About me

Hi there, I'm happy to introduce myself to you:

My passion is to take part in Digital Transformation and Innovation challenges and to be in charge of related change management processes. Digitization affects all industries, regardless of whether the business models are from old or new economy.

It is my firm belief that Digital Transformation begins with a willingness to change current mindsets. This means that it is necessary to understand the huge – attention: buzzword following – disruptional potential to realize Digital Transformation within (big) organizations. Each member of an organization needs to be convinced that Digital Transformation also means cultural change. It changes the way we think, how we collaborate, how we treat each other in hierachies, how we (should) build products; mostly driven by our customers: needless to say, they are changing their needs and buying behaviour resp. decision making processes, too.

Therefore, I devoted my entire career and university education to gain pertinent skills needed for those digital transformation challenges.

Who am I? An innovative, forward-thinking and determined digital evangelist, bold in leadership and socially adept. As a business/corporate strategist and (unconventional) thinker I can refer to years of experience in digital business. I have successfully realized more than 50 projects with Fortune Global 500s, companies listed on the German stock exchange (DAX30, MDAX and SDAX) as well as SMEs. Done so as a project leader and/or executive of strategic consulting companies.

Currently, I’m the CEO at TÜV Rheinland Consulting. Prior, I was the Head and Co-Founder of KPMG Digital Hub at KPMG where I was accountablw for driving forward the introversive Digital Transformation of the KPMG Financial Services business unit with approx. 2.500 employees. KPMG Digital Hub supports its clients regarding the strategic definition and operational implementation of their digital ambitions. It combines the know-how of KPMG’s business experts with KPMG’s digital technology solutions (such as KPMG Lighthouse) and the agile methods of KPMG Innovate to support clients to specifically master the challenges of Digital Transformation.

Together with a great team (Bernd Schumacher, Matthias Mayer and Hendrik Hertel) and many other great colleagues we tried to revolutionize digital consulting services within Financial Services industry.
It was great to be part of the leading Digital Transformation Consultancy (read more…)!

Prior, I was able found and build a start-up accelerator, named comdirect Start-up Garage, which supports a leading German retail bank to intensify and face its Digital Transformation challenges. As Founder and Head of the program I was responsible for the entire accelerator – greatly supported by Prof. Dr. Remigiusz Smolinski. We both had the idea and co-founded it and were able to leave a footprint in the German Banking environment.

As a proof of concept resp. acceptance within the Banking industry this project won the Banking Innovation Award 2016 as the most innovative business model. A prize awarded by bankenversicherungen.de and FRANKFURT EURO FINANCE. Read more here

Simultaneously, I was Managing Partner at the Digital Transformation strategy boutique BEAM Consulting GmbH. There, I successfully realized strategy projects for clients from interdisciplinary industries, e. g. Healthcare, Automotive, Financial Services or Industry Goods.

Besides my job, I am always eager to share my thoughts regarding Digital Transformation, Innovation and Strategy as a speaker, writer, colleague, consultant or a friend. So, if you share my passion for the digital thing I’d be happy to get in touch with you. Just shoot me an email or contact me via LinkedIn, Twitter and XING!
