JBR 40 years: A moment to look ahead.

As we celebrate our 40th anniversary, we not only look back on our past accomplishments, but more importantly, we look forward to the future with optimism and determination. We are determined to continue our role as a trusted advisor and partner to our clients as we continue to strive for growth, innovation and success.

This anniversary is a milestone, taking us back to our humble beginnings in Rotterdam in 1984 and bringing us to the forefront of corporate finance and strategy consulting, now based in Zeist.

Our roots are in Rotterdam, where our founders, Jeltsma, van Biert and Randoe, laid the foundation for JBR in 1984. Only the B - of Kees van Biert - is still associated with JBR. Although our office has left Rotterdam since the early 1990s, our ties with the maritime and offshore sector remain as strong as ever.

At JBR, our customer is always our focus. We are not merely consultants; we are partners for life. With a global perspective and a keen eye for the key challenges facing our clients, we strive to identify concrete opportunities and achieve tangible results.

Success is something you celebrate together.

Our success comes from the strength of our people - a diverse group of experienced professionals and young talents who form the core of our company. At JBR, we embrace a culture of collaboration and continuous improvement, striving for excellence in everything we do.

Together with our employees and clients, we not only celebrate our past, but more importantly embrace the exciting opportunities the future holds. At JBR, we believe that our best days are still ahead of us.

In the anniversary year, we are organizing several events in which we will show and let you experience the future.
