Before joining goetzpartners, I worked for one of the big consultancies. While working there, it didn’t take me long to realize that consulting itself was exactly my thing, but that I wanted to work a little differently: I wanted to take on more responsibility and have greater freedom and flexibility in my own work. That’s how I ended up at goetzpartners, because here junior colleagues can do exactly that. The company has a very lively entrepreneurial spirit, which gives junior colleagues in particular many opportunities to get involved in both client projects and the further development of their own company.
As I work in the private equity practice at goetzpartners, my projects are usually of short duration, have a lot of time pressure, and involve a wide variety of industries. As a result, each project is very challenging in its own way in a very short period of time I have to dig deep, identify the specifics and context of the industry, and make recommendations. I like this way of working as I find it very diversified and intellectually enriching.
goetzpartners offers many different opportunities to get involved that go beyond project work. For example, as a member of the “Industrials” industry group, I support the preparation of market studies, trend and position papers and surveys, which gives me the opportunity to develop professionally.
I also mentor our interns and am involved in recruiting our junior colleagues. In addition to the technical aspects, the interpersonal relationships often play an important role here, which I find very exciting.
I earned my bachelor’s degree in economics and finance at Goethe University in Frankfurt. During my studies, I spent an exchange year at the University of Birmingham (UK). I used the time after my graduation for internships in management consulting and investment banking, as I was not yet 100% sure in which direction I wanted to go. Especially in direct comparison, my vote was clearly in favor of management consulting, and I decided to join goetzpartners directly to to gain professional experience before continuing my studies. goetzpartners offers a comprehensive training and development program, so that later I can get my MBA with financial and other support, which I am currently planning to do.
