Umbrex is pleased to welcome Mortimer von Plettenberg.  Mortimer von Plettenberg, a lawyer by background, started his career as an Associate in McKinsey’s Hamburg office. Focusing on operations transformation and restructuring projects, he left as an Engagement Manager five years later to co-found a non-profit educational start-up: Teach First Deutschland places bright graduates of all backgrounds in underprivileged schools to improve educational equity. Having to take care of the family forestry business in Western Germany, Mortimer stepped down as CEO but remains an active shareholder.

As an independent consultant in Wiesbaden (close to Frankfurt), he focuses on operational transformations and restructuring, e.g. in airline, automotive and logistics.

He loves piloting small planes and playing rock piano (to the dismay of his wife and three children).

Mortimer is happy to collaborate on projects with an operations focus in Europe
