Roland Berger has announced three partner promotions in its Benelux offices of Amsterdam and Brussels.

In the firm’s fast growing Dutch office, Frank Schrijver and Sjors van der Zee have been admitted into the partnership, taking the total number of partners in the Netherlands to thirteen. The office, which houses over 120 consultants and staff generating to the tune of €40 million in revenues, is led by Tijo Collot d'Escury, who also sits on Roland Berger’s global Board of Directors.

Schrijver joined Roland Berger in 2008 from ABN Amro, and not surprisingly focuses on the financial services industry. At the Dutch bank, he worked as a project manager on internal change initiatives, and latterly as a consultant supporting consultancy-related services to the Board on strategic topics.

Focused particularly on the banking segment within financial services, Schrijver supports the realisation of transformation programmes, including new operating models, performance improvement and end-to-end process digitalisation. The University of Groningen graduate also has extensive experience with post-merger integration and change management.Frank Schrijver, Sjors van der Zee, Gregoire Tondreau - Roland BergerSchrijver is joined in the partner team by Sjors van der Zee, who has been with the consulting firm from the very start of his professional career. After completing his masters in Actuarial Sciences and Econometrics at the University of Amsterdam, he joined Roland Berger in the summer of 2006 as a junior consultant. 

Over the past fourteen years, Van der Zee gained experience across a number of sectors, particularly in financial sectors with a focus on insurance companies, helping them with strategy, large-scale reorganisations, digitalisation, performance improvement, product management and innovation.

At the start of 2019, the Dutch office of Roland Berger promoted Casper Veenman and Erwin Douma to partner, and more recently, Koen Besteman and Sameer Mehta to partner.

Meanwhile, in Belgium, Roland Berger has promoted Grégoire Tondreau to senior partner. The 17-year veteran of the firm is now the Head of the Financial Services and Private Equity practices in Belgium and Luxembourg and a member of the Belgian management team. Prior to joining Roland Berger, Tondreau worked six years for Boston Consulting Group and Arthur Andersen Business Consulting.

The promotion comes three months after Roland Berger Belgium added Bart Deckers to its partnership.
