Eden McCallum has added Wouter van Essenberg to its leadership team. Van Essenberg, who joins the consultancy from Ordina, has been appointed Associate Partner, and is based in Amsterdam.
Wouter van Essenberg was most recently a member of the executive committee at Ordina, an IT services provider that operates across the Benelux. At the technology firm, he held a number of senior management roles in marketing and portfolio management, as well as human resources. Previously he was a consultant with The Boston Consulting Group in Amsterdam, where he worked for six years, growing through the ranks from Consultant to Project Leader and most recently Principal. At the management consultancy, Van Essenberg had a particular focus on large change programmes, such as post-merger integration, reorganisation and business process redesign, concentrating mainly on clients within the telecoms, media and technology sector. He started his career in project management and marketing roles with KPN and Alcatel.
In his new role at Eden McCallum, Van Essenberg will leverage his combined consulting and managerial experience to support the firm’s clients with business transformation trajectories and organisational change. He joins the firm as an Associate Partner and will be based in Amsterdam, one of Eden McCallum’s three hubs in Europe. “Wouter’s hands-on experience in industry, paired with his deep knowledge of organisational change, will be invaluable to our clients, in TMT and beyond. We’re very happy to welcome him to the team”, comments Marjon Wanders, who co-leads Eden McCallum’s Benelux office.
“I’m excited to be joining such a strong and dynamic team, that has proven that the Eden McCallum way of working offers clients the value and flexibility that they are looking for”, reflects Van Essenberg on his move.
Other recent leadership additions for Eden McCallum include Barrie Berg (a former Booz Allen Hamilton partner), Leo Andronis (joined from A.T. Kearney) and Jan-Willem Weggemans (a BCG and Bain alumnus), all three based in London. Within the next 18 months the consultancy – renowned for its flexible business model targeted at the top-tier of industry – plans to cross the Atlantic and open an office in the US.
