Meet the team

Manuela Ponikwar | Certified German Tax Advisor

Diplom-Kauffrau (FH), BA (Hons) European Business

After my dual international economics degree from Cambridge, England and Berlin and my side step to banking with Chase JP Morgen in London, I worked for 8 years at Ernst & Young, one of the big-4 leading audit and advisory firms, in the Munich office.

Working as an audit manager and company authorized signatory I largely dealt with international group entities in the area of technology and communication.

Five years ago I took the step to being self-employed with my own office, now working largely in the Munich area but also across Germany.
