SQ Consult B.V. and its holding company Sustainable Quality holding B.V. were founded in the city of Utrecht, the Netherlands, on 21 September 2009 by Sergio Ugarte, Monique Voogt and Laetitia Ouillet.
Coming from different backgrounds, the founding partners of SQ Consult shared a vision of independent consultancy based on quality and seniority. SQ Consult chose for a business model that preserves the independency of its international experts, yet feeling part of the same team. The reputation of SQ Consult’s partners and associates has contributed to quickly build up a solid international brand.
In July 2013, Laetitia Ouillet left SQ Consult to join the Dutch utility Eneco as its Corporate Strategy Director. SQ Consult is since then fully managed by its two founders and directors, Sergio Ugarte and Monique Voogt.
