Delivering Sustainable Change and Return On Investment
I am a senior executive with over 20 years experience delivering transformative change to institutions in finance, insurance, and media. My proven track-record includes successful strategy implementation with direct impact on change agility and return on investment. I am highly skilled in partnering with the C-suite and senior leadership teams to capture market opportunities through technology, process excellence, and culture change. I am also known for building and leading highly motivated teams that deliver superior business outcomes through organization-wide collaboration, commitment, and stakeholder engagement. I have a strong entrepreneurial skill set with a balanced approach to people, processes, and technology, focused on problem-solving and execution. My accomplishments include optimizing change management expenses, delivering complex change, and rationalizing project portfolio total-cost-of-ownership.
My specialty areas 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
Change Capability: Building and leading teams that plan and deliver change initiatives
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. In my free time, I teach Project Risk and Quality Management and Business Continuity Management in New York University's School of Professional Studies.
