Problem

Talent can drive ~80% of ops expenses but many People leaders are consumed by recruitment execution and people administration

“I get a lot of calls from CEOs and founders who say they want to hire a non-traditional CPO because they ‘hate’ traditional HR”.

“CPOs often lack the general management training to navigate these newer roles [that] are broader than more traditional HR positions”.

Thilo T. Winter, Operating Partner @ Atlantic Labs & Food Labs, former CPO @ Gorillas and Executive Manager @ Michael Page
In his role as an Operating Partner, Thilo brings leadership experience across the People, Venture Development, Business Development, Operations, and Expansion functions to actively support more than 100 portfolio companies — including the likes of formo, Zenjob and Choco. His approach to helping founders scale from the ground up builds upon past success advising and working with CEOs, founders, executives and people leaders across sectors and company stages, including Rocket Internet, Delivery Hero, and FlixBus. He blends an operator’s perspective - having built the people growth engine that scaled Gorillas from 450 to 11,000 employees in eight months as Chief People Officer - with the pattern recognition of a venture capital investor, and the business rigor of a COO. His experience is matched with his passion for operating models, organizational design and the future of work & education.
