Partner Indstrat International Consultants LLP, Pune India ( http://indstrat.co.in/ )
I have worked with Chris Sievers since end of 2010. I would call Chris an international personality, a motivator and an experienced executive coach. Apart from his mainstream work as the Finance Leader at CGZ, he has mentored many KMUs in their growth strategy as a director on board and helped them streamline their organizational processes and achieve their goals. He has an excellent understanding of the finer nuances of Asian business cultures and can push international organizations to move beyond the differences and deliver. In case of Indstrat International, Chris has mentored me to lead and manage a consultancy boutique and guided me right from setting up the value offer for customers, establishing visibility to taking tough decisions in challenging business situations. A very direct, open and international personality!
Chairman Board of Directors 2018, MVCI Son Antem
Having known Chris Sievers for 5 years, I am very happy to provide a citation to support him with his new venture. Chris was a member of the Marriott Advisory Board of Directors at the Son Antem Resort in Mallorca, from 2011 until 2017. I became a member in 2013 and joined Chris on the Finance Team. He demonstrated a thorough knowledge of the entire financial structure of the resort, c. 10 Million Euro per annum budget and the interface between the resort and the Marriott Corporation. He worked with diligence and integrity, throughout his 6 year term to represent the best interests of the 7,000 owners at the resort. His ideas and initiatives created a platform which enabled the board to challenge aspects of the management’s strategy, negotiate improved solutions and achieve beneficial cost savings.
As Chairman of the board from 2015 to 2017, which consisted of 7 voluntary members, he developed a strong and integrated team which operated across all facets of the resort. Throughout that time, his influence and commitment enabled the board to deliver many successful initiatives which resulted in an improved vacation experience for owners and guests. The resort will continue to benefit from his positive approach and leadership for many future years.
