Opex Analytics is excited to be able to open a new office in Cologne,Germany. This office will help us better support clients throughout Europe.
Franz-Josef Toelle will be leading the office and will be joining Opex Analytics as the Managing Director of Europe. “We are excited to have Franz-Josef join our team” said Ganesh Ramakrishna, Partner and Co-Founder of Opex Analytics. “More of our current clients are asking about projects in Europe and some European firms are directly approaching us for our optimization and data science capabilities.”
“I was looking for a way to bring all the exciting developments in optimization, machine learning, and artificial intelligence to firms in Europe” said Franz-Josef. “I found Opex Analytics and they were exactly the kind of firm I wanted to join. They are doing many cutting-edge problems, similar to the ones I worked on at Bayer.”
At Bayer, Franz-Josef headed up their in-house advanced analytics consulting group for 20 years. The team had 85 people and had strategic and operational accountability. Prior to Bayer, he completed his Ph.D. in Theoretical Physics and has published more than fifteen journal articles and book contributions about optimization in supply chain management and worked on applying and translating new research results (like Data Mining, Machine Learning, Robust Planning, Network Optimization, Advanced Forecasting, and Artificial Intelligence).
