After founding and globally leading the CFO practice at BCG (9 years as Partner, 19 years altogether) and then joining McKinsey to push the CFO service line (4 years as Partner), I work now as an independent CFO Advisor to help building “The Future of Finance”. This can cover the overall role definition, strategy, organization, and processes, and it can include investor strategy, portfolio management, strategic/scenario/operative planning and (predictive) forecasting, KPI’s and value drivers, reporting, and incentive systems; everything with the opportunities “Digital Finance” can offer.

Being independent, I have the privilege and luxury to work with ambitious CFO’s and their teams where I feel I can help to make a difference and create real impact.

After finishing a 1-year training program I work now as End-of-life and hospice companion for the terminally ill on a voluntary basis at „Hospizdienst DaSein e.V.“ (in German: "Hospiz- und Sterbebegleiter"):

In addition, I work on a voluntary basis for StartSocial e.V. which is a McKinsey-initiated nationwide competition in Germany to support social and non-profit organisations. I work as juror to help select 100 initiatives for 4-month consulting and coaching support, and after after that I work with one selected social initiative on their specific questions, challenges, and development needs.
