Why goetzpartners

I met goetzpartners on a two-day recruiting event, called Gipfelstürmer, south of Garmisch, Germany. In addition to case studies and an outdoor challenge, I also had the opportunity to get to know the consultants more closely during a cozy evening in the hut – my future colleagues and I got on straight away. Therefore, after I received the offer of goetzpartners, I did not hesitate and gladly accepted the position.

MY MOST CHALLENGING PROJECT

Since joining goetzpartners, my focus has been on restructuring and transformation. In addition to the varied content-related challenges and the close cooperation with the C-Level of the customer, I especially appreciate the high relevance of the project's success for the overall corporate success of the client. In addition to various countries in Europe, the projects have also taken me to Central America, Asia and Africa. My biggest challenge in this context was the restructuring of a telco operator in West Africa, where we had to engage many stakeholders and quickly achieve results within a tight schedule.

BEYOND PROJECTS

Alongside my projects I am currently dedicating a lot of my time to my PhD. In alternating three-month phases, I am working as an external doctoral student at the Technical University of Munich with the research of ownership structures of multinational companies as well as their influence on the strategic company direction. In addition, I am part of the goetzpartners coaching team for Microsoft Excel and do recruiting interviews with our internship applicants.

MY PERSONAL BACKGROUND

After my dual bachelor’s degree program at BASF SE, I completed my master’s in management at the Leipzig Graduate School of Management (HHL) with a semester abroad in Australia. After several internships in consulting, my decision for goetzpartners quickly became clear, as I was convinced by the motivated and efficient colleagues as well as the large variety of projects.
