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.”

Projective provides a tailored made suit

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.

Rapid growth sees Quantum Advisory promote trio of partners

18 April 2019 Consultancy.uk

Three senior level consultants have been boosted to the rank of Partner at Quantum Advisory, as the firm works to meet heightened levels of client demand. Aled Edwards, Amanda Burdge and Chris Heirene become Partners as long-time Quantum member Rob Davies retires in May after 15 years as a Partner at the firm.

Founded in 2000, Quantum Advisory provides pension and employee benefits services to employers, scheme trustees and members, with five offices across the UK. The firm has enjoyed exponential growth in recent years, following a number of major client wins and booming demand for its services. It opened a new office in Bristol in 2016 to service the South West and in 2017 relocated its Cardiff office to a larger site within the Welsh capital to house the increased workforce. More recently, Quantum relocated its Amersham, Birmingham and London offices to more spacious premises in the centre of both cities to cope with demand.

The financial services consultancy, which employs 115 people across the UK, has promoted three senior team members to Partner, as part of its wider growth plans. The firm has moved Aled Edwards from Principal Consultant & Actuary, while Amanda Burdge has ascended from Principal Investment Consultant. Chris Heirene, former IT Manager, has also joined the ten current Partners at Quantum.

Aled Edwards most recently managed the actuarial team within Quantum’s Cardiff office as well as providing technical training for all staff. He boasts more than 17 years of pensions experience. He started his career as an Actuary at Jardine Lloyd Thompson’s Bristol wing, before joining Quantum in 2011. Edwards is also the President of the Welsh Actuarial Society (WAS), which supports actuaries and actuarial students living or working in Wales.

Amanda Burdge joined Quantum’s team in 2001, as one of the fledgling firm’s first employees. Most recently she was a Principal Investment Consultant with the firm, and with more than a quarter of a century’s experience in the sector, she is responsible for providing investment advice to many of Quantum’s key clients with both defined benefit and defined contribution schemes. Prior to her time with Quantum, Burdge spent two years as a consultant with SBJ Benefit Consultants (now Capita), and three years with Tesco Pension Trustees. She currently sits on the Regulation Committee for the Pensions Management Institute.

Chris Heirene initially worked with Quantum as an IT Consultant with Teamwork Technology Services and then UES for over five years, before finally joining the firm itself in 2011. He is now responsible for Quantum’s IT systems across all of its offices, including the network and core server infrastructure which supports the business. Heirene is heavily involved in utilising IT to improve and build upon the processes in place throughout Quantum.

David Deidun, Partner at Quantum Advisory, said of the promotions, “This is a very exciting time for Quantum. The recent round of promotions fully recognise the hard work and dedication shown by the three, all of whom go above and beyond for the company. I’ve no doubt that Aled, Amanda and Chris will settle into their new roles with ease and look forward to working together to grow Quantum even further.”

The news comes as Rob Davies retires in May, after spending fifteen years as a Partner at Quantum. A qualified actuary, Davies was instrumental in setting up Quantum’s Investment Division, specialising in aiding clients with their investment strategies. He will remain with the company on a part-time consultancy basis, while working with several clients in the Fiduciary Manager area.
