Helping you succeed in tomorrow's world

The automotive industry is under very great pressure to transform. The classic processes no longer meet customer needs. Vehicles are also increasingly being demanded and traded online. That is why the trade will need to adapt and ideally respond to changed conditions, together with the manufacturers.

But it is not just dealer-manufacturer relationships that are facing huge changes; the entire business model is coming under pressure as fleet electrification increases, with traditional revenue streams eroding and new ones emerging.

With decades of expertise in this sector, I help dealerships, associations and manufacturers adapt their structures, processes and distribution systems to the new challenges and align themselves for the future.
