Since 2009 I have been consulting management and shareholders of automotive businesses in the service industries. My main focus is on:
Process Optimisation and Digitisation
Analysis of the organisation and processes, Recommendation and reconcilliation of measures. Implementation of systems in alignment with company processes and/or other measures. Steering and monitoring of the business transformation as project manager.
To develop strategies together and refine them, to determine factors for success, to work out steps/actions and to implement them together with the best of your staff and in doing so to take along the entire workforce.
Development of new business areas and subsidiaries
Organic growth and expansion of your range of clients and services, which ties many internal resources! I start the new business for you, look for a successor and /incorporate them.
When things get complicated and some parts of the business weaken, an unclouded look from outside often helps to make the right decisions. I analyze and plan the turn-around for you; I also support the implementation or implement it myself as Interim Manager.
Member of your Advisory Board
Benefit from the strategic support of a management consultant in your Advisory Board. As an experienced consultant, who knows you very well, I can minimize the risk of important business decisions for you and at the same time increase the success of your company in the long run.
Realizing inorganic growth of your range of clients and services - there are additional methods to the Big 4 of consulting firms. With instinct and dexterity I look for possible acquisition targets, analyze and assess for you and also establish contact between you and interesting targets.
