Sylvia Franzke
VP Operational Excellence

Sylvia works at Haufe-umantis Spain as the Director of Operations. She has grown the business from 13 to currently 43 people.


One of her responsibilities and challenges is to make Haufe Spain known in the Barcelona startup scene and to attract and retain employees to our business. She is therefore working on employer branding and am constantly looking how to improve our HR processes to attract and keep employees.



A further part is administration such as defining processes and make sure that all processes are known by all and run smoothly. Further, processes need to constantly be checked and improved. This is part of her daily job of running a small-size company. Since starting she has simplified processes, found new tools and service providers and is improving the processes when needed..
