What's in a name

Lastman Consulting is based in Amsterdam, on the Pieter Lastmankade. The quay is named after Pieter Lastman (1583-1633), a Dutch painter in the Golden Age, best known as teacher to Rembrandt.

In addition, a 'lastman' in Dutch is a person who has accepted an assignment from a principal; precisely what Lastman Consulting does.

Finally, the last man on the football pitch is charged with helping the goalkeeper defend the goal against opponents. Similarly, Lastman Consulting helps business owners succeed in a competitive environment.
