Boer & Croon Corporate Finance has advised the shareholders of VODW on the merger with EY. Under the name EY VODW, VODW’s 100 employees continue to provide consultancy services for strategic marketing, customer-oriented innovation and digital transformation. As a result, EY’s Dutch consulting practice is growing to more than 400 professionals with a turnover of approximately €70 million.

Barend van Doorn (Advisory Leader EY Netherlands): “VODW is a world-class party in the Benelux and together with us they are going to conquer the world. VODW’s consultants are at the top of the market and are recognised specialists in the field of customer-oriented innovation and digital transformation. The acquisition of VODW is an enrichment for EY and a logical next step in EY’s strategy to become the market leader in the field of digital transformation in the Netherlands.

The merger with this market leader underlines EY’s continuous focus on innovation.

For VODW, the EY network means new opportunities for growth. Patrick Ruijs, managing partner of VODW: “This step will help us to make the Netherlands even more customer-oriented and innovative. What we are doing well in a few countries we will soon be able to offer our customers all over the world. EY embraces our fast-moving, creative and entrepreneurial culture and we are going to share it with our new colleagues. Our consultants will continue to work from our premises in Leusden for the time being.
