Advancing digitalisation as a data translator.
Tristan Flüchter first joined Mercedes-Benz in HR marketing after completing his dual business administration studies. His interest in the field of business analytics then took him to Dublin for a master programme. Since graduating, he has been working at Mercedes-Benz Management Consulting (MBMC), the internal strategy consulting team for Mercedes-Benz AG. His job is to use data-based solutions to advance digitalisation at the company. In his interview, Tristan discusses further development, logic, diversity and his hobby under the stars.
Tristan Flüchter in convinced that our future will be increasingly connected: cars, roads, traffic lights and buildings send and receive data, communicate with each other and make our life "smart". It's no wonder that he was appointed co-author of an academic paper on mobility in the context of smart cities during his master's programme in Business Analytics from August 2021 to August 2022. He is a native of Essen, Germany, who now lives in Göttelfingen and appreciates that the rural setting in the town of 900 allows him to pursue his hobby of astrophotography. The space atlas he was gifted at the age of six sparked his fascination with far-off galaxies. When the NEOWISE comet was visible in 2020, he even managed to convince his mother to go to the countryside with him at 4:00 a.m. to seize the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see the heavenly body with his own eyes.
