Frank Hegenbart


Frank has over 20 years of experience in the areas of purchasing, production, supply chain and strategic product cost and innovation management.

He advises on growth topics as well as restructuring issues and programs to increase the operational performance of industrial companies. In addition, he works on strategic growth areas in the fields of renewable energies, mobility and sustainability.

His clients include large medium-sized industrial companies as well as internationally operating corporations and private equity companies. In particular, the optimal design of the cooperation between core corporate functions as well as with customers and suppliers in the critical areas of industrial value chains are the neuralgic points for him, which are essential for the future-oriented and competitive positioning of industrial companies.

Before Frank joined the ADVYCE-team, he shaped the consulting spectrum of various top management consulting firms. As an engineer with industrial experience and an internationally experienced consultant, he managed more than 100 projects worldwide, both in Europe and the Middle East as well as in North and South America and Asia.

Frank is married and has one daughter. Whenever possible, you meet him on the golf course. In winter he is drawn to the Alps or Rocky Mountains for skiing.


Innovation and progress arise from questioning the existing. Every change or development is triggered by skepticism about the familiar.

We consultants are constantly searching for new answers to the critical questions that move and change our society and economy. This search for new and better things together with our clients is what drives me personally every day.

Which characteristic do friends like about you?

I think and hope it is my reliability. When I promise something, I keep it.

Your favourite thing to do after work?

Actually, that’s when I like to have a good meal with my family and good friends.

Where do you gather your energy?

That is very different. In the summer with a round of golf, in the autumn in the South Tyrolean mountains, in the winter on the ski slopes and actually on every journey where I encounter something new and inspiring.

Your motto of life?

Since my school days I have admired Johann Wolfgang von Goethe because he was a multi-talented man in so many fields from science, politics to literature.

So my motto comes from him: “Only he who deserves freedom like life, who has to conquer it daily” (Faust II, Act 5)
