Nicolas Pfahl

Senior consultant
Been with cormens since 2018

Consulting focus:
Leadership, sales, change, coaching

Nicolas is a passionate athlete. He wants to achieve change, not just play a few passes. His motto: Game, set, match. His management experience allows him to quickly transfer theoretical knowledge into practice. Speaking of exchanging shots. Even though Nicolas is also a lawyer, or perhaps precisely because of that, he likes to speak up for opposing opinions. And he does so very diplomatically. The multiple perspectives make conversations with the consultant so enriching. Nicolas also practices the systematisation of documents like a sport. Niki is never far away from where everything is neatly filed away.
