Loves brings some 25 years of experience in the consulting industry to the firm, with extensive expertise in the financial services landscape. His track record includes helping top tier banks with target operating model definition and implementation, supporting financial institutions with post-merger integration processes and business – IT transformation programmes.

Before joining BearingPoint, Loves held several advisory and independent director roles, as well as a serving as a start-up mentor and “spending more time with my family”, he admitted, following a long consecutive spell at Synechron (and predecessor Double Effect) and IBM Consulting (and predecessor PwC Consulting).

“After graduating in Industrial Engineering, I initially joined PwC as a consultant, and after a number of engagements across sectors, I joined the firm’s Financial Services practice – and never left that industry,” he recalled.

In the early 2000s, Loves joined the founding team of Double Effect, a Dutch management consultancy that “after an incredible 15-year journey” was acquired by Synechron. At the financial services giant, Loves initially was responsible for the consulting activities in the Netherlands, and later on served as the company’s managing director for the country.

“BearingPoint’s values match what I stand for: the intrinsic motivation to deliver excellence and innovative results for clients together with super ambitious and enthusiastic colleagues.”
