Dipl. Wi-Ing. Gerrit Bottemöller


My goal is to provide enterprises high performance  consulting in strategy and HR development processes to create sustainable performance!
A position which needs the skills in communication, counseling, organization, human leadership, technology consulting, analysis and problem solving.



Often do I rate my own success in the development of my team members whom I am responsible for. The detection of the individual strength of each individual team member and its promotion is an important priority. The role as a project manager and the successful development of the employees are the intrinsic motivation for me to lead a team always by example. Within in an open team structure complex project will be developed successfully.


Through my collaboration with European, American and Australian colleagues, I have learned through targeted communication how to manage cultural differences in international project teams. 60% to 80% of the success of a project depend on the communication between the members, lead by the project manager.
I am an experienced speaker, who released his presentations in front of large groups and has steered groups from 5 to 70 person.


Through a high degree of flexibility, I have build up a strong problem-solving nature, which always led me to sus-tained success in personnel issues, organizational issues and operational processes. Problems represent a challenge for me. As a very organized and diligent person, it is in my nature to simplify highly complex processes ("Simplify your work").


One of the main factors contributing to the success of an enterprise is its human capital. This capital has to be developed in a continuous process. I experienced that it is very helpful to involve employees in the development process. Simultaneously this can involve the ideas and objectives in the overall goals. By this approach the intrinsic motivation of employees and the productivity can be increased.


My strengths lie in coordinative and managing tasks and I am always very interested in new challenges. Teamwork is a high priority, but I also look for self-directed tasks. The challenge to lead a team lies in establishing and maintaining an effective team communication culture to build up sustainable success.
