Banks and asset managers still have not cracked how to fundamentally manage cost. They will need to learn everything in parallel now: standardize, automate, digitize and rearrange the value chain, if they are to stay in business.
Frank Heideloff, a Managing Director with Alvarez & Marsal in Frankfurt and Hamburg, is part of the European Financial Industry Advisory Services team focusing on banking restructuring and performance improvement.

He brings more than 16 years of experience in corporate and business unit strategy, restructuring and operational improvement both as a line manager and a consultant.

Mr. Heideloff has expertise in developing and implementing market strategies for growing the top-line, as well as improving structures, processes, systems and headcount deployment to improve sustainability of financial institutions and to increase shareholder value.

His line positions include a management board role at one of the largest conglomerates in the Middle East, where he was responsible for creating several new businesses and entering international markets across divisions. He also served as the Head of Corporate Development and Equity Assets for one of the German Landesbanks, leading capital raises, preparing the bank for a planned IPO and drafting its EU restructuring plan after the start of the global financial crisis.

As a consultant, he has focused on financial institutions and private equity companies both pre- and post-acquisition across different industries. He has also worked within the auto, chemicals and pharmaceutical industries, and his experience spans across Europe, the Middle East, South-East Asia and Japan.

Before A&M, Mr. Heideloff served as a senior partner with Roland Berger Strategy Consultants, working with banks and asset managers across Europe and the Middle East on a variety of transformational topics ranging from post-merger integrations and EU restructuring programs to headcount reduction and process improvement topics. Most recently he assisted one of the Greek systemic banks through its EU restructuring plan negotiations, a major headcount reduction program and defining a retail growth strategy with focus on asset gathering products.

Earlier in his career, he worked at Bain & Company in Europe and Asia across different industries, focusing on improving financial results.

Mr. Heideloff earned a master's degree in management with a focus on organization, strategy and finance from the University of St. Gallen in Switzerland and a master’s degree in international management from the Community of European Management Schools. He earned a PhD in business from the Technical University Chemnitz where he focused on innovation management. He was a scholarship recipient of Studienstiftung des deutschen Volkes during his studies. A German national, he is fluent in German and English and possesses a good working knowledge of French.

Mr. Heideloff founded ROTEX in Germany, the organization of former Rotary exchange students that supports inbound and outbound exchanges. He currently serves as a mentor to scholars of the Studienstiftung and the CEMS European Master's program.
