Who is your hero?
My daughter – every day she shows me how to see the world (again) with new eyes.
About Sven Hofmann
Since May 2019, Sven Hofmann has led the Finance and Controlling team at the BMW Foundation Herbert Quandt, based in the Munich office.
Sven grew up in a tranquil wine-growing region in Württemberg. After his business studies, he moved to his dream city: Munich. Before Sven joined the BMW Foundation, he worked for 18 years in crisis and bankruptcy management – including for almost eight years as a business consultant in the field of restructuring automotive suppliers at PricewaterhouseCoopers. From 2013 until 2019, he contributed his experience as a crisis manager to the supplier network of the BMW Group. Projects have taken him all over the world, often to New York and Tokyo. During his professional career, Sven experienced not only the economic crises of companies but also their effects on employees and staff, which left a lasting impression.
After the birth of his daughter, he increasingly realized that he wanted to make it possible for her to live in a livable and free world. This also inspired him to get to know better the BMW Foundation and especially its activities to help achieve the Sustainable Development Goals of the UN 2030 Agenda.
Sven enjoys his free time with his family and his friends and loves to go for a hike in the mountains. Sometimes, if time permits, he can also be spotted on the beach volleyball court or playing foosball.
