Benjamin (Ben) Lüpschen, based in Duesseldorf, is a trusted advisor to leaders in large global corporations and the German Mittelstand, mainly in consumer-facing industries and adjacent areas. Furthermore, he is passionate about innovative and fast-growing start-ups, due to his own entrepreneurial background. His work focuses on executive search and succession planning in general management, sales, digital and supply chain/operations, but also on working with management teams on building purposeful cultures and organizations.

The key contributors to a company’s success are its leaders and culture. I enjoy helping my clients to make a real difference here.

Before joining Egon Zehnder, Benjamin cofounded and later successfully exited Innosquared, a globally active provider of knowledge services. As the Chief Sales and Marketing Officer, he was responsible for the company’s topline growth. Prior to that, Benjamin held a leadership role in the Group Strategy Unit at Henkel while doubling as the assistant to that company’s CEO. Earlier in his career, Benjamin worked as an in-house consultant in France, Sweden, and the U.K.

Benjamin earned a Diplom-Kaufmann business degree from the University of Cologne and a master’s in international management (MIM/CEMS) from HSG in St. Gallen, Switzerland and the University of Cologne. Outside of work, he enjoys spending time with his family, running, and skiing.
