Industry X Lead

Zürich, Switzerland

"I am proud to work for a company that offers opportunities to do work that’s meaningful—and can even change the world."

How I put change in motion

I lead our Industry X practice in Switzerland, and I am also responsible for Industry X sales in Germany, Switzerland, Austria and Russia. Within my role, I initiated and built the relationship and collaboration with Swiss eco-tech company Climeworks.

We partnered with Climeworks to help expand their unique direct carbon-capture technology and make it scalable. This is an invaluable technology in the fight against climate change.

As the project lead, I was the primary interface between the client and Accenture teams, actively engaged in each step of the project to monitor progress on our key objectives.

Our work helped provide technology solutions that allow Climeworks to become a more data-driven company and to gain access to undiscovered insights. This work will reduce operational costs and further optimize their plants for the future.

I am proud to work for a company that offers opportunities to do work that’s meaningful—and can even change the world.

The Climeworks team included Technical Architect Gary Boyle, who focused on ensuring the effectiveness of the digital plant solution; Managing Director Andrew Smith, who helped champion the project; Managing Director René Wiedemann, who helped ensure Accenture’s sponsorship of the project; and Project Analytics Lead Xiang Zhao, who translated requirements for the analytics team.

A day in my life

I love my work and innovating with as clients. We help guide their transformational change. Here’s a look at what a typical day might entail:

  • Early wake-up (sometimes 5:00 a.m.!) to do yoga, meditate or run to get energized for the day.
  • Grab my laptop and plan my day.
  • Lead and participate in calls to review the progress of projects I’m supervising or leading around intelligent product and packaging, engineering, manufacturing, operations, supply chain and service.
  • Communicate with clients, partner companies, universities and colleagues to explore the potential Industry X has to offer.
  • The most exciting part of my days is using leading-edge technologies we apply to guide our clients’ transformations, such as the Internet of Things, robotics, artificial intelligence, augmented/virtual reality, wearables and drones.
