QSID's mission is to support medium sized industrial companies through their digital transformation. Success means further development of the core business, building up a new digital business, and fostering strong interaction between these two. We make it happen through mentoring and advice at C-Level, defining the focus and pragmatic, action-oriented support through implementation.
The founder and CEO of QSID Digital Advisory, Markus Schmidt, has long experience leading globalization and digital transformation at BOSCH and Valeo. Before founding QSID, his last corporate role was as Executive Vice President at BOSCH Automotive Electronics. Over six years, he successfully developed the core business and built innovative ventures through corporate start-ups. This front-line experience gave Markus Schmidt deep insight into the opportunities and challenges of digital transformation for industrial companies, from defining strategic direction through to concrete implementation. Since leaving BOSCH he has gained achieved complementary experience of digital transformation as a partner of Barkawi Management Consulting, on the Advisory Council of Armira Partners and as a keynote speaker and lecturer at universities including Hochschule Sankt Gallen and numerous industry events. Since 2019 Markus Schmidt is a Non Executive Director (NED) of Fashion 3, a business of Mulliez Group and of Sintex NP.
