Driving future ground mobility and advanced air mobility topics with organizations across the whole mobility ecosystem

Benedikt is an associate partner at the firm’s Frankfurt office and member of the McKinsey Center for Future Mobility (MCFM). Since joining the firm as a consultant in 2016, he works primarily in the MCFM with focus on advanced air mobility, micromobility, and autonomous driving. He coleads the McKinsey’s advanced air mobility and micromobility initiatives in Europe.

Recent examples of his work include the following:

  • evaluating market potential of autonomous flying taxis and go-to-market strategy for a leading European premium OEM
  • quantifying future urban aerial-mobility use cases and business models for a flying car start-up and Asian automotive OEM
  • assessing the drone-delivery market, which includes regulation, competitive landscape, and market size in the United States
  • evaluating the shared mobility-market development and business opportunities for a leading investment company
  • assessing the micromobility opportunity for a leading mobility group
  • quantifying the impact of new mobility on future car sales for a European automotive supplier
  • developing the autonomous driving, connected cars, electrified vehicles, and shared mobility strategy (ACES) for an automotive OEM
  • evaluating future mobility-business opportunities for a leading oil and gas company
  • analyzing the future autonomous-driving market development, impact of automated vehicles (AV) on cities and closed, confined areas (like airports, ports, or factories), potential AV business models, and go-to-market strategies for a German automotive supplier
