“Richard is a recognised expert for sales, development, and production in the automotive industry. He also has extensive experience in strategy development and implementation,” said managing partners Buss and Schrader.

Hesch meanwhile brings over three decades of experience to the firm. He spent the past seventeen years gained in the retail sector, latterly holding several senior leadership roles at wholesale company Metro. Earlier in his career he was a managing director at the Red Cross in Germany, and worked seven years for Kearney (then: A.T. Kearney).

“Richard has been very successful in various positions at Metro for over a decade and before that gained experience in strategy consulting,” said Buss and Schrader.
