Jean Laurent Poitou as the new Managing Director, will lead the growth of the digital business area in EMEA. Poitou and his team will work across A & M’s industry segments including Consumer Goods, Retail, Industrial & Automotive, Healthcare, Life Sciences, Financial Services, Hospitality, and Technology, Telecommunications & Media.

A&M is observing increased customer demand for practice-oriented advice on how digitization can be implemented sustainably and on a large scale in every corporate area. That is why the renowned consulting company has developed a unique offering on the subject of digitization, which is based on data and analyzes, customer and employee experiences, sales and marketing as well as new digital business models. It is structured in such a way that it perfectly complements the existing range of services and the results-oriented focus of A&M.

“Despite the growth in digitization, many companies are struggling to exploit the full potential of technologies and digital solutions. There is some assumption that digitization will not affect their specific industrial sector. But no matter where their industry is on the development curve, further changes are certain Companies should not underestimate the impact future disruption will have; they should act now, not only to avoid being left behind, but also to outperform their competition, “says Jean Laurent Poitou.

“If digitization is implemented and scaled efficiently, it can have a significant impact on sales growth and profits.

“Although medium-sized companies, which are so important for Germany, have always dealt with the topic of digitization and their own possibilities, we see a different picture with many blue chip companies: orchestrating digitization not only selectively, but effectively across departments, is one of them Unexpected challenge. Often, the implementation of good strategic planning in practice does not succeed as planned. Jean Laurent Poitou and the new team will transfer A & M’s proven transformation skills to digital transformation, so that companies can also achieve concrete results and success here, “explains Philipp Ostermeier, Managing Director Corporate Transformation Services bei A&M.

A&M understands digitization as an acceleration factor that can be integrated into a company’s approach and processes using simple and pragmatic approaches. A & M’s competencies and performance in this area will make a significant difference to companies as they open up opportunities for real growth and savings to affect other areas of the business.
