Corinna Alpers

Prof. Dr. Pamela Luckau

Corinna Alpers is a team assistant at Keller Partner. She is the one pulling all the strings together. Calls come in to her central phone number, she takes care of the daily back office tasks and supports the team as well as the network partners of KellerPartner GmbH with her work.

She completed her training and subsequent traineeships with distinction in the upscale Cologne hotel industry. In the following years, she gained further professional experience as an editorial and event assistant at internationally active television production companies.

As a certified communication and behavioural trainer, she has been working for clients from academia, the corporate world and politics for almost 20 years. Her speciality is the focus on best behaviour and the question of how exactly this behaviour can succeed via a vis ourselves, employees or relatives in challenging life situations. She works in house with groups and individuals in Germany and other European countries in German and English and advises clients at Keller Partner on the design of learning and development paths. As a professor at Germany’s only distance learning university of applied science, she is an expert in virtually designed learning and development processes.

Mathias Pflüger

Mathias Pflüger

Markus Orengo is the founder of social systems engineering GmbH in Zurich and a network partner of Keller Partner in Bonn.

His expertise is in connecting strategy, organization and management. In classic approaches, these complex management domains are mostly dealt with in an isolated fashion. In contrast, Markus supports managers with decision power in understanding and developing them holistically and deliberately. At the center of his approach is a throughout orientation towards the customer, or towards the beneficiary, respectively.

In his function as a management consultant, trainer and university lecturer, Markus assures that these terms do not remain empty clichés. Instead, he supports managers in understanding their customers and their competitive situation in a structured manner and, on this basis, in developing customer oriented organizations, customer oriented innovation and management systems as well as customer oriented cost structures. His toolbox connects normative topics, such as vision and mission, with the operative management of individuals. The objective lies in achieving that each individual knows, which contribution she is supposed to deliver in her organization – and that she indeed wants, is allowed to and is able to deliver this contribution.

The approach of Markus is based on the systems oriented St. Gallen approach as well as on related approaches. He has refined it over many years in close interaction with his training and consulting experience. Markus has published the core elements of his approach in several publications, among others in the book ›Kundenorientierung‹ (Engl. Customer Orientation) (Verlag Tredition, 2017).

Before Markus started in dealing with the engineering of social systems, he used to focus on technical systems. After his studies of electrical engineering at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich he spent 12 years in complex, international IT and Telecom environments. At first he focused on purely technical tasks. Later, commercial and management tasks grew in importance. During the years 2005–07 he did an MBA in international Management in France. Markus speaks fluently Swiss German, German, English and French as well as a decent Italian.

Mathias Pflüger is a network partner of Keller Partner in Bonn. He works as a management trainer and consultant for international and medium-sized companies. He does this in various industries and contexts: Automotive, insurance, personnel services, telecommunications, publishing, fashion, energy, healthcare, administration and banking. His range of services includes the conception and implementation of leadership development programs, the support of change processes as well as the development of cultural patterns and cultural objectives of companies.

He has 19 years of experience as a trainer and consultant in which he managed and implemented numerous projects with several thousand executives at the Malik Management Zentrum in St. Gallen and as a freelancer.

He began his studies of organizational and business psychology at the University of Saarbrücken and finished it at the Ludwig-Maximilians-University in Munich where he also worked for three years as a research assistant at the chair of Prof. Rosenstiel. He completed in-service training in system-oriented management theory.

Dr. Gregor Rinn

Prof. Dr. Christian Kalhöfer

As a network partner at Keller Partner, Gregor Rinn focuses on facilitating clarity. This includes supporting individuals reconciling themselves with their roles and guiding teams through conflict or towards commonly shared goals.

Understanding what the individual experiences and making these unique experiences being understood is the focus of his work.

Moreover he is familiar with the client‘s business context based on his ten years of experience as a strategic management consultant amongst others with The Boston Consulting Group, Oliver Wyman und Deekeling Arndt Advisors.

His work experience stretches not only across several lines of industry but encompasses also very diverse clientele. Whether it is for a group of bus drivers in Berlin of for high-ranking employees of the Royal Palace in Rhyiad, he has a keen focus on the individual person.

Having studied History and Psychology he has deep knowledge and expertise of change processes. He obtained his doctorate on the subject of the national self-perception of the German people in the picture of the automobile.

Prof. Dr. Christian Kalhöfer, network partner of Keller Partner, has been active for more than 20
years in the training and further education of executives, with focusing on the banking sector. In the classical topics of overall bank management, he works effectively with a blended learning / gamification approach using a simulation program, which enables the participants to achieve a deep understanding of the topic within a relatively short time and thus an intensive understanding of the overall context.

He began his academic career by studying industrial engineering (mechanical engineering) at the Technical University in Kaiserslautern. He completed his doctoral thesis on the use of the matched market rate concept in life insurance companies while working as a research associate at the Chair of Financial Services and Financial Management (Prof. Dr. Reinhold Hölscher).

He then worked as a professor at the German University in Cairo, where he was Head of Department for the Corporate Finance and Accounting departments. His next step led him to the American University of Paris, before he finally moved to the ADG Business School at the Steinbeis University Berlin. Here he holds the professorship for General Business Administration with a focus on Banking and Finance and, as academic director, is responsible for the master’s programs.

In his research, he deals not only with the original banking and financial topics but also with issues of business ethics. He is a member of the Society of Business Ethics.

He began his academic career by studying industrial engineering (mechanical engineering) at the Technical University in Kaiserslautern. He completed his doctoral thesis on the use of the matched market rate concept in life insurance companies while working as a research associate at the Chair of Financial Services and Financial Management (Prof. Dr. Reinhold Hölscher).

He then worked as a professor at the German University in Cairo, where he was Head of Department for the Corporate Finance and Accounting departments. His next step led him to the American University of Paris, before he finally moved to the ADG Business School at the Steinbeis University Berlin. Here he holds the professorship for General Business Administration with a focus on Banking and Finance and, as academic director, is responsible for the master’s programs.

In his research, he deals not only with the original banking and financial topics but also with issues of business ethics. He is a member of the Society of Business Ethics.
