Interim management and leadership

The drive and reliability of an interim manager

In dynamic markets, precise manoeuvrability in all situations is a crucial success factor. In some situations, however, the team might be lacking the right sounding board or the ideal leader to help it reach its ambitious goals. As an interim manager, I put my extensive management experience at your disposal, steering your teams to success while efficiently completing projects and specific tasks. For me, interim management is about drive: I take over at the helm when the ship encounters choppy waters and steer your company safely to its next destination.

Interim sales management

Leading your sales team with a clear focus

If sales of your products or services have not got off to the flying start that reflects either their potential or your expectations, you need an experienced partner with a fresh perspective, but one who is still on your level. As a sales manager, I lead your team and, as a key account manager, your customers, breathing new life into your sales and connecting with your target groups. As an interim manager, I focus on your goals and make the sale of your products and services my top priority.

Interim marketing management

Setting clear goals, realigning strategies, implementing measures with precision

Getting things right – and getting your message across – is imperative when it comes to driving the success of your products and services. Because when innovation, communication and positioning meet the right products and portfolio, it goes a long way to ensuring the strength of your sales. With my particular combination of management knowledge and experience concerning pain points, I understand your position perfectly. Having set clear goals in consultation with you, I develop suitable strategies and plans before putting into place the measures necessary to boost the sales and value added of your products and services. I will optimise the marketing mix, gear your product portfolio to your customers’ needs, reinvigorate your communication, set prices that are right for the market and provide powerful sales consultancy.

Innovation management

Continuously working on your innovations

Market and customer needs in relation to your products and services are changing all the time, with expectations increasing. We will only stay successful tomorrow if we keep providing new answers and solutions to meet these requirements. When I talk about ‘new ways of thinking’, I mean innovative thinking across the board. That’s what my philosophy is all about. Using tried-and-tested methods, processes and experiences, I transform tomorrow’s ideas into successful measures today and help you guide your company to a bright future.

Interim management, restructuring

Overcoming crises and keeping the ship on course

When existing structures reach their limits or companies/divisions find themselves at risk of losing their way in turbulent times, help is required. With the insights I have gleaned from crises successfully managed, the calm demeanour that comes from experience, and my skill in making the most of existing resources, I get your enterprise back on track with a raft of restructuring/reorganisation measures. As an interim manager, I am used to taking charge at critical moments. I am familiar with challenging situations and passionate about keeping your company on course, making it agile and supporting its rise.

Business consultancy

Creating opportunities, taking the company forward

I regard myself as a consultant, sounding board and equal partner whose sole motivation is to take your company forward. If consultancy is to be an effective tool, it has to be based on knowledge of the market and the various levels of value creation. Specialising in bespoke corporate development, I quickly take stock of the situation, address the problem directly and work with you to develop concrete and feasible approaches that deliver success and growth.
