Global strategic consulting firm Bain & Company has welcomed back former Bainees to senior ranks within its Amsterdam office: Eske Scavenius (associate partner) and Judith Hoogendoorn (vice president).

Eske Scavenius is a familiar face for veteran Bainees in the Dutch team. He already worked for Bain & Company’s Amsterdam office between 2010 and 2012, and then went on to serve the firm’s offices in São Paulo and San Francisco for the next five years.

Over the past four years, he worked for Rubio Impact Ventures, an Amsterdam-based venture capital fund. In the role of Investment Director he led early stage investments in start-ups in areas such as food (Mosa Meat and Wakuli), health (Incision and SkinVision), and sustainable fashion (Fashion for Good and The Renewal Workshop).

“I had a great ride at Rubio over the past four years, leading nine investments with my colleagues. The time has come to move on. I am re-joining Bain & Company in Amsterdam. I'm super excited about this next step, through which I will continue to build out my understanding of what it takes to move the world forward through impact investments and entrepreneurship.”

At Bain & Company, Scavenius (36) is an Associate Partner in the Private Equity practice, where he will focus on working with venture capital clients. He will also contribute to Bain's work in impact investing, ESG, and the future of food.

Judith Hoogendoorn spent the early days of her career as a consultant at Bain & Company, working from the firm’s Amsterdam and San Francisco offices. She then moved to Unilever where she has developed an international career working in Rotterdam, Sydney and Brussels. She has held different positions in category management and marketing, most recent as a member of the Belgian leadership team.

Thirteen years on, Hoogendoorn (39) now returns to her first employer in the role of vice president for talent. In the role she will drive the people agenda together with the human resources team, with her remit including professional development, talent management, staffing, culture, and diversity, equity and inclusion.

Commenting on these appointments, Véronique Pauwels, Managing Partner of Bain’s Amsterdam office, said: “It’s a great pleasure that Eske and Judith have decided to return to Bain. They are both excellent at what they do, and I look forward to how they will both be further catalysts to our growth.”

US-headquartered Bain & Company has been based in Amsterdam since 1998. Today the office has established itself as one of the country’s leading strategic consultancies and, within Bain, the office enjoys a reputation as one of the network’s most international and diverse teams.
