Isabel Karstedt loves the fast pace of e-commerce. She sees constant change not as a challenge but as an opportunity for growth and honing the competitive edge. But she also knows that a marketing and sales flash-in-the-pan is not enough to establish a long-term foundation for a successful e-commerce expansion. So Isabel digs deep into our clients’ process environment, always looking for even better ways to connect the units involved and for visible improvements for the end customer of all relevant e-commerce processes.

In next life:

Vita:

Isabel Karstedt is a senior consultant at eccelerate. 

Inspired by the growth of online retail, Isabel started her e-commerce career in buying and later in business development at Zalando. There, she learned the meaning of explosive growth and enhanced her knowledge of business management with practical and multi-faceted insights into process control, particularly along the logistics value chain. She was able to use this experience in her position of supply chain manager for the start-up Kiveda when she operatively guided their go-live process. 

Isabel holds a double bachelor’s degree with a major in international business from EBS Business School and Tongji University in Shanghai. After gaining some initial work experience in the start-up jungle of Berlin, she decided to obtain a master’s degree in international business with a major in entrepreneurship and SME management from Maastricht University. 

 

When Isabel is not involved in optimizing processes, she likes all kinds of travel – near or far, action trip or relaxing sojourn. She also likes to stay active in her free time by climbing, jogging or skiing, and on occasion delights her friends and colleagues by trying out new baking recipes.
