What’s your story Jürgen

Hello, who are you and what brought you to INVERTO?

Hi, I’m Jürgen, 46 years old, married and father of two children.

I grew up in Ellwangen an der Jagst before I moved to Stuttgart to study engineering after my Abitur and civilian service.

After an internship at a strategy consulting firm, I completed an MBA in Stuttgart and Los Angeles. After further stops abroad in Mexico and the USA during my first job at Robert Bosch, I have now been living in Munich since 2007, where I also met my wife in the nightlife. My second job was already in consulting and like so many aspiring consultants I started with the goal to “survive” 2-3 years in the job. At the beginning, I found the ever-changing projects, client staff and challenges to be quite exhausting.

Today I can say that this is the reason why I am still in consulting after such a long time. I can’t remember exactly when I first became aware of INVERTO, it must have been a very long time ago. With 17 years of (purchasing) consulting experience, of course I know INVERTO. Formerly as a competitor and today as a superior employer with a unique, collegial and supportive culture. In addition to the professional criteria, this was the deciding factor for my change to INVERTO.

What are you doing at INVERTO?

I am one of our managing directors in the Munich office and primarily serve customers from the automotive and mechanical engineering industries. In addition to customer projects, I manage the “Center of Excellence” for the purchasing of non-production materials. Here, we are constantly developing new best practices and tools, creating benchmarks and answering the question of how our customers can sustainably purchase non-production materials in the future. One of the ways I develop myself is by interacting as much as possible with our junior employees. They know about numerous topics in which I can still learn a lot.

 

Do you have a favorite place and why is it your favorite?

Gardone Riviera: As a Munich resident, one naturally likes to go to Lake Garda and this little place has particularly taken a shine to my wife and me.

Who was your childhood hero and why?

Jerry from Tom & Jerry: He was small, but clever, fast and always the winner in the end. Since I was always one of the smaller ones too, that was my hero.

Which concert have you visited lastly and how was it?

Udo Lindenberg: It’s incredible how he fought his way back after difficult times and still rocks the stages today. I also love his lyrics and the rocking sound.
