Valcon and First Consulting create new North-West European consulting organisation
Valcon is now merged with First Consulting. With the private equity fund Waterland as majority shareholder, they are expecting to extend with one or two companies a year.
A new journey
At Valcon a new journey has begun as they are being merged with the Dutch consulting house First Consulting - a new chapter, that for Valcon will open up a lot of great opportunities.
- Valcon will continue to be the same Valcon. The same people and the same brand. But in the light of the merge with First Consulting, we will have the ability to achieve more great knowledge and experience in the digital and international area. Furthermore, greater competencies, elaborates Partner Poul Skadhede.
Both Valcon and First Consulting will, therefore, continue as their own brands.
Increased scale and capability across northern Europe
Even though it will being business as usual in the two consulting houses, one of the differences is that the clients within both Valcon and First Consulting now will have direct access to more competencies in general. Hence, the two consulting houses combined will be able to offer an increased scale and capability across Northern Europe.
Whereas Valcon is in charge of the Scandinavian market, First Consulting is in charge of the Dutch market. Mr. Jessen and Mr. Hjortlund hope to expand their markets to Germany and the United Kingdom as well.
