Curious, fast thinking, trust-building and implementation-savvy - these strenghts characterize me. As I love to take on new challenges and to learn by doing, I have pursued various endeavours in my life. For example, I have studied economics and business administration, followed by an interdisciplinary PhD.
Also my career start at McKinsey & Company, Inc. in 2007 was marked by my preference for challenges, fast learning and traveling. At McKinsey I focused on the consumer goods and automotive industry as well as on Procurement and Operations. Besides working in Germany I also accompanied projects in the US, Spain and Switzerland.
In 2012 I decided to apply my learnings on Procurement by joining the Strategic Procurement Department of the BMW Group in Munich. Here I was able to successfully drive the design and implementation of a holistic approach to Category Strategies, using Scrum. In 2014 I took the opportunity to lead the Automotive Chemicals Team at BMW being globally responsible for sales (>200mn EUR) and product management. In 2016 my passion for Consulting led me to Deloitte Consulting where I was responsible for several large scale projects as a Senior Manager in the Operations Practice. Finally, I joined the global automotive supplier Webasto SE as the Director Corporate Strategy. While building the strategy department and working on the further evolution of Webasto's strategy, many implementation and transformation projects as well as various M&A activities shaped my work.
However, my "first love" consulting never let me go and thus I decided in 2019 to found my own business "Gisela Linge Consulting - Strategy meets Reality" in order to bring all these various perspectives, experiences, and learnings together, helping clients to develop strategies and transform their business successfully.
What else ... I love to spend my time with my family and friends, to travel the world, and read contemporary literature. Running and meditation help me to stay calm and rested in a fast-changing environment.
