Dipl.-Ing. Hubert Petz, MSc

Managing Partner


Born close to the „Iron Curtain“ in eastern Austria Hubert allready discovered his interest in combining result orientation, process development & management and technique/IT as well during high school. His university studies in industrial engineering connected with electronics, production planning and control, systems engineering, organizational development and leadership crucialy encouraged this path.

Starting at Steyr Daimler Puch Fahrzeugtechnik GmbH – today the biggest part of Magna Steyr International – he was challenged with projects as reorganizing IT, implementation of new production planning and control systems, CAD-CAM-integration or business process optimization as a „greenhorn“ and learnt to handle big issues.

Hereinafter he was reached by a call from the fashionretailers Leder & Schuh AG with its brands Humanic, Shoe4You etc. in the role of the Chief Process & Information Officer/Head IT to design and implement three main paradigm shifts: Transition from a former shoe producing company to an entire shoe retailer including building of standardized and integrated processes, applications and IT-systems as a basis for fast and international growth and international expansion of the business and last but not least implementation of fully integrated eCommerce procedures in an very early stage. After this 27 “years of apprenticeship” Hubert decided in 2014 to relaunch as an independent business consultant on these areas. During this time he could manage several projects for international retail or production companies successfully and partially in an interim management’s role including recruiting of permanent specialist and leaders, too.

His expertise:

  • HR consulting
  • Recruiting of specialists and leaders in national and international areas
  • Executive Search of experts in industry sectors and IT

His expertise in industry sectors:

  • Industry und Automotive
  • Retail: International wholesale and retail
  • IT: Process-, technology-, application- und servicemanagment
