Interim Manager and Consultant

Master degree in Management

Diplom Kaufmann (univ.)

To walk new paths, the appeal of the unknown, the task of swiftly figuring out one’s position within a new company as well as to take on challenging topics has since been fascinating and motivation to me.

To figure out individual solutions in the specific environment of the employing company is just as inspiring to me as the provided possibilities of digitalisation.

A company’s success in the realm of digital transformation depends greatly on the ability to imagine the business processes consequently digital and from the perspective of the end costumer.

The costumer’s additional benefit remains in focus! This is essential in view of the improvement and safeguarding of the company's competitive advantage.

The implementation of those improvements requires a distinct strategy, feasible roadmaps and most of all the mediation of an explicit goal to all stakeholders.
