Nico Marzian

“Man in the Middle” situated in Frankfurt, Germany. Strategist with more than twenty years of industrial experience, a proven design-minded approach, expertise in collaboration beyond all kinds of borders and stakeholder integration in value-oriented processes of progress.

Industry 4.0 (or the Industrial Internet of Things) is about interconnecting industrial processes via digital networks enhanced by integrated value-added applications.
As such processes are still not and will not so soon (if ever) be fully automated but rather heavily relying on manpower, there is no way that people in those areas with a multitude of beneficial contributions to make should not be wired likewise. This will be the essence of Work 4.0 and Society 4.0, too.

Without “People in the Middle” (i.e. “Women and Men in the Middle”) to bring all contributors together, assisting, inspiring and thereby empowering them in various ways, this would be difficult to achieve.

Main Areas of Expertise Covered

Strategy, Conception & Design Lead

Communication & Message Creation
