Dr. Tanja WielgoßMulti-board member, co-founder of FC Viktoria Berlin, and
most recently CEO and technical director of Vattenfall Wärme.
Dr. Tanja Wielgoß, a political scientist who obtained her doctorate in Germany and France, built Germany’s airline association as its managing director. She was a partner at the international management consulting firm Kearney and served as the CEO of the Berlin City Cleaning Authority, where she made her mark by leading the organization to take over not only street cleaning but also park cleaning, and for the first time in its history, hiring women in waste disposal.
She then served as the CEO and technical director of Vattenfall Wärme, where she was responsible for making district heating synonymous with sustainable, carbon-neutral heat, not only in the capital city. Currently, Dr. Tanja Wielgoß is a co-founder of “Germany’s most exciting football project,” FC Viktoria Berlin, as well as a multi-board member. Among other roles, she serves on the board of the French company fifteen, which operates e-bike-sharing systems in many French cities, including Paris and Marseille, as well as being active in Vancouver and Helsinki. (Tanja believes that diversity also means a mix of different age groups, academic disciplines, and interests. This is certainly an important starting point for discussions during herCAREER.)
