Gravning Crew

An essential factor of our success lies in the unique composition of our crew of authentic and individual personalities. Gravning’s crew consists of women and men, generalists and specialists, young and “young at heart” colleagues. We believe in diversity. Here, gender, origin, faith, disabilities, age and sexual identity play no role for us.

The crew combines in-depth knowledge of the financial sector and years of project experience with a wide range of methodological expertise.

Our crew members have worked successfully in all three banking groups. But our curiosity also drives us beyond Germany’s borders from time to time. For us, “banking beyond borders” means not only breaking through the rigid boundaries of banking, but also literally looking beyond national borders.

We are particularly proud of our expertise in payments and the knowledge of our crew in the many other areas of banking and project business.
