Andreas Pratz is partner and is driving our Digital Payments team across Europe, Middle East and Africa. He also leads our Financial Institutions Group in Germany, Austria and Switzerland, with a personal specialization in retail banking.
His personal specialization in retail banking, with a focus on sales and operations, rests on a solid foundation. From 1990 to 1992 he did enjoy a trainee program at Deutsche Bank and benefit from the extraordinary opportunity to apply this early knowledge in the post-reunification transformation in an Eastern German branch. He has also had the opportunity to work with most of the larger Central and Eastern European banking groups a decade later in their post-millenial integration and growth strategies mostly in retail banking.
Asset management is another area of interest, not only as a consultant where he has served some of the larger Austrian and German asset and wealth managers in strategy and organisational transformation. He also holds the role of Finance Director of the A.T. Kearney Pension Trust e.V. which is responsible for the corporate pension scheme of the German A.T. Kearney employees and alumni. During his tenure (since 2007), assets under management have doubled and investments been significantly diversified.
Andreas is a member of the International Bankers Forum and of the Frankfurt Payments Network and acts as Finance director of a childcare non-profit association in Munich.
