Anna Bender brings over 18 years of experience in transformation and restructuring at a strategy consultancy (Roland Berger) as well as corporate development and change management on the corporate side (Axel Springer).

“What attracts me to H&Z is the combination of content and culture: transformation – exactly my topic; especially in the area of strategy consulting, which has to reinvent itself in light of new customer requirements. Starting with brain, heart and hand – that's exactly the mix that makes it. We have to shape the transformation with clarity, courage and empathy,” she said on her new challenge.

Mihaela Seidl brings more than 20 years of experience in the international environment in the areas of strategy and growth as well as transformation, capital markets, finance and mergers & acquisitions. She previously worked eight years for General Electric, served as CFO at a German defence company, and currently is the CFO at energy group BayWa.

“I am delighted to join H&Z Management Consulting as a supervisory board member. I have come to know H&Z as a successful management consultancy with a clear focus, priorities and an impressive culture – with brain, heart & hand,” she said.

Founded in 1997, H&Z Management Consulting specialises in four lines of business: strategy, procurement, sales, and business transformation. The firm is the management consulting arm of professional services group H&Z, and is part of the Transformation Alliance – an association of independent European consultancies with 1,000+ consultants and 20 offices worldwide.
