I have a strong track record in strategizing and delivering digital products. In my years in the automotive industry, I served in various leadership roles and immersed myself in the struggles of agile transformation. As a VP Product, I led interdisciplinary teams of designers, product managers, and software engineers and founded and scaled a corporate startup from 20 to 220 employees. It was a fascinating journey and has sparked my passion for servant leadership in agile organizations.
This passion made me venture beyond my corporate career. I took a sabbatical, in which I engaged with over 100 leaders from C-level to staff level in various industries to understand the common challenges and unique context of people in their respective roles in the digital age.
Since 2017, I work as an executive coach and consultant. Together with five other industry veterans, I founded a boutique consultancy, which helps executives from OEMs, transit authorities, industry associations and SMEs in their strategic positioning in the digital mobility market.
As a coach, I partner with leaders individually, in groups and teams and feel humbled to serve them in their fascinating transformations. I specialize in working with leaders facing high uncertainty in their daily context. My interventions serve the challenges of Product Development and Innovation, Organizational Learning, Corporate Culture, Agile Transformation, Open Communication and Servant Leadership.
