Enabling Lasting Growth



ABOUT ELG Adler Consulting

I have established ELG Adler Consulting as I believe that as the consumer landscape develops, there is a need for companies to develop a concept that reflects the changes but at the same time, to secure that the implementation is clear and understood by the consumer (and co-workers).

The ELG Adler business idea is: "Supporting a successful and consistent retail concept implementation, as well as identifying opportunities and supporting the customer experience when working with retail concept in different markets."

Thereby "Enabling Lasting Growth".

I have leadership experience in a number of positions and industries. The last company before starting up ELG Adler Consulting has been IKEA of which the last 13 years were at Inter IKEA Systems (franchisor and owner of the concept) where I have worked with establishing IKEA in new countries as well as developing processes and methods to enable the retailers to operate successfully from the opening day. The last years I spent working specifically with implementation, follow-up and transferring knowledge of the IKEA Concept in IKEA stores worldwide, so that the stores secure the optimal customer experience.

I am also a partner at Sephia Group contributing within the area of consulting and facilitating, as well as associated with working together with them on defined projects.
