What drew me to Ascend was the firm’s reputation for excellence and its unique culture
Get to know Sebastian Eidhall
My consulting journey began as a student, where I discovered the diverse and challenging nature of the field. I later joined a trainee program at another consultancy firm, where I learned much from the many different courses offered. During this time, I also got to experience the first company merger of my career, which gave me valuable insight into the transformative change that consultants often inspire in their clients. After 1.5 years, I decided to join Ascend.
What drew me to Ascend was the firm’s reputation for excellence and its unique culture. I felt an immediate sense of belonging, and the atmosphere was always energizing. One thing that makes Ascend stand out to me is our strong focus on Fun, Inclusive, and Exceptional in everything we do. Whether it’s organizing wine tastings or developing the next up-and-coming business area, we always strive to be our best.
Since joining Ascend, I’ve been able to work on a range of exciting projects, including helping to build a sizeable Nordic bank’s management information reporting capabilities. I’m proud of the work we’ve done to help our clients tackle financial crime and stay ahead of evolving regulations.
I’ve also had the opportunity to build up our partnership with Detecon, an international consultancy within tech and telecommunications. Together, we’ve sharpened our mutual capabilities and opened up new opportunities for collaboration. I love working with other talented consultants and finding ways to complement each other’s strengths.
In 2022, I got to experience the second purchase of my career and we transformed into Knowit Ascend. This is an exciting opportunity to strengthen our partnership network even further and pursue new areas of growth.
