James Miller

Managing Director Change & Training

I love supporting leaders to build and sustain high performance teams and ensure all involved are enjoying work and life at the same time. My passion for this approach grew in me in my 1st job as an Account Manager in the IT industry. We delivered great results, but it was not fun for anyone. So began my mission combine great results and enjoying work. Over the years I have achieved this as a VP, MD and Global Lead. For the past 15 years I have been training others to achieve the same.

Markus Rieker

Managing Director Strategy, Efficiency & Operations

I love helping people and organisations become more successful. I do this by consulting on business and market strategy, processes, structures and internal cooperation. I have applied my passion for efficiency in many roles in the fintech and payment industry as a CEO, COO and VP. Now I am very happy to offer the essential external perspective to you, provide solutions for your success and follow through until you achieve what ever you set out to achieve when you considered working together with me and my teams.

Andreas Hummel

Consultant

It all starts with an idea.
Turning good ideas into reality inspires me every single day. In more than 30 years of responsibility for business and company development, I have learned what it takes to develop companies from 15 employees to 500 employees and from €5 million to €500 million in turnover. New business ideas often require new models and new ways of thinking. To support this path with practical and successful strategies is my passion. Fun, joy and personal satisfaction do not only come from a successful result, but must accompany the way there.
