Protiviti has opened a new office in The Netherlands. The office, located in Amsterdam, is led by Carl Messemaeckers van de Graaf and Carolina Wielinga. The two experienced former KPMG consultants are responsible for the furtherdevelopment of the Dutch practice.
Protiviti is a financial advisory firm specialized in risk consulting, financial advisory and IT consulting. The consulting firm has 1,500 consultants in 40 offices in North America, Europe, Asia and Australia.
Jonathan Burnett, responsible for all European operations at Protiviti:
"Following successful launches in France, Italy and Great Britain, we are convinced that the Dutch market offers huge growth potential for Protiviti.
As in other European countries, we see that many consulting firms in the Netherlands provide advice in the areas of risk management, but none of them are as independent, specialized and globally present as Protiviti. This is an important step in our international growth and our opportunities to support clients worldwide".
