Sustainable economic success fundamentally depends on recognizing required changes in time and implementing those effectively and efficiently.

I support owners, CEOs & CFOs as well as finance executives in identifying and dealing with changes related to business models, strategies and steering concepts enabling benefiting from business opportunities and mitigating risks.

In my professional career I initiated, managed and successfully completed a number of change projects creating value and resolving business challenges.
