About me

After 20 years in the pharmaceutical Industry I decided in 2018 that I would like to use my knowledge and experience in Supply Chain Management, Quality Management, Supplier Management including national and international Audits (ISO 9001, ISO13485, ISO 15378, GMP, cGMP) and Project Management to provide support as an independent Management Consultant in various industries.

Why Merwald Consulting?

You will get from me a solution and support that is tailored to your organization. This is necessary in order to address specific issues and not to burden your organization unnecessarily. Your organisation should gain experience from the topics, understand the issues and thus develop further.
