Senior Manager, BASF Management Consulting
I joined BASF Management Consulting at the beginning of 2013. I manage complex integration and carve-out projects and advise the business areas on all matters related to integration and divestment. Within these projects, I am also responsible for my team colleagues’ further development. Together with those responsible for Mergers & Acquisitions (M&A) in the functional areas at BASF, I strive to constantly improve Post-Merger Integration (PMI) processes and methods.
BASF has very diverse business areas and highly varied products. In every one of my projects up to now, I have collaborated with a different business area – and in some cases with several areas at the same time. Each project is different and poses its own very specific challenges. That makes my work absolutely fascinating.
The topics we deal with are highly demanding and varied. In my day-to-day work, I can put my knowledge and experience to very good use. In addition, I have built up a very large network at BASF. This is supported very intensively by BASF. Of course, there is also a wide variety of opportunities for personal development in the course of projects or within the company.
We are part of the “Corporate Development” division, work very closely with our strategy as well as M&A colleagues. Our unit is tasked with the most important projects at BASF. In addition, BASF is very international, and I work with colleagues from many different parts of the world every day. BASF has a very strong culture of appreciation. This is very important to me personally.
After completing my training in the banking sector and gaining a degree in business administration, I worked for a few years at a start-up company in the United States. I then entered the Mergers & Acquisitions area at a financial investment company. In my subsequent position in Corporate Development at a different company, I had the opportunity to be actively involved in the development and internationalization of the company and gain a great deal of experience working on strategy and corporate M&A projects.
I spend my free time with family and friends and I like to do sports.
