It’s the job of Christoph and his team to ensure that McKesson Europe has the right technology in place across the Group to help attract and manage the best talent, and ensure that all employees have access to the right information at the right time for their job.

Christoph sees technology as playing a pivotal role in team collaboration and talent management across the 13 McKesson Europe countries, helping employees to provide the best service to millions of customers every day.

Growing up in Weimar - the home of German enlightenment and the Bauhaus movement - the father of one small daughter joined McKesson Europe in 2013 as Project Manager for Portal Technologies. Christoph’s experience has been mainly in media systems and software engineering, and in 2015, he was promoted to his current role as Head of Governance Applications.

Shaping the way our teams can work together even better is really exciting. It’s the best thing about my job.

No two days are the same for Christoph – some days he’s busy with meetings and workshops with the business partners in the McKesson Europe countries to understand how his team can support them. Other days his time is taken up with looking at ways to make the services his team provide even better.

For example, the team are currently preparing for the rollout of a global collaboration platform that provides McKesson Europe employees with the information they need at the touch of a button.

As a natural born multi-tasker, Christoph loves connecting with colleagues across different countries and time zones, and juggling multiple projects at the same time. His job also means frequent trips abroad which he enjoys. However, Christoph tries not to be away from home for longer than two nights a week so there’s plenty of family time, and he can indulge in his passion for woodwork including creating furniture from dried timber, or spend time cooking for family and friends.
