As a partner in Banking & Capital Markets in Berlin, I have been serving our largest clients in the GSA region for over 20 years across a wide range of tasks and disciplines.
Most of our clients are engaged in larger digital transformation programs in order to remain competitive by automating banking processes front2back to reduce costs and to reposition themselves for the use of future technologies in the important technical prerequisites. Only by creating these basics can the foundation for growth be laid.
As an account partner for our banking clients in GSA, it is important to me to bring together our special references and experience with the relevant contacts at our clients; the success of the digital transformation lies in product-independent consulting and thus in overcoming old decision-making silos at our clients.
In the first years of my career, I was able to gain a lot of experience in the responsibility of SAP implementations in banks. This experience covers the essential product areas of payment transactions, credit/loan and investment for both retail and corporate banking. As overall project manager for the start-up of a securities settlement bank and as overall project manager for an SAP transformation on the asset and liability side as well as the central functions at a mortgage bank, I was able to gain valuable insights into various product areas and in the management of large transformation projects.
The basis then, as now, is the changeover to new technologies and, at the same time, to new process flows. Current projects are dominated by integrated process automation using new technologies, which contributes significantly to reducing operational costs. Only those who reduce the gap to these new technologies (therefor the FinTechs) and choose a clever transformation strategy will create the necessary competitive conditions for profitable banking.
