Dussen – Expert for Operations und Leadership

Vita

After successfully completing my studies in industrial engineering in Karlsruhe and Grenoble in 2004, my expectations of the attractiveness of a job in the automotive industry were quickly disappointed and the German Mittelstand attracted my interest. The focus on medium-sized businesses and family businesses coupled with the exciting field of active turnaround management (in addition to several fellow students who had already worked for Struktur Management Partner) convinced me to join Struktur Management Partner in 2005.

A good decision, which led to the admission into the partnership at Struktur Management Partner in 2010. Today I am mainly responsible for implementation projects with active management support by Struktur Management Partner, if necessary in the role of CFO or CRO.

Internally, I am responsible for Operations and Interim Management together with Marc-René Faerber.

Focus

  • Design and implementation of turnaround programs
  • Responsible operational management of turnaround programs (CFO / CRO / general power of attorney)
  • CompetenceCentre Operations
