As the oldest son of the “Krups” Family (coffee- and espresso-makers), Frieder entered the family company following his education at MIT and the Stanford Business School. After 6 years, he became technical director, leading 2,000 people at locations worldwide.
After the sale of Krups, Frieder founded a flourishing logistics consulting company, helped turn around of an international consumer goods firm, and built a company supplying innovative logistics technology. When this company failed at the end of 2000, he entered a period of self-discovery and transformation.
Frieder now coaches and supports business leaders in their efforts to move their companies, their relationships, and their personal lives to higher, more fulfilling levels. He also devotes his time and talent to finding effective and replicable ways to alleviate poverty, inspiring successful business leaders who are looking for ways to “give back.”
Frieder has been instrumental in building up the Economic Development Network within the Young Presidents’ Organization, and has led numerous YPO forum retreats and Life Transition seminars.
Frieder is a citizen of the world with homes both in Europe and in the Middle East.
