Delivering Sustainable Change and Return On Investment
I am a Senior Executive Change Leader with extensive experience delivering transformative change to institutions in finance and insurance. My track-record includes successful strategy implementation through effective change governance and project portfolio management with direct impact on change agility and return on investment.
I am viewed as an integral partner to C-suite executives and senior leadership teams, enabling organizations to capture market opportunities through technology, process excellence, and culture change. I have been recognized for building and leading highly motivated teams that deliver superior business outcomes through organization-wide collaboration, commitment, and stakeholder engagement. My areas of expertise are:
Change Governance: Working with executives to create and execute the change agenda, and to rationalize strategic priorities, resource allocation, and benefits realization
Project Portfolio Management: Facilitating project selection, portfolio delivery and balancing, and value capture of the transformation agenda
Integration Management: Activating stakeholders across the matrix to ensure change is managed at organizational and employee level
Project Delivery: Implementing good practice, control frameworks, and resource management to ensure reliable delivery
Change Capability: Building and leading teams that plan and deliver transformative change
Previously, I was SVP Change Delivery with Hiscox, Global Head of Marsh's Program Management Office, Consulting Manager with Satori Consulting, Program Director with Reed Business Information, and Center of Excellence Leader with McKinsey & Company. I grew up near Frankfurt in Germany and have lived in New York City since 1998.
I hold an M.A. in Change Leadership/Organizational Psychology from Columbia University, an M.B.A. in Executive Management from Pace University, and a B.S. in Information Systems Management. I teach Project Risk and Quality Management and Disaster Recovery & Business Continuity Planning as a part-time instructor in New York University's School of Professional Studies.
