After thirteen years of enriching work experience in one of Germany‘s biggest banking corporations, Dresdner Bank AG, having dealt with a considerable variety of topics, departments, assignments and responsibilities I have decided to concentrate on an area I have gotten to know especially profoundly: change in financial industry.


It were the numerous structural changes within Dresdner Bank, so typical of the financial world of our times, that have brought me in touch with and eventually to the head of several major change projects. I have experienced  the far-reaching transition process after the acquisition of Dresdner Bank by Allianz AG first hand and was involved in the meticulous planning process for a broad range of projects and departments.


Shortly afterwards I was given the project responsibility of closing the activities of a direct banking subsidiary and the migration of its clients and accounts to Dresdner Bank.


My next task was the restructuring process of a Private Banking subsidiary in Munich. Following these projects I was offered several management positions within Dresdner Bank Headquarters in Frankfurt, which I held until 2010. These positions, including Head of Business Development Private & Corporate Clients, Head of Quality & Performance Management, Divisional Chief Operating Officer, Head of Vendor Management & Settlements, as well as Member of the Executive Committee Private & Corporate Clients, provided me with experience in line management, personnel management and communication within a corporation, through all hierarchy levels.


2010 I decided to specialize in this field that I am so familiar with and support others with knowledge from comparable situations, generating true value added. My experience as line manager has additionally positioned me to very well understand the problems and daily challenges line managers are experiencing - including budget constraints, deadlines, reporting duties, approval procedures and personnel concerns - and to act as sparring partner and your reliable support, or as interim manager, in these demanding situations.


Finally, I welcome the opportunity to work on international projects and in multicultural environments: my recently completed assignment as project leader in a change management project for a major European bank involved two big companies and team members from several countries.
