Set to open on October 2, Oliver James Belgium is the latest addition to our thriving international network.

Having already laid the foundations within this market, a team of seven experienced consultants will be relocating to further the Oliver James footprint in Belgium. The office and region will be headed up by Thomas Sassi, who joined the Amsterdam team in 2015 and progressed quickly to become the Associate Director responsible for Belgium and Luxembourg.

Considering this move in context, Thomas comments “The last few years have demonstrated clear demand in the Belgian market, and we have responded masterfully, building a network of over 70 contractors in the financial services space alone. We view Belgium as a strategic growth market, where a local approach achieves the best results. In opening this office, our team will be able to forge new and even stronger relationships with contacts across the region.”

Situated at the heart of the Financial District – and right next to the Brussels Luxembourg station – Oliver James Belgium will serve as a springboard into neighbouring Luxembourg, where Thomas sees serious potential for diversification. For now, the team will stay close to home, diligently extending its reach in the Change & Project Management, Risk and Actuarial sectors. They will also build a fully fledged technology remit, off the back of recent success in transformation, change and project consulting assignments.

So, what does the future look like for Oliver James Belgium? With Thomas planning to grow the headcount to 30 by 2020, it is sure to be one of untold opportunity in the Benelux region.
