About Oliver Berger

Automotive Business Consultant

I’m a highly motivated, driven & experienced individual that has successfully worked through all the ups and downs in the Automotive industry.

I worked my way up from shop floor engineer to upper management of a 1700 employee manufacturing facility.

Averaging a minimum of 1 launch per year over the past 20 years, made me get used to the high intensity, high stress environment of the Industry.

Multitasking and keeping the focus on the priorities is one of my strength, without letting the “noise” around me influence my decisions and results.

Through my global assignments, I travelled all around the world, can adjust quickly to the cultures and work environments in different countries.

I know both sides of the fence. I was a supplier to the big OEMs in the world, as well as customer to global and local equipment suppliers.

Whether you need support with shop-floor improvements, customer or supplier management or strategic planning – I’m flexible to take on any assignment small or large.
