Daniel Helfer

Manager - Darmstadt Office

Which projects are you working on?

With a background in business informatics, I generally work on various IT and digital topics across all sectors. For example, I supported the development of a digital strategy for one of the business units in Life Science. As this business unit was newly established at that time, we helped to lay the strategic foundations for how digital technologies can contribute to business success. Moreover, I was involved in assessing the value potential of artificial intelligence at our organization and deriving promising application areas for the future.

What is your role in these projects?

I manage projects from start to finish together with the project lead on the client side. This means that I have great responsibility for the success of a project. At the same time, I have a lot of freedom to shape the project and make suggestions for its direction. I truly enjoy the direct and pragmatic interaction with the clients, which helps me to further expand my project management skills and build a strong network within the organization.

What do you like most about your job?

I am grateful for the opportunity to work on highly relevant and strategic, but also diverse topics on a daily basis. This allows me to continuously learn and develop myself. In addition, I very much appreciate our culture of trust and empowerment. 

What did you do before you joined IC?​

Before joining IC in April 2022, I worked as a consultant at Strategy& within the Technology Strategy practice in Frankfurt. With my business informatics background, I supported a variety of IT projects and eventually focused on driving digital transformation in the public sector.

How do you spend your time outside of work?

In my spare time, I take martial arts training twice a week. I discovered kickboxing over a year ago and it is now an integral part of my weekly routine. Apart from that, I try something new every year. In 2023, I learned to juggle and went to a surf camp for the first time.
