Beatriz Pineda

Manager - Darmstadt Office

Which projects are you working on?

I’m working on a project that focuses on sustainability. Climate change and upcoming new regulations pose challenges that need to be assessed. The variety of our products also adds complexity to these challenges. By operating in a singular approach and looking at both the problems and the opportunities, we can make a big difference in embedding sustainability into our business. Our main stakeholders are our corporate sustainability teams and all sectors with their respective sustainability leaders.

What is your role in these projects?

Currently I’m the IC project lead, working with a great team based on a further consultant, a graduate, and an intern to deliver high-quality work for our clients, aligned with our High Impact Culture behaviors. I communicate regularly with all our stakeholders, as sustainability requires a collaborative effort. A crucial skill I continuously employ is managing stakeholder expectations and perspectives. The main challenge lies in synthesizing optimal outcomes from often very different approaches.

What do you like most about your job?

I appreciate the level of responsibility that we are entrusted with from the first day of our job. This enables me to face new challenges and grow professionally and personally.

What did you do before you joined Inhouse Consulting?

I reinvented my career when making the decision to enter the consulting world in the area of transaction and M&A, following the completion of my PhD in polymer chemistry.

How do you spend your time outside of work?

During my free time, I listen to podcasts and audiobooks. I'm also passionate about leadership and I always try to learn more about it. But sometimes, my twins demand my attention and I have to switch from leader to follower.

Any advice to applicants?

Be authentic! Just like we will be authentic. This will give both, the interviewer and you, a real idea about who we are and if we are a potential match!
