Hi, I am Fabian. Innovation consultant, startup founder, marketeer, husband & father.

4 things you can expect:

Communication, passion and energy, fun

I like to explain, to describe, to host, to speak in public, to convince, to sell, turn ideas into stories and sell my information with all my energy. I am a very positive person and I like to infect people with this joy, even in a business context.

Strategic

I love to sort through the clutter and find the best route, see patterns and play out alternative scenarios. “What if?” Select. Strike.

Futuristic

“Wouldn’t it be great if . . .” I love to peer over the horizon. The future fascinates me. It keeps pulling me forward and therefore I always want to optimise. A better product, a better team, a better life, a better way of communication etc.

Achiever

I have a constant need for achievement and an inner drive for change. For me it feels like every week starts at zero and I don’t remember achievements of last week. I feel dissatisfied if the day passes without some important points deleted from my to do list (personal or professional). If you want to elevate your organisation, turn it inside out and get external perspectives on your business - I am your man.

Martin Schumacher, Vermarktungsleiter kicker:

“Fabian kennt sich extrem gut aus mit neuen Businesmodellen und Startups und bringt eine Fröhlichkeit und Leichtigkeit mit, die wir so im Projekt nicht hatten."

Wieland Lindenthal, CEO Forkmerge:

“When you see how Fabian organises his emails you get a glimpse of an idea why he gets so much done. It looks like a quasi automation of not automatable tasks. And telling from his everlasting smile I sometimes believe he is carrying his own private sun with himself.”

Birgit Clauss - Head of Marketing and eCommerce @Condor Flugdienst GmbH:

“He always provides a hands-on approach, clear roadmaps and continuously challenges the business not only to strengthen and extend today’s business but also harness new tools and technologies to be more competitive tomorrow. He regularly proposes new ways of working to optimise our marketing efforts and to get to more data-driven decision making. His strong entrepreneurial mindset, marketing expertise and know-how of new technologies provide a fresh breeze and new perspectives to the business.”

Joana Barceló – Sales Manager:

“Deadline oriented person. Independent and customer focused strategist. Innovative perfectionist always ready to put all his energy and stamina to get the job done.”

Luca Gatti – Partner & Associate Director Digital Acceleration @Boston Consulting Group:

“Fabian brought to the table strong marketing expertise, a lot of passion and a pleasant can-do attitude. He contributed to creating a positive and productive collaboration between AKQA and Coca-Cola. He was also used and effective at working remotely. We delivered the whole project mostly by connecting over video and calls and working on shared documents. I would love to have the opportunity to work with Fabian again in the future.”

Things you should not expect from me:

I fly in for important meetings/pitches etc. and I am very responsive and you can reach out via all channels you like, but I am living in Spain with my family. If you are looking for someone with office presence + 2 days a week in Berlin/London/Paris etc. I am not the right guy.

If you want to have detailed 5 year predictions, crazy excel files and super precise documentation of projects - I highly recommend you someone else. Speed over perfection.
