Founder & Managing Partner

Michael Hauger, Founder and Managing Partner of AURES CORDIS GmbH

After more than 25 years in leadership and executive positions in corporate communications, I started my own business in 2022 to bring together my business understanding and experience in complex organisations with my passion for coaching, change and communications. I am supporting individuals, teams and organisations in change and transformation processes as an independent consultant. My approach goes beyond classic solution-focused business coaching and focuses on permanently effective adaptive change.

I am an ICF-certified Integral Development Coach (New Ventures West / Thirdspace). In summer 2024, I am graduating from INSEAD EMC, a part-time two-years Master’s programme in Change and Transformation for senior executives. I have successfully participated in the INSEAD In-Board programme for non-executive directors. I am a graduate engineer (Dipl-Ing.) in aerospace engineering (University of Stuttgart) and in my early career I also obtained a Controller’s Diploma from the Controller Academy in Gauting. 

In my roles at EADS/Airbus, MTU Aero Engines and over the last 15 years as Head of Corporate Communications at KION Group, change and transformation projects have always been at the center of my activities: the Europeanisation of the aerospace industry, the sale of two companies to private equity (including the complete PE cycle), in-depth financial and economic restructurings, numerous plant closures, three successful IPOs, global M&A activities with subsequent PMI, strategic reorganisations and digitalisation initiatives, as well as the development and implementation of new corporate cultures and values, and internal mentoring and coaching of managers, C-level and other executives and teams.
