Personal Advisor to C-Level Executives.

As a former corporate strategy manager and direct report to a member of the management board, I do know your strategic and operational pain points in freight forwarding, logistics and automotive. I am a trusted advisor to C-level executive management positions with their leadership teams in the international holding and family owned business arena in Germany and Eurasia. Speed of execution and in-depth business understanding makes the difference.

Are you looking for a strategist with hands-on operational background, strong skills in change leadership, business development and execution? A "special resource" who has "survived" in a matrix organization, at the OEM customer frontline and on the corporate boardroom? Someone who will motivate your employees to lifelong learning with tangible enthusiasm for your all important digital industrialization?

Today, supply chain management is (geo-)strategic management and access on geo-strategic infrastructure. But above all, supply chain management is about enabling competitive advantages in the interaction of people, culture, technology, data and assets.
