Projective, a financial sector advisory specialised in project management, has appointed Corjan Mol as partner. Mol, with Piet Impens at his side, has been leading the Dutch branch of the firm since 2011. Their biggest challenge is to attract highly qualified staff to meet the growth objectives of the company, to meet Projective’s goal to double its size by 2017.
Corjan Mol (43) has more than 20 years’ experience in the area of management consulting, project- and programme management in the financial sector. He started his career at the Rabobank, before making his way into the consulting sector seven years later, coming to work for, among others, PwC, IBM and Double Effect*. During his career Mol developed keen insight into the processes involved in banking, asset management and insurance, with an expertise in operations, IT and change management. Mol led transformation projects for clients in Europe, Asia and the US.
In his new role as partner, Mol will with his colleague Piet Impens, be responsible for the strategy of Projective in the Netherlands. The ambitions are huge: by 2017 Projective is seeking to double in size. The firm’s growth ambitions are set to be made possible through expansion into new countries, as well as unlocking the further growth potential in the Dutch market.
“The market is changing rapidly. Our clients need to improve, against acceptable costs, their offerings and processes due to the pressure of continually changing legal and regulatory loads,” says Mol. "There is therefore a demand for qualified project and programme managers. Our clients opt for Projective precisely because of our extensive knowledge and experience. The challenge in our growth ambition is hence to attract highly qualified new colleagues with an adequate level of knowledge and experience that can help our clients quickly and effectively realise their ambitions.”
Mol adds: “We want to be known as the independent ‘provider of choice’ of the very best project- and programme managers in the financial sector in Europe and beyond. We are well on the way to realising our ambition.”
Projective was founded in 2008 and is a boutique consulting firm specialised in project management to the financial sector. The firm – which is active in the Netherlands, the UK and Belgium – works with leading players in her field, and has in recent years grown by double digits. Last month Projective welcomed its 106th employee globally.
* In June 2011 Mol was appointed Country Manager of Projective in the Netherlands.
