President & CEO
Lumics, our joint venture with McKinsey & Company (50%), is specialized in providing consultancy services for industrial manufacturing and production companies. The focus is on the optimization of complex production processes and the operational implementation in the aviation, automotive, energy, chemical and pharmaceutical industries.
Lumics combines analytical and practical knowledge in the best possible way. Alongside classical consultancy services, the new company also offers very practical support in the tangible improvement of various work processes and production processes. The Lumics personnel not only put together new production processes; they also manage and coordinate the entire change and implementation cycle through to the establishment phase.
In contrast to common practice in the consulting sector, the team consists not only of management consultants, but also of industrial master craftspersons and mechanics who previously worked directly on aircraft themselves. This increases credibility and effective persuasiveness on the shop floor, and the combination of an internal and an external perspective makes it easier to recognize, analyze and resolve certain types of problems.
