About Verwaijen Consulting

I am Robert Verwaijen (45), an enthusiastic financial professional who always rapidly gains confidence and trust among colleagues and clients. I have been working as a controller since 2000 and as a consultant since 2011. In my work, I like to structure, to finish what I start, and to create an harmonious atmosphere. My motto is:

"An agreement is an agreement"

Associates describe my personality as reliable, structured, accurate, communicative on all organisational levels, open, down-to-earth, honest, intelligent, solution oriented and analytic.

I successfully completed my Business Economics (Master) and Controlling (Post-Master) studies at Maastricht University. Both my Master and 'Executive Master of Finance and Control' (EMFC / RC) titles were obtained cum laude.

In 2000, I started my career as Assistant Group Controller at the global corporate headquarters of CSM NV, a listed company active in the food industry. After almost five years, I switched to the VION Food Group, one of the ten largest companies in The Netherlands at that moment.

At VION, I worked as Group Controller, then as Business Controller of two operating companies (NL and UK), and again on corporate level as Controller Accounting & Reporting. In the last-mentioned role, I developed a specialism regarding Oracle EPM / Hyperion tools and trained colleagues from all over the globe.

Early 2011, I joined Profource. As a senior consultant I could apply my passion, which lies on the intersection of controlling and the software tools mentioned, within various organisations. These assignments for clients were not my only role: I also helped establishing and positioning the newly formed team of controllers within Profource. As Lead Consultant, I was closely involved with managing and educating the team members, and with recruiting new colleagues.

In July 2016, I started my own venture as a consultant, which is named Verwaijen Consulting and based in Helmond, The Netherlands.


"I have worked with Robert closely over the last 2 years at Stryker on two projects, and I cannot say enough about how fortunate I feel to have had Robert on my team. Robert was instrumental in the successful launch of our Hyperion suite upgrade and played a leading, customer facing role during the project. Robert is a strong performer, excellent problem solver, and great communicator. He is very organized and proactively does things to make himself easy to manage and work with. Robert displays strong attention to detail, strong analysis capabilities, and is always willing to step in and volunteer to help the team when he senses a need. He also displays strong technical capabilities both over accounting/finance and Hyperion applications (HFM, FDMEE, and Hyperion Planning). I would strongly recommend Robert as a top tier consultant! Thanks again Robert, our project team could not have been as successful without you!"

Finance Director at Stryker

"I had the utmost pleasure of working with Robert on a couple of different projects, both involving Hyperion and supporting our user base of over 1,000 users. Robert's knowledge of HFM, FDMEE, and Financial Reporting played a critical role in us delivering our Hyperion project successfully and truly reflected in the number of users who complimented our whole team on the training and implementation phases that accompanied the global changes that were involved with our Hyperion upgrade. Robert is thorough in every aspect of his work and the project deliverables, and applies patience while working with the user community to help them learn and understand tough Hyperion concepts. I would be honored to work closely with Robert again on future Hyperion-related projects, and any other reporting related initiatives. His communication skills and thorough work habits are difficult to find and I know I can count on him to deliver with a high quality effort as a trusted partner!"
