Lukas Zyla

Associate, Transformation & Development

My Job as Inhouse Consultant:

Since October 2016 I have been working on highly prioritized projects at HypoVereinsbank as a member of our consulting team. The spectrum of my tasks ranges from the strategy development to the supervising of the implementation. Currently, my focus is on the introduction of a new operating model of Unternehmer Bank in context of the multi-year plan.
In addition to my role in the project, I am involved in topics related to the recruiting process. Among other things this includes the conceptualization of our communication channels and the representation of T&D at various career events.

My daily challenges:

The banking industry faces many important challenges. Consequently, the projects with which we are commissioned by HVB’s top management are diverse.
We support the organization with a mix of banking know how and expertise in relevant business functions, such as Restructuring and Regulatory.
Methodological competencies, such as structured project management and the use of strategy frameworks serve as the foundation for each of our projects.

Why I like to work as Inhouse Consultant:

At T&D, I can work with smart personalities on important projects and not only shape the future of the bank, but also continuously expand my competencies and areas of responsibility.
This combination makes internal consulting at T&D unique.

What I like most about being an Inhouse Consultant:

The entire banking sector is changing. We operate in a market with growing competition, disruptive innovations and demanding regulatory requirements. This makes it an exciting challenge for me to actively shape the transformation and development of our company.

My life before joining the Inhouse Consultancy:

Prior to my career at T&D, I completed the management trainee program at a Munich-based communications group. I worked in the New Business, Marketing Consulting, and Personal Consulting divisions primarily serving customers in the automotive and consumer goods sectors. In addition to enhancing my project management competence, I had the opportunity to gain first experience in working with the top management, which to this day enriches my skill set as a T&D consultant.

What I like to do in my spare time:

On the weekend I often exchange the business suit with the Wetsuite to surf on the Eisbach in the English garden. With the remaining power I engage in functional training with colleagues several times a week. Like many of my T&D colleagues, I also continue educating on business topics in my free time. In course of my MBA at the WFI, I gain further professional input and get new perspectives on career issues in exchange with fellow students from other industries.
