Tom Reuner

Managing Partner, Business Operations Strategy and M&A Advisory

Tom Reuner is Managing Partner, Business Operations Strategy and M&A Advisory. Tom is responsible for driving strategic engagements in business operations, IT as well as M&A advisory. The responsibilities range from research over consulting to business development. This involves advising clients on the formulation of strategies, guiding them through methodologies and the analysis of research findings, as well as interactive liaison with the client throughout the course of projects from initial meeting to conclusion. Tom is driving thought-leadership and frameworks across business operations and in particular Intelligent Automation and Artificial Intelligence. Automation cuts across the whole gamut ranging from RPA to Autonomics to Cognitive Computing and AI. This includes increasingly the intersections of unstructured data, analytics, and Cognitive Automation while mobilizing the HfS analysts to research Intelligent Automation dynamics across specific industries and business functions.

Tom’s deep understanding of the dynamics of this market comes from having held senior positions with Gartner, Ovum and KPMG Consulting in the UK and with IDC in Germany. He is frequently quoted in the leading business and national press, has appeared on TV, and is a regular presenter at conferences.
 
Tom has a PhD in History from the University of Göttingen in Germany.
 
He lives in London with his wife, and in his spare time he tries to improve his culinary skills to distract him from the straining experience of being a Spurs supporter.
