Industry and private equity

With over two decades of experience, I specialize in advising manufacturing companies and private equity firms on executive search and selection. At a time of significant challenges such as ensuring stable supply chains, pursuing decarbonization, and navigating geopolitical risks, the task goes far beyond simply filling C-level positions.

Driving change together
I will work on leadership organization with you to help the creative potential in your organization flourish and to successfully manage change with the right leadership in place. As a co-founder of the Renewable Energy Hamburg Cluster (EEHH) and a member of the German Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Association, I bring to the table my expertise in energy-intensive industries and green tech, along with an exclusive industry network.

People as a success factor
Highly skilled and effective management of portfolio companies is paramount for achieving investors' growth and return objectives. With a wealth of experience advising private equity firms, portfolio companies, and family offices, I specialize in identifying managers who drive growth within lean structures, fostering transparency, efficiency, and results orientation (e.g. management buy-ins). This includes supporting entrepreneurs in succession planning and helping to identify and develop the next generation of leaders inside and outside the company to ensure seamless transitions.

Personal background
Before moving into HR consulting, I trained as an aircraft engineer at Airbus and studied business administration. I first applied this combination of technical and business understanding for six years in an executive search consultancy, focusing on engineering companies and international technology groups. I joined GET AHEAD in 2004 and became Managing Partner in 2006. As a member of the Executive Committee of Friisberg & Partners International, I am responsible for the cooperation of 200 search experts at over 30 locations in 20 countries within our group.
