Value Proposition STRUCTURE M&C Structure Management & Consulting

What we offer to our clients is a high quality of services and full dedication. Seeing my business experience, I can support your organisation on the following 5 business domains:

  • Risk Management,
  • Quality Management,
  • Product Development,
  • Marketing and
  • Operations

Our proposition can be classified into the following four categories:

  • Program and Project Management,
  • Interim Management,
  • Change Management and
  • Investment Management

Please see these areas explained in details below.

➡ Program and Project Management

Value Proposition STRUCTURE M&C Structure Management & Consulting
Within program and project management my first major accomplishment was a Turnaround Program for ABN AMRO Bank in Hungary. I was working in the project team responsible for designing a new sales management cycle. After that I moved to the Netherlands, I was managing various business development projects. Later I was in charge for setting up green-field business units and establishing a joint venture. I had a group of dedicated project managers, project assistants and had to engage with the local senior management and numerous stakeholders.

Later as an external consultant, I supported a group of private investors in the acquisition of a German bank.

Where can I add value? That depends on your business situation, but I could play the role of a Program Manager or just be part of your PMO organisation. Alternatively I could also run a dedicated, specific project or be a Project Controller monitoring cost, time and quality.

➡ Interim Management

Value Proposition STRUCTURE M&C Structure Management & Consulting
I would like to highlight two major achievements on the field of interim management. One achievement was within Deutsche Bank’s Risk Division which supports the Commercial Banking activities. There I was ad interim fulfilling the role of Operations Manager within a specific transaction called Credit Umbrella. I had the responsibility to:

  • Lead and coach the Operations Team
  • Optimise processes
  • Control quality
  • Design the organisation and
  • Manage specific projects

The most important project I was running here was a system migration.

The other responsibility I would like to mention was an interim risk and quality manager function for ABN AMRO Bank in Germany.

Where can I add value to your organisation? I would like to mention those five areas where I have multiple years of expertise and can act as Interim Manager:

  • Risk Management
  • Quality Management
  • Product Development
  • Marketing
  • Operations

➡ Change Management

Value Proposition STRUCTURE M&C Structure Management & Consulting
On the area of Change Management, I would draw your attention to the following two successes. First of all, I was setting up two lending units for an international financial institution, ABN AMRO Bank in Germany. I had to carry out Quick Scans, write Business Cases for the board and deliver Implementation Blueprints. Finally I was the responsible Program Manager to set up these units.
Prior to this experience, I was part of a Turnaround Program in Hungary where we had to put ABN AMRO Bank on a profitable growth path. Personally I was involved with the design and implementation of a new sales management cycle, including a training program and toolkits.

Where can I add value to your company? I can support you with start-ups, turnarounds and also with exit and divestment decisions. On any of these fields, I am pleased to work together with you in the future.

➡ Investment Management

Value Proposition STRUCTURE M&C Structure Management & Consulting
With regard to investment management, I would mention two major transactions. In the first one I was working for ABN AMRO Bank and was arranging a Joint Venture Mortgage Lender with another Financial Institution in Romania. In the second one I was managing a bank acquisition transaction in Germany for a group of private investors.

Where can I add value to your investment activities? Potentially I could support you in the preparation of Business Cases, coordinating Term Sheets, Investment Proposals or managing the vendors in such a large scale transaction including quality and cost control.

➡ Risk Management

Value Proposition STRUCTURE M&C Structure Management & ConsultingOn the field of Risk Management, I gained my first experience with ABN AMRO Bank where I was acting as interim Risk Manager in Germany for a mortgage lending unit. Later on I was supporting an IT company setting up a brief Risk Management Framework based upon their business model and processes. I was also proud of having the opportunity to work for Deutsche Bank’s Risk Division in The Netherlands for two and a half years on the Credit Umbrella transaction.

My potential contribution with regard to risk management can cover the following areas:

  • Running larger projects, programs with some risk management angle;
  • Fulfilling some interim functions or
  • Designing and implementing a Risk Management Framework for smaller organizations

➡ Quality Management

Value Proposition STRUCTURE M&C Structure Management & ConsultingI have relevant experience with various aspects of quality management. When I joined ABN AMRO Bank in Hungary, I was the head of the Customer Insight Department which next to marketing research was also responsible for carrying out quality management surveys. Subsequently when I was working in Germany I became the Quality Manager of a local mortgage lender.

Years later when I had an assignment with Deutche Bank Risk Management as interim Operations Manager, I was also responsible for process optimisation and maximising the quality of our output.
Seeing all this experience I can imagine various areas where I can contribute to your organisation. For example in:

  • Designing quality-related surveys,
  • Process definition and improvement and
  • Setting up a Quality Management Framework.

➡ Product Development

Value Proposition STRUCTURE M&C Structure Management & Consulting
Allow me to explain my product development-related business experience. When I was working for ABN AMRO Bank in Hungary within the Marketing and Product Development Directorate, as the Head of Customer Insight Department, I was supporting numerous product launches. We delivered all the required market information and research insights.

When I was managing business development projects, the typical scope of such assignments were:

  • Market scans,
  • Definition of value drivers and
  • Development of new product propositions.

Also as Risk Manager I was constantly engaged with the product development function when I delivered the product programmes and risk policies.

Considering all these product-related experience, I could support you on the following areas:

  • Reviewing your product portfolio (from a risk and profitability point)
  • Providing marketing research support for your product development function or
  • Preparing Business Cases together with your experts.

➡ Marketing

Value Proposition STRUCTURE M&C Structure Management & Consulting
Please bear with me for a second that I can explain how I gained my expertise with regard to marketing. I started my career in a Telemarketing company carrying out in- and outbound campaigns. In a later stage I also contributed to the analysis of these surveys. In my next career step I moved to a marketing research company where I was running both quantitative and qualitative surveys. I was moderating focus groups, performing in-depth interviews and coordinating nation-wide representative surveys. Having this experience I became the Head of Business-To-Business Research leading a dedicated team of professionals.

Gaining sufficient experience I joined the client side, ABN AMRO Bank for which I was managing the Marketing Research (later Customer Insight) Department. I have learned how to transfer research information into business insights supporting the realisation of the marketing strategy.

Having said that I can foresee supporting you in multiple ways, for example:

  • Designing and analysing marketing surveys or
  • Arranging your marketing research activities within a project or interim assignment

➡ Operations
