“The current period in the Automotive Ecosystem is exciting, as everything is changing: The Asset (the car), the customer, the concept of usage vs ownership… In CVA’s AutoMobility Platform, we are addressing as a consequence a lot of transformational needs of key players such as OEMs, Auto-banks, Distributors, LeaseCos, Mobility Players… Key topics at the moment are how to transform into an “Electric Player”, concerning charging and batteries, but also integration into the larger energy Ecosystem. Another topic is how incumbents such as OEMs, Dealers… can become more like highly capitalized Startups (carwow, Auto1…) in terms of digital customer acquisition and management. We assist here the outstanding players in identifying and acquiring large companies and startups, in order to complete capabilities and competencies. It is likely that this “roller-coaster” ride will continue for the years to come !”

"From the very beginning of joining CVA, I was given the responsibility and ownership to shape the analyses and deliverables of the projects. This strong involvement gave me a great opportunity for personal development and allowed me to work closely with inspiring colleagues and clients from various regions. In such an engaging environment, every case solving is exciting and offers new learnings."
Hannes Podzun - Senior Consultant Berlin
"Every company claims to have a supportive working culture, but at CVA this is genuinely the case. Each consultant actively looks out for their colleagues and encourages them to thrive in their individual role, engendering a truly non-hierarchical and ‘family’ feel. While expectations are high and the learning curves steep, I have always felt supported by my peers both junior and senior, which has given me the confidence to push myself in new environments and take on responsibility. I feel incredibly fortunate to work at a company like CVA, where hard work is recognised, celebrated and rewarded."
Flora Leadley - Consultant London
"For me, CVA is the unique combination of things that rarely go together: An exclusive focus on C-level strategy projects for blue-chip companies, with the mindset, atmosphere and setup of a startup company. I switched to CVA from one of the largest strategy consulting firms in Europe and was surprised to see how the people-centric approach really makes a difference in growing your own capabilities and network. CVA does not ask “how is our process or approach” is, but rather “who is the right person to do it” – and that means we count on every one of our team members to grow personally and professionally." is the right person to do it” – and that means we count on every one of our team members to grow personally and professionally."
