CV

Dr. Henrik Czurda

Dr. Henrik Czurda - owner of NOMANO - is a senior, top-management professional at the intersection of strategy, technology, and innovation in a rapidly digitizing world. Henrik combines integrity with passion. He is a dynamic, implementation-oriented strategist and implementer. He applies strong analytical skills combined with empathy to meet defined objectives. 
 

Henrik can identify, embrace, and enhance new concepts, as well as manage change. He is self-motivated and willing to go the extra mile. As a former partner of a strategy consultant company in the Financial Industry, he has a robust C-level network with primary strengths in two areas: strategy development and visionary structuring of technology based new business opportunities and products/services based on customer needs. He can also excite customers about existing services and develop new product ideas. In his roles, he used his strong sales skills to systematically improve the sales approach of his teams.
 

Before NOMANO, he managed the Bank-driven Innovation at SIX with a strong focus on selling projects and pivoting them to address real market needs. Drawing from the expertise he acquired as a member of the leadership team of Innovation & Digital (SIX), and as a former strategy consultant and CFO, Henrik Czurda is the ideal person to address complex problems that are sometimes intractable for individuals with a more limited background. He is a successful consultant (Boydak Strategy Consulting, The Boston Consulting Group, Arthur Andersen, Price Waterhouse), insurance expert (Swiss Re), and banking professional (Bank Julius Bär), along with skills in the restructuring of an industrial company (Spemot AG).
 

Henrik holds a Ph.D. from the University of Zurich, Switzerland, Faculty of Economics, Business Administration and Information Technology, and is the author of two books and several scientific contributions in the field of technology innovation.
