With more than a decade of management consulting experience, Hannes is known for the dedication and tenacity he brings to client projects.

Hannes has cross-continental expertise, having led global client projects in the US, Asia, and Europe. His background includes IT strategy, advanced analytics, as well as operations improvement, and quality management.

A lot of our work is at the forefront of manufacturing companies’ most critical challenges while facing great pressure to innovate and become more digitally-enabled, automated, productive, and resilient. It is our job to help them face these challenges and prepare them for a more competitive future.

Clients come to Hannes for his creativity in solving complex business challenges and his deep expertise in advanced operations and process optimization, product cost reduction, EBIT improvement, applied advanced analytics, and digital manufacturing. He has helped clients achieve fast and lasting impact across automotive, aerospace and defense, transportation, and manufacturing industries.

This work often leads clients to uncover efficiencies and achieve bottom-line impact.

Many people underestimate the power of being patiently ambitious. I find the most success when I embrace long-term thinking, while still being flexible enough to challenge myself day by day.

Hannes dedicates his leisure time to his wife, family, and friends. Together they enjoy running, biking, hiking, and scuba diving. He holds an Executive MBA from INSEAD, as well as a Master of Science in Business Administration with a focus on Technology Management from the University of Regensburg and Audencia, School of Management.
