Who is TK Asia Consult?
TK Asia Consult was established in May 2018 by Torsten Kaehlert. The idea behind this unique venture is to support SME in their positioning towards Financial Institutions, provide practical advice for workable use cases, help promote an account management culture and guide on market strategies.
At the same time Torsten is keen to make use of his passion for process effectiveness. Building on his longstanding experience he has developed a strong understanding that completing thorough process reviews & simplification efforts are key pre-requisites to successful digitization projects.
Torsten grew up in several countries in APAC, learned his trade and completed his studies in his native Germany before spending a large part of his career to date as a Banker in various local, regional and global business functions in Asia. In total he has lived 11 years in Japan – he speaks fluent Japanese – and about 20 years in Singapore.
After managing relationships with a broad range of Multinational Corporates in various locations he became increasingly involved in designing and implementing strategies for APAC, process effectiveness and business-oriented risk control.
He has a keen interest in relationship management, strategy development and implementation as well as process effectiveness.
Torsten is the Founder of TK Asia Consult and oversees all consulting activities.
