Hello, I’m Christoph!
I develop digital business models as well as innovative brand and marketing strategies. I work with growth companies, strong brands, agencies and startups.
Curiosity and a deep passion for entrepreneurship and technology drive me to continuously improve not only myself, but also my clients’ strategies and processes, and to share new skills and technologies.
My particular strength is enabling teams to fully focus on achieving their brand’s goals with agile data-driven marketing strategies.
Consultant, brand strategist and project manager with a passion for solutions that create real added value, especially at the intersection of marketing and corporate development. Excellent combination of analytical and strategic brand know-how with innovative product marketing and start-up development methods. Entrepreneurial thinking and acting through own start-up expertise and as a manager in growth companies. Special focus on marketing efficiency and digital business models.
Holistic not isolated: I combine strategic brand thinking with agile workflows and effective marketing technologies. I know how to develop brand strategies that are realistic and achieveable.
Practical not theoretical: I approach brand challenges practically and outcome focused. I take great care to ensure that all metrics are actionable, all processes are lean and scaleable, and that marketing serves a real customer need.
Open not obfuscated: I aim to explain and break down complex brand and marketing strategies into steps that are easy to understand and put into action. I take advantage of modern presentation techniques and powerful tools for project and content management.
