What first attracted the two of you to your roles at PD? Stéphane: I was working in different roles at both state and federal level for more than two decades. There, I became very familiar with the structures of public administration. I saw the strengths of the public sector, but I also saw the untapped great potential across different levels. Becoming Managing Director of PD in 2016 was a fascinating opportunity. I could bring all my knowledge into a consulting company that had dedicated itself to one goal: shaping the public administration of the future. I am convinced that only by modernising public administration, we can provide citizens and businesses with efficient public infrastructure in the long term. Last but not least, the COVID-19 pandemic has made it obvious how important the digital transformation of the public sector is in times of crisis to keep society functioning, especially in the context of digital education. However, consulting for such purposes will only work if client and consultancy are equal partners. It is therefore important that consultants are not only experts in their respective fields but also understand how public administration works. This is what makes PD stand out: our public customers are our partners, and we are jointly developing innovative and suitable solutions to existing challenges – sustainable solutions that bring real added value. Our claim sums it up: for the public sector of tomorrow. Claus: Thanks to my former roles and professional experience in international corporations, I have a solid understanding of both the private sector and public © PD – Berater der öffentlichen Hand GmbH CEO Today Management Consul t ing Award s 2022 - GERMANY - - 21 -
