Yves Gorat Stommel
Deputy Head Function at Evonik Digital
Yves Gorat Stommel is currently the deputy head of the function Evonik Digital, as well as the head of the Cognitive Solutions team, with a strong focus on setting-up and implementing a comprehensive, company-wide Artificial Intelligence and data analysis strategy.
In his current function, Yves’ motivation stems from bringing together people, technology and positive change. By continuously questioning, improving and re-imagining operational and business processes – amongst others by looking at the company through the “lens” of enabling and disruptive technologies like Artificial Intelligence – value is created for both the company and its employees. This does not only require identifying, benchmarking and implementing best practices, but more importantly targeted communication, linking knowledge and an emphasis on global instead of local mindsets and approaches.
Through his international exposure as an expat (China and US) and through his work assignments, Yves has gained a deeper understanding of (and growing interest in) intercultural and international work environments. Yves holds both an engineering (Dipl.-Ing.) and PhD (Dr.-Ing.) degree from the University of Cottbus, Germany, as well as an MBA degree from the Euro*MBA Consortium.
