Our commitment to the Nordic financial services sector

The financial services sector is a core focus for Valcon across Europe. We have a strong focus and dedication to the industry and are now expanding our practice in the Nordics. To lead this endeavour, we have made strategic new hires, reflecting our commitment to strengthening our presence and capabilities in the Nordic financial services sector.

Valcon, a prominent European consultancy specialising in technology, data and consulting, has made a significant commitment to expanding its presence and capabilities in the Nordic financial services sector. This expansion is driven by our dedication to the financial industry and our desire to strengthen our position in the Nordic region.

Valcon has a commendable track record in the financial services sector, with expertise in areas such as operational improvement, compliance, data management and digitalisation. We are known for our ability to remediate operational challenges, ensure compliance with evolving regulations and modernise digital foundations for clients.

With a team of around 2,000 skilled professionals scattered across Europe, including a specialised group of 500 experts exclusively focused on financial services, we possess the depth and breadth of knowledge required to address the distinct challenges faced by clients in this industry.

One notable addition to our team is Thomas Erichsen, a distinguished executive leader with a noteworthy background in prominent Danish companies. Thomas served as the Executive Vice President of Topdanmark, and he brings a wealth of experience and strategic insights to Valcon. In his new role as partner and the head of the financial services practice in Valcon Nordics, Thomas plays a pivotal role in spearheading the company’s strategic advancements in the Nordic financial services sector.

Geert van den Goor, Group CEO of Valcon, expressed his enthusiasm, stating that the addition of Thomas Erichsen underscores Valcon’s commitment to fortify our position and expand its capabilities within the Nordic financial services sector. Thomas’ unique skill set in strategic and operational oversight of IT, technology and development positions him perfectly to lead Valcon’s efforts in the region.

In addition to Thomas, we are welcoming Bjørn Büchmann-Slorup and Trine Baun to the financial services team, both of whom bring deep industry insights. Bjørn, former Senior Vice President at Danske Bank, specialises in driving commercial excellence and business development. Trine, an accomplished consultant with over two decades of experience, including a role as a partner at Deloitte, focuses on delivering business value through the adoption of new technologies.

The collective expertise and experience of Thomas Erichsen, Bjørn Büchmann-Slorup and Trine Baun significantly contribute to Valcon’s mission in the Nordic financial services sector.

In conclusion, Valcon’s strategic investment and key personnel additions are poised to make a substantial impact in the Nordic financial services sector, aiding clients in navigating the evolving financial landscape with innovative solutions and expertise.
