Bain & Company appoints partners in Brussels and Amsterdam

27 January 2020 2 min. read

Global consulting firm Bain & Company has appointed four new partners in its Benelux division.

In Belgium, the promotions of Mathieu Dangotte, Caroline Grauwels and Laure Maddens has lifted the size of Bain’s Brussels partnership to twenty. 

Maddens has been with Bain & Company from the start of her career, having completed her Masters in Physical Engineering from the Université Libre de Bruxelles. During her 14 years at the consultancy, she has gained extensive experience with Commercial Excellence projects – customer/channel strategy, pricing/revenue growth management, business planning and key account management capability building – as well as strategy and large business transformations. 

The new partner is a member of Bain & Company’s Consumer Products practice. Likewise, Dangotte is a partner in the Consumer Products practice, and similarly, he ascended the ranks from the most junior level. After completing a summer internship at Bain & Company in 2006, Dangotte started his career at the firm one year later after obtaining his Master in Management diploma at Solvay Brussels School.

Caroline Grauwels has been with the strategy and management consulting firm since 2011, when she joined from consumer goods company Henkel. Prior to working as a Senior Brand Manager at the German multinational, Grauwels worked two years for BearingPoint.

The trio of partners join a group of eighteen other partners in Brussels, consolidating Bain & Company’s position as a leading strategic consultancy in Belgium. 

Meanwhile, in the Netherlands, Erik Pot has been admitted into the firm’s Amsterdam partnership. The 37-year-old has been serving the firm since 2010, after previously completing his PhD in Econometrics and Quantitative Economics and Master of Philosophy in Economics from Maastricht University. 

The Dutchman specialises in due diligence and post-integration work for private equity clients, with a focus on portfolio companies in the consumer products, retail and infrastructure sectors. Pot becomes the firm’s sixteenth partner in the Netherlands.

Last year, Bain & Company in the Netherlands – which is led by the Canadian Stephen Bertrand – added Berry Diepeveen (relocated from South Africa) and Kyle Weza (promoted internally) to its partner team.
