Rodig – Expert for digital transformation, the Internet of Things, business models and start-ups

Vita

During my time at university studying business administration, two of my five internships already led me to management consultancies – the steep learning curve, variety of topics and challenging tasks immediately inspired me. Since I wanted to work very close to actual implementation, I spent the first four years of my career in the internal consulting unit of a DAX-listed company. During this time, I helped set up a joint venture of numerous European companies in the field of renewable energies from day one as Interim COO. I then advised medium-sized companies in the areas of marketing, sales and business model innovation for a leading European strategy consultancy. Many of the companies were in phases of change. After a stint as interim CFO of a cloud start-up, I founded an IT service provider focusing on the Internet of Things / Industry 4.0 in 2012, which grew to 40 employees through self-financing. In my seven years as CEO of the company, I supported numerous medium-sized clients in the development of digital strategies, digital products and services, innovative business models, and the successful transformation of their organizations.
During this time, I also got to know and appreciate Struktur Management Partners for their effectiveness in successfully implementing business model transformations and joined the company as a partner in 2020.
