Leader of Navigant’s global Energy practice recognized on inaugural list for excellence in connecting with clients and colleagues across geographic borders
CHICAGO – Oct. 19, 2017 – Navigant (NYSE: NCI) today announced that Jan Vrins, managing director and leader of Navigant’s global Energy practice, has been recognized as one of Consulting magazine’s Global Leaders in Consulting. Vrins is one of 20 inaugural honorees recognized for outstanding leadership qualities and the ability to exert influence firmwide, with clients, and across the overall consulting profession.
“I am proud to lead Navigant’s global Energy team that brings the best of Navigant to our clients on a daily basis,” Vrins said. “We are at the forefront of the global energy transformation, and our team is committed to the success of our clients.”
With more than 25 years of consulting experience, and energy industry leadership roles across North America, South America, Europe, and the Middle East, Vrins has a history of growing businesses in diverse, international markets. As a respected thought leader and the leader of Navigant’s Energy practice, he oversees more than 600 management consultants globally, providing services that help clients navigate the energy transformation.
In late 2016, following Navigant’s acquisition of Ecofys, an international energy and sustainability consultancy, Vrins continued to cement the practice’s global footprint by working to join two world-class consulting teams into a broader force that now provides a truly worldwide perspective to utility, government, and industry clients.
“Jan’s industry and practice leadership resonates with clients and employees around the world,” said Lee Spirer, Navigant’s executive vice president and chief growth and transformation officer. “He has built a team with a keen point of view on the impact of the energy transformation in different markets. Jan is committed to ensuring Navigant’s clients understand their unique position and partnering with them to capture value in an evolving energy landscape.”
Vrins, one of 150 nominees, will be featured in the January issue of Consulting magazine and will be formally recognized at an awards dinner on Dec. 7 in London.
“The Global Leaders in Consulting are making a global impact on their firms, their clients, and the entire profession,” said Joseph Kornik, publisher and editor-in-chief of Consulting magazine. “The winners are worldwide leaders and we’re thrilled to be able to shine a light on their accomplishments and achievements.”
