Dirk Meißner
Managing Partner

„Good consulting results can only be achieved

together as a team."

Dirk founded CO Improve in 2012 with the clear vision of combining specialist and consulting expertise with sustainable change management in order to achieve substantially better consulting results. From the very beginning, the consulting professional has focused on a corporate culture in which shared values such as appreciation, trust, fairness and performance orientation are extremely important – this is what the CO Improve team unites and what customers experience in consulting projects. The emergence of agile methods and leadership was an ideal match with the positive attitude to people at CO Improve. Today, CO Improve consulting is considered an agile organization.

In line with his own professional experience and personal interests, he has positioned CO Improve as a consulting boutique for holistic R&D management in manufacturing industries. As a customer, you will benefit from this clear focus and professional change management resulting in - "irreversibly good" results.

Dirk puts structure into complex situations, keeps an eye on the customers objectives and reliably delivers on time. He is an passionate road and mountain bike rider, for whom a 6-day ride across the Alps is not torture but a welcome relaxation. With his first business novel "Reifegrad 3" published in 2017 he proved that innovative R&D management can also be entertaining.
