Johannes Frerichs

Head of Contract Logistics Site, DB Schenker

We wanted quick results, so it was crucial to work with seasoned consultants that had experience leading similar engagements. We decided to work with COMATCH because we were impressed by the team of top experts that were proposed to us. Looking back, we’re pleased with the results of the project and the simplicity of COMATCH’s consultant selection process. We definitely plan on working with them again.

Markus Zenker

Consultant from the COMATCH network

My role was to take over the operational steering, ramp up management, and to coordinate with the management. The project had strategic, structural and operational aspects. With the experienced and complementary COMATCH team the different project needs were worked on in parallel without extensive coordination efforts. Additionally, I had worked with Marcus in the past and knew he was a strong project manager meaning I could focus on my interim management tasks.

Marcus Jüptner

Consultant from the COMATCH network

As project manager, I had to ensure steady progress and full transparency for internal and external stakeholders. Because we had a synchronized overview of operational and structural goals, we were able to implement solutions faster than usual. Our hands on yet structured approach improved collaboration with all stakeholders and resulted in early handovers to the operative project members. The fact that I had worked with Markus before also saved us a lot of time during the onboarding phase.
