Shareholder & Management
KBC is managed by four senior partner owners. All have more than 20 years consulting experience in the technology and mobility sectors. A team of partners and directors with industry and renowned management consultancy experience provide support. All are specialised in KBC´s consulting expertise in quality; research & development; procurement & production; after sales; and project management & digitalization.
Stefan Kemény – The Teamleader
Stefan Kemény has been the managing director of KBC since 1 April 2007.
From 1991 to 1997, Stefan Kemény studied mechanical engineering at the University of Clausthal and the University of Cardiff (Wales), while simultaneously studying Business Management and Economics at the University of Göttingen from 1993.
In 1997, he launched his consulting career for Mummert Consulting’s automotive segment in Hamburg. He was then called to Ernst & Young Consulting in Stuttgart , where he optimised product development of companies in the automotive and aviation industry. From there he joined the BMW Group in 2001 to develop the company’s internal management consultancy. As Principal, he managed the Programme Management and, acting as deputy manager, the Product Development departments.
His enthusiasm for technology repeatedly led Stefan Kemény to the automotive realm – be it as a vehicle armour mechanic, as a fan of vintage cars and naturally, as Management Consultant. And not least to the founding of KBC in 2007.
With his insights into technological segments, companies and their associated value-adding chains, Stefan Kemény is able to revert to a multitude of best practices. For him however, the decisive factors are listening, scrutinising and true understanding – to develop the best, individualised and therefore tailored solution for his clients and to realise their untapped potential.
Felix Feuerbach – The developer
Felix Feuerbach is a founding member and partner of KBC.
His passion is cars – he made this quite clear at a very early age. He already started his professional career while still at school and worked at a workshop for vintage cars and motorcycles. In 1994, he went into car racing, working as a mechanic and racing engineer during his university studies. He completed his studies in mechanical and automotive engineering in Great Britain in 1998.
Then, in 1999, he co-founded Automotive Solutions GmbH, where he was responsible for complete vehicle development as technical director. In 2000, Felix Feuerbach was nominated as sole managing director, whereupon he also assumed sole responsibility for the company’s sales.
In 2003, he joined Nexolab GmbH, BMW’s own internal management consultancy. He was again responsible for product development and production, but now within the scope of product and practical consulting projects within the BMW Group, as well as for their suppliers.
Felix Feuerbach has upheld his wealth of “racing stable” expertise over the years and even today, he regularly enjoys tinkering in his private workshop. His enthusiasm encompasses both automotive technology and the resulting business-related challenges. Passion creates strengths and priorities. His own clearly include the realisation of potentials in automotive development and production, as well as the associated components.
Maximilian Klee – The converter
Maximilian Klee is a founding member and partner of KBC.
After completing his general university entrance qualification and studies in business administration at the University of Passau, he started his career at BMW’s own management consultancy Nexolab GmbH in Munich.
Maximilian Klee gained his expertise from more than 10 years of accompanying large-scale projects at OEMs and suppliers in the automotive industry (axle systems, wheel rims and castings, among others), with particular emphasis on quality increase, controlling and programme strategy. In addition to his profession, he regularly conducts studies on a range of topics around “Quality, Reliability and Warranty Cost Optimisation”.
However, Maximilian Klee only sees experience and well-founded business-economical knowledge as building blocks on the way to his clients’ maximum potential realisation. He places equal emphasis on enthusiasm for complex issues, which results in a natural hands-on mentality within the team, as well as in the delight of implementing solutions and exceeding expectations.
Georg Huber – The Technician
Georg Huber joined KBC as manager in 2008 and is partner and shareholder since 2013.
His passion for technology led Georg Huber from model building and tinkering with his scooter during his youth all the way to studying mechanical engineering at the TU in Munich and then on to the English power loom industry, where he gained initial experience as project coordinator in a management position.
Upon his return to Germany, he joined the family-owned development company for mechatronic systems as project manager and management assistant, not only gaining expertise in the high-speed systems, but also being involved in the development of interdisciplinary strategies and decision-making processes.
Enthusiasm for all things automotive led Georg Huber to apply for a position with the development management consultancy [bu:st]-Automotive in 2005, where he was the Senior Consultant responsible for numerous projects in complete vehicle development and the Product Manager responsible for service development and marketing of reporting concepts within the development process
He ascribes the fact that his projects always realise untapped potentials and repeatedly and significantly surpass the specified targets to his multidisciplinary competence, which permits him to discuss issues with both technicians and business economists on an equal footing – something he regards as the very foundation of partnership cooperation.
