Using Experiences

I am C-level interim manager for medium-sized companies and groups. You as my customer benefit in projects from my more than 25 years of successful national and international business management experience.

Core Competencies

Industry focus: process- and Pprinting Industry as well as mechanical engineering.

Distinctive general management expertise and profound practical experience and skills in sales, r&d, operations and HR.

Turnaround Management in medium-sized manufacturing companies, especially in international corporate groups .

Many years of expertise in capital-intensive, technology-driven B2B business processes.

I help you in exceptional business situations quickly and purposefully. In doing so, I only take on a mandate if I'm sure I can be successful for you.

From my point of view, the central questions about choising an interim manager are: Do the person fit into the upcoming project and the company? Does he have experience with the upcoming tasks? And: Is the interim manager worth the money?
Therefore, the aim of this website is to give you the best possible impression of my work.
However, no website can replace the personal talk. A telephone call or a first non-binding personal meeting are completing the picture.


There is nothing more than a personal recommendation. Therefore here is customer´s opinion from my last finished mandate:

" … In particular, we value his calm and assertive manner, with which he managed the company unerringly and successfully - both internally and externally - even in a difficult environment. ... We were extremely satisfied with the commitment of Dr.-Ing. Pohé throughout the assignment and can absolutely and fully recommend him as an interim manager at CEO level … " (Marc Zube, COO of Callista Private Equity)

Defining Targets


Bringing in Management and Project Experiences

With my functions in the mechanical engineering and in the process industry, very different requirements have to be solved. Common to all is a generalist approach to grasp the overall context. At the same time, it is important to have an eye for the essential details that are ultimately crucial. I realize this with many years of practical experience in at least all areas of a manufacturing medium-sized companies.
