Helping others grow is my passion. My approach is informed by my own leadership experience and by an extensive coaching training.
I’ve coached and advised executives up to C-suite level for 20 years. My clients cover many different industries, including steel, energy, automotive and consumer goods.
As a Managing Director and Senior Partner at the Boston Consulting Group (BCG) I have advised large corporations and private equity firms in value creation strategies. I was a member of the firm’s leadership team and globally responsible for the Operations & Industry 4.0 Practice, which during this period grew into BCG’s first ever billion dollar Practice.
I also leverage my experience from being an active BCG career development leader on committees for partner evaluation, as well as being the former head of BCG recruiting. I’ve learned about the power of investing in people.
Prior to BCG, I spent 8 years with Mannesmann AG in machinery and plant engineering. I held positions as a Project Director and Product Manager, was in charge of a business unit, took a leading role in a large reengineering program and introduced lean-production.
I earned a Dipl.-Ing. degree in aerospace engineering from the University of Braunschweig and Université de Bordeaux and have an MBA from ESCP in Paris.
I’m a graduate of the Mastered Executive Coaching Program of Meyler Campbell in London and a member of the Institute of Coaching (McLean/Harvard Medical School). I’m certified with the Worldwide Association of Business Coaches (WABC).
My family and I live near Düsseldorf. I recharge by reading books and playing the drums, often jazz. Regular meditation has been a source of energy for me for 15 years. I’m the co-founder of a global mindfulness network with more than 1000 members. This experience is also reflected in my coaching. For me it’s the “ZEN in KAI-ZEN”, the Japanese philosophy of continuous improvement, that informs my life and my way of thinking. I also write on this topic.
