Founder and Team
Characterized by an open and communicative company culture as well as flat hierarchies, we put respect towards our customers and colleagues in the first place. The people behind Seidenschwarz & Comp. are as different as the challenges they are facing every day. Our associates and consultants are different ‘types’ for whom working in an interdisciplinary and intercultural team is daily business. Project teams are an assembly of members of staff with a business administration, economic and/or engineering background. They possess industry, university and consulting experience and come from different regions of the world.
