"Digital Transformation in enterprises to stay relevant is an underestimated challenge"
It doesn’t need more than a look on various industries to see that many companies that deliver a sustainable and digitally value proposition are the ones that make up a huge portion of the digital growth.
To remain relevant and drive sales in a fast changing digital global environment, companies must change fundamentally to be able to compete.
In fact, a necessary and new dynamic is building up in the digital transformation, since companies have to redefine themselves, design them to survive in a world in which traditional processes no longer work. Technological progress and its rapid acceptance by customers / consumers deserve a much higher digital priority for many companies in order to remain competitive in the future.
The digital transformation challenges I faced within enterprises seem like a repeating pattern. More than 20 years of digital experience helped me to develop a very broad insider “know-how” on the most relevant and necessary challenges these enterprises face when pushing their digital transformation projects forward.
I helped enterprises to adapt value proposition, customer experience, technology and operating processes to win the digital customer.

For about 22 years!
I started quite young in my small 2 rooms apartment when I was 20 years old.
The first part of my career started in 1996 when I worked for a huge marketing company in South Germany, where I got promoted to the Head Lead of the Business Development unit within 1 year. Since I discovered the Internet in the late 90’s I knew the time has come that will change the world and customer behaviours forever and it would the right time to choose the path of the digital era.
