I am Stefan Derichs...
...father of two daughters, passionate outdoorsman, avid traveler and founder of Ayudantes.
I am known to be direct and decisive, keen to tackle and solve complex problems and to describe them in straightforward terms. After studying engineering in Aachen (RWTH), I spent a number of years working internationally with the strategy practice of a global management consultancy, before founding Ayudantes in 2006. As a business founder and architect, I understand how crucial it
is to take a comprehensive organisational change perspective. It spans strategy, processes and structures, but also addresses relational interdependencies and their dynamics in complex transformation environments. Away from work, I enjoy being outdoors, whether it is doing sport, going on three week-long hikes, working my garden, or just sitting by an open fire at night.
