Atos Consulting has in the first six months of the year welcomed a raft of new experienced and junior consultants to its team in the Netherlands. “We are seeing heightened demand for our consulting and digital transformation services in the Netherlands,” said Bart van den Broek, who leads the firm’s consulting division for the Benelux and the Nordics. 

With over 122,000 employees globally, publicly listed Atos is one of the world’s ten largest IT services companies. Since 2002, when Atos acquired the Dutch and British divisions of KPMG Consulting for around €650 million, the professional services group has a strong presence in the Netherlands. Testimony to its track record, last year consultancy buyers in the country – executive, managers and procurement experts – lauded Atos Consulting as the Netherlands’ top management consulting firm, ahead of the likes of the Big Four and strategy giants such as McKinsey and Boston Consulting Group. 

“The combination of strong consulting capabilities, combined with the global IT capabilities of Atos makes us a leading player in the industry,” said Van den Broek. “And because the importance of IT in today’s rapidly digitising world is only increasing, we believe we are ideally positioned to serve the market today and in the future,” he added. First Day at Atos, AmstelveenExpanding on the firm’s headcount has been a top priority to meet growing client demand, and analysis of the firm’s new hire roster shows that over 30 recruits have been brought on board since the start of the year. Over ten senior hires have been tapped to bolster competency areas, and not surprisingly, the largest number have joined the firm’s Digital Transformation practice. With digital leaving a mark on practically any industry and organisation, Atos Consulting’s digital consultants specialise in helping clients understand the opportunities and threat that arise from digital, and with the translation into roadmaps and planning, as well as the delivery of digital transformation programmes.

New joiners to the Digital Transformation practice are Timo Moors, Tom Snuverink, Sébastien Naus, Guido de Beer and Danish Nadeem. 

A group of five has also joined the Business Performance Improvement practice, which supports clients with making their processes faster, more efficient, flawless and more agile. The unit’s main propositions include process design, business process re-engineering, value stream mapping, data mining and project execution, including change management. The arm also houses Atos Consulting’s Industry 4.0 and Robotic Process Automation (RPA) expertise. Alena Lakova, Corrie Barreveld, Jakub Nowakowski, Cenk Coskun and Saschia Stoffers have joined this unit, lifting the unit’s team size to nearly 50. 

The Governance, Risk & Compliance service line has been expanded with two experts: Martijn Zantinge and Jerrel Lachmansingh. This practice works with clients to enhance their risk management, company-wide compliance, and with the implementation of risk & compliance solutions. Offerings in the area of internal audit, identity and access management and cybersecurity are also part of the portfolio.

Meanwhile, a group of twenty young professionals have joined Atos Consulting’s traineeship programme. Known internally as Foundation, the two-year programme grooms starters into consultants, providing them with training & development, on the job experience during consulting engagements, and the ability to learn from seniors in the industry. 

The young professionals that have been admitted into the Foundation programme are Niels Korts, Joël Nicola, Martijn van Luipen, Kim Baeten, Leon Zwinderman, Arifah Arman, Lise Kleijn, Sjoerd Bastiaansen, Iman Hitli, Maxime van Ingen, Merel Huitink, Jeroen Beutler, Stefan Levels, George Gramsma, Nina Stefels, Marnix van Korlaar, Joep Berendsen, Patricia Assen, Tim Scheerder and Stefan Verschoor.
