Söderberg & Partners accelerates expansion in the Netherlands – Appoints Roland Goldman

Press release 2019-03-19

 

  • Swedish market leader in pension advice and corporate insurance services, Söderberg & Partners, has hired Mandema & Partners’ ex-CEO Roland Goldman to the Söderberg & Partners group in the Netherlands.
  • His role will be to further accelerate corporate insurance expansion in the Netherlands by recruiting more Dutch entrepreneurs to join the Söderberg & Partners group.

Söderberg & Partners, a Swedish and Nordic market leader in pension advice and corporate insurance services, entered the Dutch market in early 2017 through a partnership with employee benefits advisor Floreijn. The Dutch footprint then more than tripled in size when the pension consultant Montae later joined the group in early 2018.

Now, to further accelerate the expansion in the Netherlands, Söderberg & Partners has appointed Mandema & Partners’ ex-CEO Roland Goldman as Director of M&A and Franchise Development. Roland will together with his new Dutch and Nordic colleagues focus on recruiting more Dutch entrepreneurs to the Söderberg & Partners group in the Netherlands – through partnerships, joint ventures and acquisitions. Both to further expand the existing services, and to build a corporate risk insurance service line.

  • "I have followed Söderberg & Partners development from a distance since 2016 and I am impressed by the track-record of growth in the Nordics. The Dutch market is undergoing rapid consolidation and I see no stronger platform than Söderberg & Partners’ to take an active part in this development. I am glad to join a strong team within pension and employee benefits, and we will certainly attract more entrepreneurs adding other types of corporate insurance services. We are open for business", says Roland Goldman, new Director of M&A and Franchise Development, Söderberg & Partners Netherlands.

Roland Goldman, together with the founding members from Montae and Floreijn, will complete the core team of Söderberg & Partners Netherlands with his strong track-record also in risk insurance.

  • "I’m very pleased to have Roland joining us. He will make an excellent addition to our Söderberg & Partners team in the Netherlands, bringing more than 30 years of industry experience and insights to the table. We have high ambitions for Söderberg & Partners in the Netherlands and Roland will complete our team with his knowledge and skillset, paving way for accelerating our expansion and increasing our footprint in the market", says Gustaf Rentzhog, CEO and co-founder, Söderberg & Partners.

Söderberg & Partners in the Netherlands consist of Floreijn, Montae and the Söderberg & Partners Netherlands Services platform company. The latter provides technology and personal advice services to facilitate growth of the other Dutch Söderberg & Partners companies. The group is headquartered in Sweden and had more than EUR 350 million in turnover in 2018, including the Nordic operations. Söderberg & Partners is a founder-led business, controlled by Per-Olof Söderberg (Chairman and co-founder), Gustaf Rentzhog (CEO and co-founder) and other key founders as long-term shareholders.
