    Business Area Manager

    bbv Software Services AG

    Making Visions Work - a claim which I strive to embody in all interactions with clients, partners and our teams. The beauty of together engaging with exciting ideas, pursuing promising outcomes and possibly overcoming seemingly unsurmountable challenges makes each and every visionary endeavour unique and myself keen to become part of it.

  • Current 9 years, since Jan 2015


    bbv Consultancy

    Driven by his fascination and experience in addressing fundamental issues at the senior management level, Alan offered his expertise to the bbv Consultancy team. Here, he first underwent a rigorous un-learning process with Stuart D.G. Robinson to develop the level of ethical and cultural neutrality which underlies bbv Consultancy’s understanding of professional consultancy. Since then, Alan has been researching and advising on matters of corporate ethics, culture, visions, and ethical health management.
