Eden McCallum has welcomed a new partner in its Amsterdam office: Erik Berden.

Erik Berden brings more than fifteen years of experience in the consulting industry to Eden McCallum, a management consulting firm that delivers vetted teams of top-tier independent consultants at clients across sectors.

The past two years Berden was a partner at SparkOptimus, where he was responsible for clients in the consumer goods & retail sector, and the delivery of projects. Prior to that, he worked for Boston Consulting Group and Kearney (back then A.T. Kearney), where he focused on strategic engagements and transformations in the private equity and consumer goods & retail sectors.
