Leo Vogel Consultancy and Interim ManagementReady to bring your great ideas to life !
I am Leo Vogel, consultant and interim manager with a long track record in product development, program management and people management. During my career I worked in sales (bid manager, solution consultant), in productmarketing (proposition marketeer) and in product management. Always with a focus on the business to business market. Last six years I was leading teams as a people manager and as a “senior supplier” I lead the development, build and implementation of great new products and services for the B2B market. Because of this, I very well know the (business to business) customer facing side of the business as well as technical teams developing and maintaining the services. I offer my services as interim productmanager, product owner, business analist, programma manager and as interim team manager.

Available as interim:
My product background is mainly in telecom for the business market. This gives me a good foundation for other products and services servicing business customers. In addition to Telecom, think of Utilities (Energy and Gas), Automotive, Mobility, etc.
I am a certified SAFe® 5 Product Owner / Product Manager and also educated in ‘design thinking’.
Business analyst, Program manager
I am experienced in connecting teams with different interests about content and direction. Stakeholder management and understanding processes and systems are important to me in order to get to the core and to determine the right project scope within (technical) limitations and available investment budget.
Last 6 years I led teams of product and project managers. The team size varied from 10 to 25 (incl. contracters) and I was responsible for HR, budget and member the department management MT. In this role I was also responsible for the successful delivery of projects (appr. 40 projects in parallel, with a total annual budget of 25 M Capex and 10 M Opex).
I like to bring something extra to the organization of the client during an assignment. I have regularly hired program managers and project managers and was always looking for candidates who could add something. For example because their experience was in a different industry. Of course I take care of the knowledge transfer to internal colleagues, so that after completing an assignment I can also say goodbye with confidence.
Leo worked for me for about 7 years of which the last few years (after a promotion) succesfully managing a team of program managers delivering cool new products, services and streamlined processes at Vodafone. It has always been a pleasure having him in my team, with his calmness, can-do attitude, service orientation and being a very broadly skilled telecoms professional. As a line manager, he was a very good team coach, creating a high performing team.
Nico managed Leo directly
Leo Vogel heb ik ervaren als een eigentijdse manager, die binnen de afgesproken kaders ruimte geeft aan zijn professionals om zelfstandig invulling te geven aan hun werkzaamheden. Zijn mensgerichte authentieke aanpak haalt het beste naar boven bij zijn professionals. Daarnaast staat hij er voor zijn collega’s als het moet. Leo heb ik ervaren als een teamplayer, die richting geeft aan zijn team en eigenaarschap neemt voor zijn handelen.
