this is Christoph's purpose. The strategist, innovator and unshakable problem solver has experienced uncountable managers and situations. His realization: not endless meetings, unnecessary complications or hasty actions lead to results but oversight and clarity about the relevant topics, courage to conscious decisions and consequent focus. In our complex world, we need practice in dealing with uncertainty to achieve a sustainable future.
An excellent connoisseur of human nature, Christoph combines the knowledge of a practitioner and leader with many years in operations with the views of an independent advisor in medium sized companies and global groups as well as with the experiences of a digital start-up entrepreneur. This makes him extraordinarily versatile.
Christoph assumes internal and external management and consulting mandates preventatively and in crisis situations.
Since 2001, many times he has formed transformation and shaped successful structures. Using his innovative methods, he has transformed Airbus into a chance and risk competent company and has developed a high-performance culture. With this he has built an important basis for the long-lasting positive development of Airbus. His methods enable to sharpen the focus for success and viability, strengthen decision making, realize great chances and avoid problems from arising.
