Management consulting firm Oliver Wyman has bolstered its German partner team with three additions: Jürgen von der Lehr, Simon Schnurrer and Jürgen Stetter.

Jürgen von der Lehr (46) was most recently Head of Digital Innovation & Think Tank at Deutsche Bank. In addition to his extensive digital skills, he has gained strategic and operational expertise in retail and corporate banking in his current line activities as well as in management consulting. Based in Oliver Wyman’s Frankfurt office, Von der Lehr will advise clients on the development and implementation of strategic initiatives, focused on digitisation, innovation and the implementation of new business models.

Simon Schnurrer (41) began his career as a consultant at Mercer Management Consulting, which is the legal predecessor of Oliver Wyman. He then moved to automotive company Porsche in a line function and subsequently worked for Arthur D. Little, as a Principal, and at Ricardo, latterly in the role of Managing Director for Central Europe. Having returned to Oliver Wyman as a partner in the firm’s Automotive wing, also based in Frankfurt, Schnurrer is responsible for leading the offerings aimed at supplier strategies, organisation and technology deployment.

Jürgen Stetter (48) previously worked as an Executive Leader for Digital Transformation & Innovation at innogy before joining Oliver Wyman. Prior to that, Stetter worked for German energy giant E.ON and for over a decade in the consulting industry. At Oliver Wyman in Munich, Stetter has been appointed a partner in the Energy and Digital, Technology & Analytics (DTA) practices, focused on advising clients on their transition to new digital business models. 

Finja Carolin Kütz, the CEO of Oliver Wyman in Germany (five offices*), said that all three new partners bring much welcome digital transformation and innovation capabilities to the firm. “Digitisation is forcing companies to change their strategies and business models. Across all sectors our customers are dealing with digital transformation and are looking for solutions. We are pleased to welcome Jürgen, Simon and Jürgen to our partner team – it will benefit our services to customers.”

The additions in the digital realm come one month after Oliver Wyman significantly bolstered its European digital arm, which operates as Oliver Wyman Labs, with the acquisition of UK agency Draw, in a move that added 50 experts to its London team.

Earlier this year in Germany’s consulting industry, Accuracy poached Guido Althaus from rival Alvarez & Marsal, where he served the past three years as a Senior Director. Meanwhile, in December OC&C Strategy Consultants saw its entire German office join Parthenon-EY – the strategy consultancy arm of EY – while Bain & Company was named Germany’s best employer by review site Glassdoor.
