Ballueder Partners
We hired Volker to put a team together in the German market. Not only did he deliver on the promise, the team he hired subsequently overachieved targets. As much as he is hands on, knows what to do, he is an excellent team builder and coach. I have no hesitation to hire him again to build successful teams and coach them to success.
Paul Thompson, CRO Blis Media


Volker Ballueder held commercial and operational leadership roles, managing teams of up to 60 and revenues in excess of 10m within the advertising and technology industry. He has grown pan European businesses, turned around businesses and, as a native German, covers the two biggest economies in Europe.

With an analytical mind, the right attitude and a growth mindset, Volker has the right skill set to help you to expand your business in today’s world. Whether this is to benchmark your digital strategy and (programmatic) technology stack or to figure out how to strategic position  your product in today’s ever changing digital world.

His commercial awareness paired with a strong technical understanding offers a wide ranged experience to his clients. Throughout his appointments, Volker gained an in depth understanding of how agencies, publishers, and brands can maximise the opportunity of digital and technology.


I hired Volker as a strategic advisor. His input regarding product and marketing proved invaluable to the company and helped us massively to attract the right attention in the industry. I would happily hire him again for any role involving product positioning and goto market strategy.

I have worked with Volker for almost 10 years. He has been a trusted advisor in several capacities for me. First, when I started in ad tech and media he mentored me through my master’s thesis into my first years on the job. As a first-time entrepreneur, I could always count on Volker confronting me with uncomfortable truths about myself. Questioning our approach, holding me accountable. Being there in good times and especially the bad ones when I learned about being lonely as a leader. He is what I would call an ‘honest coach’. Someone who you can trust to drive you forward. Volker’s advice has been invaluable to me over the past few years and I will continue to work with him.
