Former PA Consulting and Cubiks partner Jan Kwint has been appointed as the CEO of HR consultancy LTP. Kwint, who already serves for two years as a board member at LTP, taking over the reign from Arjan Eleveld, who had led LTP for the past 16 years.
Jan Kwint has 25 years of experience in the consulting industry. He started his career in 1988 at Procter & Gamble, shortly after completing his MSc in Occupational Psychology at the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven (Belgium). After two years with the GMCG firm, he moved into consulting, working for the at the time named Price Waterhouse Coopers for two years (currently PwC). In 1993 he switched from the Big Four firm to PA Consulting Group, where he spent seven years. At PA he climbed the ranks, in his last role serving as partner, and worked from diverse locations around Europe, including the UK, the Netherlands and France.
In 2000 Kwint, with fellow PA advisor Rob Feltham, founded the HR- consultancy Cubiks. Under the eye of Kwint, Cubiks grew in renown within the industry and now has offices in 24 countries around the world. Having provided the strategic direction for more than a decade, primarily based in the UK, Kwint left the firm in 2011 choosing to return to the Netherlands to act as Executive Director for LTP Consulting. After roughly three years in the role, he has now been nominated to take over the CEO position from Arjan Eleveld, who had held the title for 16 years and will now focus on developing the newly founded Jonathan Warner*.
Kwint has been tasked with executing LTP’s new strategy, bringing to bear his past experience with the aim of growing LTP from its core business to becoming leaders in assessment, as well as personal and team development. His secondary aim will be to develop LTP’s international profile with a strong online presence. The future is positive, remarks Kwint: “LTP distinguishes itself from the competition through the dual competencies of having consulting psychologists and the innovative power of its psychometics and developers. The combined competency allows us to, among other things, in-house develop online assessments and business games as well offer data-analysis to clients.”
LTP consulting is specialised in leadership assessment as well as other online assessment solutions for clients. It has 120 employees working from offices in the Netherlands, with its partner network spanning 15 countries. At the end of 2014 LTP was named the best Human Resource consulting firm in the Netherlands by Management Team, a local business magazine.
* In November last year LTP spun off its leadership and governance division into a new firm: Jonathan Warner. The firm is run by Arjan Eleveld, who is the principal shareholder.
