About me

Diethard Engel


Being a graduated economist, specialized in organization and innovation management, I am looking back at many years of experience as an executive in international businesses, amongst others with global players like Unilever, ICI or Henkel. I have been internationally seasoned during my six year tenure as CFO of a global medium-sized specialty chemicals business in the US and additional one year-and-a-half in the UK.

You are welcome to connect with me, and join my network.

Self-employed since 2012

Starting in 2012, I have worked as an independent Interim Manager and Consultant. Since, I have been able to support mandators from various industry sectors reliably and competently. As an Interim Manager, I focus on the areas of business transformation, post-merger integration/carve-out and executive finance; in Consulting, my emphasis is on industrial portfolio management and on optimization of processes and organization. I enjoy personal interaction and prefer direct communication and decision making patterns – both typical for the German „Mittelstand“.

My professional experience stretches across all relevant commercial and financial functions. I have gathered industry know-how in particular in (fine) chemicals, in plant engineering and construction, in automotive, life sciences, FMCG (including e-commerce), food and professional services.

Accreditation with leading interim management agencies and networks as well as my association with Global PMI Partners warrant proven quality and references
