I gained my professional reputation as Engagement Manager at McKinsey & Company. At McKinsey, I built my expertise around strategic mergers and acquisitions, digital transformations, and new business models based on core technology. Besides the skill set of a strategy/management consultant, I have a profound understanding of several game changing technologies: Internet of Things (IoT), Blockchain and Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT), Industry 4.0, and Autonomous driving. I describe myself as a technologist at heart with a business mindset.
Prior to McKinsey I was a computer scientist and authored ~25 peer-reviewed conference and journal publications in the field of formal software verification. I held (visiting) scientist positions at NASA Ames Research Center and at RWTH Aachen University and received his PhD “sub auspiciis praesidentis” (under the patronage of the President of Austria) from Vienna University of Technology. Languages that I speak fluently are German, English, and Mandarin.
Having lived in China for about 3 years (studying Mandarin at Zhejiang University and working for Siemens) I enjoy to connect both worlds with each other in my work.
