Let's connect to drive your Procurement Excellence!
Geopolitical challenges, COVID-19, climate change, digitalization, increasing supply chain risks - uncertainties and volatility characterize the environment mid-sized, globally active companies face today, calling for a Procurement organization that is proactive, agile, strategic and impact-driven. I support CPOs and Procurement leaders not only to derive strategies to address these challenges, but to successfully drive implementation. For doing this, I bring more than 15 years experience in Procurement & Strategy to the table, gained while working for example for McKinsey & Company, BMW & Deloitte as well as various mid-sized industrial clients.

I am also used to collaborate with top management up to the CEO & CFO level in global companies.

Respectful & trustful collaboration: As an independent consultant I build trustful relationships with your Procurement teams, collaborating across functions, cultures and countries.
Hands-on implementation: After having derived concepts, strategic roadmaps and transformation goals during workshops and based on interviews, I drive hands-on, successful implementation: whether we address category strategies or crucial sourcing projects or a global re-organization I have proved in the past to create real impact fast.
Innovative Change Management: For many years I have driven global, company-wide strategic initiatives requiring mindset & behavioral changes to be successful . I always include this expertise in my daily work to ensure that lasting impact is created.
