2. Conclusion/Overview

After finishing my economics studies in 1986 and an entrance activity in a fair and conference event company I initially gained 10 years of experience and job practice with medium-sized IT companies. This experience was in the field of sales and marketing and later in product and project management as well as in organisation and finally assisting the management.

Between 1997 and 1999 I worked as a group manager in the product management of the DZ BANK electronic payment transaction section. Afterwards I was employed until 2004 as a product manager at an IT service company active in the cooperative banking area, the BIK in Frankfurt/Main. In addition I also assumed the responsibilities of a project manager.

Since 2004 I offered as freelancer several project-related services  together with a small group of mainly IT-related management consultants and software developers. In the last years I have been working on various project tasks - mainly in the Finance sector. So I worked as a project manager and/or as test manager in projects around the optimization of the Electronic Payments between Non-bank companies (Insurances, finance service providers, large-scale enterprise...) and Banking institutions.

The support of the SEPA-adaptation was main topic of the last years til 2013/2014 in the financial field in Germany. My main tasks in these projects were among these items:

  • Project manager, subproject manager, project leader, project planner
  • Business analyst/Consultant
  • Test manager/Test coordinator

1.3.1 Current, personal background: To the end of the SEPA adaptation in 2013/2014 there was in the great customer enterprises none and/or only very few, succession projects corresponding to my professional knowledge.

So I had decided to work as a test and project manager from the summer 2014 in the company Sogeti Germany on basis of an employee contract. The work emphasis and key activities are focused in the banking field too.

1.3.2 Project experience: I completed my last projects as freelancer with the following customers:

  • 2011:
    • At the beginning of 2011 I was given the contract as project manager to support the DEG, of the Deutsche Investitions- und Entwicklungsgesellschaft mbH, in Cologne with their reorganisation of the payment transactions – also on the basis of MaRisk requirements.
    • From mid May to the end of July 2011 I worked in the R+V insurance group in Wiesbaden in the start phase for the preparation of a rough concept for the SEPA transition.
    • Subsequently from August to October 2011 I was the technical project manager for the Bausparkasse Schwäbisch Hall (BSH) for preparing a rough concept for adapting the core bank application to SEPA.
  • 2012:
    • From January to July 2012 I was employed as a technical subproject manager at the ERGO Direkt Versicherung in the technical and fine analysis work for the SEPA transition.
