The Benelux practice of Delta Capita has strengthened its partner team with Onno Bloemers. He joins the firm from Van Ameyde, where he was a Managing Consultant, responsible for, among others, the development of innovative business and IT concepts. In his new role, Bloemers is responsible for the firm’s Benelux insurance consulting practice.
Delta Capita is an independent boutique consultancy that specialises in providing business and technology consulting services to the financial services sector. The professional services firm has four focus areas; it provides management consultancy (Advisory); offers solutions for businesses (Solutions); provides execution capacity for the realisation of strategic and tactical transitions (Delivery); and provisions business process out-/offshoring solutions for knowledge-intensive processes (Managed Services).
In 2012 Delta Capita expanded from its London, UK base – the consultancy was founded in 2010 by three founding partners* – to the Benelux region, and since then the firm’s Dutch office has built up a growing track record with organisations in the banking sector. In addition to offices in London and Amsterdam, Delta Capita also has a hub in Singapore, one of Asia’ main financial capitals.
Building on its success in the Benelux banking market, as well as its growth ambition to mirror its UK footprint and portfolio, Delta Capita Benelux has set the ambition to expand its services into the insurance market. To realise this goal, the business advisory has brought Onno Bloemers on board, an experienced management consultant with over 20 years of experience in consulting and insurance. "With the addition of Onno we expand our field of expertise into the insurance industry, and we expect our footprint as a leading consulting firm to thereby further increase within the financial sector," says Tom Kastelein, Managing Partner of Delta Capita.
Bloemers studied Economics at the University of Groningen. After his military service he worked for several consulting firms including Accenture and Atos Consulting. Over the past two years he worked at insurer Van Ameyde, where, in the role of Managing Consultant, he served clients by providing them with strategic and operational advice. Additionally Bloemers co-authored a series of white papers, in which he argues that innovation and business model change is central to insurers. He is an expert in issues relating to strategy, innovation, new operating models and customer engagement.
“The insurance industry is preparing itself for dramatic changes. At the same time the playing field hasn’t become any less competitive – both regulators and clients have been constantly ramping up demands. At Delta Capita we want to work with distinctive propositions to increase our clients’ ability to change, through innovative concepts as well as through focused improvement on existing processes and IT,” says Bloemers.
*The founders of Delta Capita are Joe Channer, Bimal Umeria and Petri Arola.
