Catalant appoints Roeland Vertriest as President and Chief Commercial Officer

Catalant Technologies, the creator of Consulting 2.0 and the leader in on-demand access to the world’s best independent consultants and teams, is thrilled to announce the appointment of Roeland Vertriest as its new President, Chief Commercial Officer. This strategic addition to the leadership of Catalant underscores the company’s commitment to spearheading its next phase of growth and expanding access to alternatives to traditional consulting firms. This is on the back of a major change in the consulting industry, with leaders at the Fortune 500 and Private Equity firms looking for non-traditional teams of consultants that are better fit to purpose and bring a combination of operating and consulting expertise.

Roeland joins Catalant with a truly unique background. He has been a leader at McKinsey, an independent consultant on the Catalant platform, and most recently was the Chief Transformation Officer at DuPont, where he led a major 3-year transformation and leveraged non-traditional consulting services, delivering better and faster solutions while also realizing major savings for the company.

“The addition of Roeland to the team comes at a crucial time when more and more companies are turning to Catalant for strategic solutions that transcend conventional consulting teams,” said Pat Petitti, CEO of Catalant. “He shares our vision of providing executives with a new, non-traditional form of consulting and building a true community for the world’s best independent consultants and teams. His leadership will be invaluable as we respond to our client demand and evolve our offering while strengthening our leadership position in the category we created 10 years ago.”

Vertriest adds, “One of the things that excites me most about my journey with Catalant is that I so clearly see the need for executives to adopt Consulting 2.0. I was that executive, and along with many of my peers, sought new solutions to solve our most challenging problems. We’re in a unique moment in time where the consulting industry is at the precipice of major change. Catalant is perfectly positioned to capitalize on this moment and design the future of consulting, and I can’t wait to get started.”
