This summer we had the pleasure to announce the addition of 4 new partners to our partner group. Bas Kemme, Erik Berden, Ralph Maenen and Leon de Looff will bring with them decades of strategy consultancy experience and a fresh view on the ever more ambitious outlook of SparkOptimus. Though gaining 4 fresh sets of eyes to look forward from outside SparkOptimus, the partner group has decided that it requires 2 sets of eyes from the inside as well.
On July 20th, we were happy to celebrate the well-deserved promotions of Jonathan Joubert and Frieda van Belle to partners at our Friday drinks accompanied by words from managing partner Alexandra Jankovich and partners Jur Gaarlandt and Joris Hulst, cake and a great party afterwards.
Jonathan and Frieda joined SparkOptimus in February and December 2016 respectively as associate partners. Prior to joining the office, both started their career at McKinsey & Company. At SparkOptimus Jonathan and Frieda managed projects for a wide range of companies and did so with ever a smile on their face and enthusiasm. These trades characterize them and allowed them to energize both their teams and clients to always take projects to a successful ending.
We are thankful that Jonathan and Frieda will help us take SparkOptimus to the next level as partners and reach our ambitions using their extensive knowledge about our culture, people, projects and processes. We have no doubt that our clients agree.
