He has spent the last number of years focused on a myriad of issues that range from industrial policy advice to Naypyitaw, political risk analyses and international relations in Asia to hands-on tasks of government affairs handling and market entry consulting for businesses of various industries.
Throughout his extensive career, Felix has called Southeast Asia and Europe home. He has built a substantial network and cross-sectoral macro-level understanding of current developments, particularly within Asia’s emerging economies, and he has spent years supporting or representing a number of different companies within Asia.
In addition, his expertise includes working with international governments on specific public sector areas of economic governance. These areas can include anything from trade policy to digitization support, and even business climate reform. Hereby, Felix has frequently worked within the United Nations system, with other donors and development partners ranging from e.g. GIZ to the World Bank.
Today, Felix is focused on his newest venture, Progress Asia Consulting, where he serves as Managing Director. At Progress Asia Consulting, Felix offers a wide range of consulting services for his clients within the public and private sector to take advantage of.

For businesses, the firm provides dedicated public and government affairs solutions. In doing so, they strive to help companies analyze and mitigate political risks and to learn just how to do more than simply conduct business through sustainability and philanthropy.
For governmental and development sector clients, Progress Asia Consulting is available to support private sector development efforts in terms of investment promotion, the development of trade-in-goods and trade-in-services, and in shepherding hands-on micro-level enterprise development tasks.
Most notable given his extensive public policy work, Felix has been academically trained as an industrial engineer and business professional from Technische Universität Berlin (Germany) and Toulouse Business School (France). In addition, Felix is a Rotary Peace Fellow and welcomes possibilities to make a positive impact through pro-bono efforts.
