Our Team

Ralf Schäfer

„Visions, concepts, process improvements –

any solution works easy on paper and in talks.

But without implementation, everything is useless."

Ralf advises clients based on his many years of experience in various leadership positions in product development and staff functions at global players - whether it is the implementation of strategic topics, the creation of global or local structures or simply projects - have to be brought back on track.

Working partners benefit from his ability to build bridges between a wide range of perspectives. From the board member to the production employee or from visionary marketing specialists to hardcore developers, the focus is always on the feasibility and the optimum for the customer. He is curious, highly interested in technology and has a faible for emotional products and people making them happen. Therefore, soft factors play a vital role in his consulting work.

The father of two teenage sons is an avid skier and motorcyclist. He also likes to combine these hobbies with his third passion – travelling. Whether exploring distant countries and cultures with his family and backpacks or a taking a leisure trip with the camper over the weekend, here or during a relaxing run he recharges his batteries and gains new ideas.
