Wir sprechen Ihre Sprache! (We speak your language!)
Posted: 04 September 2018
At Chartwell Consulting, we have always recognised the German-speaking DACH region of Germany, Austria and Switzerland, and we understand how important language is to our clients’ teams.
That is why in 2015, two years after founding Chartwell, we opened an office in Berlin.
Since then, through transfers of experienced consulting staff and new hires from the talent pool emerging from Germany’s excellent technical universities, we have been building a team who are fluent in both English and German in both our Swiss and German offices.
Our operations here are headed by Ewald van Ravenswaay, who has nearly fifteen years’ experience of helping clients achieve breakthrough improvements in operational performance.
Ewald said: “At Chartwell we believe in building broad experience across industries, while developing deep understanding and knowledge of improvement and implementation methodology. I have worked to keep my industry experience broad, including consumer goods, textiles, chemicals and food & beverage.
“This has the benefit that our teams learn to listen and look more careful and attentive to understand the specifics of our clients’ processes, situation and needs.”
“It’s about enabling our companies and economies to be more competitive and more sustainable. I still get excited thinking about a project many years ago where a colleague and I reduced the PVC wastage of a client by 250 tons a year – the positive environmental impact of that is one of the things that motivates me to do this job to this day.”
The German and Swiss offices will be key to the future for Chartwell so if you have a company or interest in the region, contact us now to see how our problem solving and analytic abilities can make a lasting impact on your business.
