part of her study Applied Mathematics, completed her bachelor thesis in which she developed a model to predict the outflow of Dutch savings clients. Schickendantz also completed an internship at Joe Pie, a blockchain start-up. During her spell, she worked on several projects, including one that consisted of creating an own cryptocurrency (based on Ethereum).

Commenting on her decision to join FRONT Consulting, Schickendantz said; “FRONT is an ambitious organisation where personal development is an important aspect. I believe I can learn a lot at FRONT, which is one of my personal goals. I cannot wait to work together with passionate colleagues and I am sure we can bring FRONT one step further!”

Schickendantz is joined by Stephanie Bok, who has arrived at FRONT Consulting as a Sales and Office Representative. Prior to her new role, Bok worked as a PMO Officer in the Project Management Office of the CFAR project at APG Asset Management. In fact, it was in this capacity that she first met consultants from FRONT Consulting, and was convinced by their pragmatic and value-adding approach. She said, “Seeing FRONT Consulting operating at a client made it easy for me to gain confidence in the firm and its work. This has inspired me in starting this new adventure.”

Commenting on the hire, Sergio Franssen, Managing Director of FRONT Consulting in the Netherlands added, “It is a pleasure – in our journey of growth towards becoming a leading European Asset Management servicing company – to welcome Stephanie and Larissa to our team.”

In December last year, FRONT Consulting partner Sam Dezillie unveiled in discussion with that the consultancy is eyeing accelerating its growth in the coming years. See the article ‘FRONT Consulting embarks on its next phase of growth’ for further reading.
