PEOPLE@INVERTO: Nicolas Willmann

INVERTOs new Managing Director „Enthusiasm Is In Our DNA“

Nicolas Willmann has been Managing Director at INVERTO in Cologne since the beginning of the year. As head of INVERTO’s Healthcare Department, he supports this industry’s clients and is responsible for acquisitions, building expertise, and developing industry-specific consulting approaches. Further developing his teams plays a crucial role for him, as his many years of experience in consulting have taught him that: “Consulting is a people business!”

Why did you choose INVERTO?

As well as the business model, and the integration and synergies with BCG, I was also particularly impressed by the team and INVERTO’s special values. I was also attracted to participating actively in becoming the leading procurement and SCM consultancy in Europe. It’s important to me to be actively entrepreneurial, to open up new markets and to continuously develop the consulting portfolio. And all this in an international team made up of highly professional procurement experts.

I had high expectations of the range of content, the industry expertise and cooperation with BCG, not only relating to large transformation programs but also to internal projects.

Have these expectations been met?

My expectations were not only met, they were exceeded. I was particularly impressed with our daily project work. “Create value” is one of our INVERTO value promises and plays a key role: we focus on identifying the customer’s real needs, future-proofing the entire procurement process and as a result, achieving a competitive edge.

I was also impressed by the social culture within our company. We have a very open culture of cooperation, feedback and trust. Using weekly feedback meetings in every project team and with the help of a dedicated coach, we can ensure sustainable productivity and team efficiency, and contribute to staff wellbeing. Most of all, however, my expectations were exceeded when it comes to having fun. Every day you can see that fun and enthusiasm are an integral part of the way we work.

From your experience in other consultancies: what makes INVERTO so special?

We don’t rest on our laurels, but continue to develop, always looking at what brings our customers lasting benefits. The entrepreneurial approach, pragmatism and strong morale within the teams and internal departments, as well as the international cooperation, also make INVERTO special.
