About Vanessa Roos:
Born near Stuttgart and raised in Hanover, Vanessa lives in Frankfurt for almost 15 years now, with a short two-year-break in Geneva, Switzerland. After her studies of International Business in Mainz and Karlstad, Sweden she took on her first employment in a consultancy by starting a sales and growth assignment at a German automotive supplier in Japan. For the years to follow Vanessa’s career was coined by other marketing and sales projects in the automotive industry.
After four years in consulting Vanessa wanted to get to know the other side and moved on to one of the world’s largest industrial service providers. This is where Vanessa got acquainted with lean management ( = continuous improvement, efficacy and efficiency throughout processes), both in theory as well as at sites in various countries.
In order to pair her consulting experience with her lean knowledge after two more years Vanessa returned to consulting, now with the focus of lean management and, thus, process improvement. She realized efficiency gains of up to 15 percent in many of her projects, mainly in the aviation sector, from shopfloors to executive levels.
Throughout her career Vanessa copes with diverse cultures, mindsets and hierarchies. By becoming a systemic coach, she connected her business knowledge with her interests in mental health and stress management. In consulting as well as when coaching people are at the core of Vanessa’s work.
