Advisory firm Eden McCallum Netherlands founded

04 February 2008

Eden McCallum opened its first international office in the Netherlands. Managing Partners van Eden McCallum, Heleen Wachters and Marjon Wanders, are both former McKinsey & Company- consultants. The Dutch office will further contribute to the expansion of Eden McCallum and will provide customers with strategy consulting and management consulting services.

The office of Eden McCallum in the Netherlands is situated at the Gustav Mahler square in Amsterdam (capital of the Netherlands).


Eden McCallum was founded in the year 2000 by McKinsey & Company-alumni Liann Eden and Dena McCallum. These two women decided to found their own advisory firm, thereby making an end to the demanding consultancy lifestyle. “We wanted to continue with our profession, but at the same time spending less time on travelling while spending more time with family”, said co-founder Liann Eden at the time. The advisory firm has matured to a network of over hundred freelance consultants. The large majority of them are alumni at one of the three large strategic advisory firms (McKinsey, Boston Consulting Group and Bain). Eden McCallum’s competitive advantage lies in the fact that it delivers top class consultants that charge much lower hour tariffs.
