sales counselor referencesAs an independent management consultant, I have been successfully developing business areas, products, and people for over 10 years. With my network, I realize unique digital marketplaces, sales strategies and the necessary structures to achieve the goals set. As an independent consultant, interim manager and partner, the focus is on the optimal connection between product development and sales. My projects mainly take place in the areas of digitization, energy transition and industry 4.0. In particular, I combine the requirement to increase sales with the to-dos for the units controlling, product, SEO/SEA, UX/UI, HR and lead generation.

My heart beats in particular for the establishment and development of intelligent business online services and evaluation portals, whose vision is to create unique marketplaces and market transparency. Regardless of whether the monetization of the core business is based on

  • insertion models,
  • lead models or
  • revenue share models,

my goal is to generate the perfect added value along the entire customer journey, from the SERP snippet to the final conversion.

As a developer of scalable digital strategies, I am happy to create the optimal balance between product development, marketing and sales for my clients and partners.

My toolbox for efficient implementation is filled with many years of experience in corporate management, business area and product development, leading large sales teams and a reliable instinct for promising paths.
