"Don't go where the puck is but where it is going to be!" – Wayne Gretzky's motto also guides Christian Böllhoff's actions: Creating solutions today for the challenges of tomorrow – future-oriented, energised, and confident.

Christian Böllhoff is interested in change and is committed to taking personal responsibility for making a difference. He believes that transformation requires long-term strategies, but also clearly defined milestones. Now, more than ever, it is vital that the transitions connecting the present with the future are highlighted. New opportunities can be created from the challenges of digitalisation, decarbonisation, demographic change, and de-globalisation.

Since 2003, Böllhoff has been the managing partner and CEO of Prognos AG, Basel, whose mission is to enable informed decisions for a liveable future.

The pressing issues of our time demand curiosity and experience, instinct and expertise, a keen eye, and a willingness to challenge yourself and your past successes. Through his contributions to leading media, podcast appearances and key note speeches, Böllhoff offers courage for the future.

Anyone who knows Christian Böllhoff knows – he is firmly convinced that confidence is your best companion. As an Arminia Bielefeld fan, this conviction has helped him time and again on the roller coaster ride up and down the league tables. A down-to-earth East Westphalian and half Upper Bavarian, he loves the Rhine in Basel, the Karwendel and the Bielefelder Alm in equal measure and enjoys living in Berlin with his family.

In addition, Christian Böllhoff brings his know-how to various supervisory and advisory board mandates, primarily in family-owned companies. Civic engagement is also a matter close to his heart.
