Markus Pflitsch

It is rare to meet someone whose expertise spans both the scientific and financial sectors, but Markus Pflitsch, co-founder and Chairman of Terra Quantum AG, is an experienced CERN Quantum Physicist, senior financial executive and deep tech entrepreneur.

As a graduate physicist he began his professional career at the Boston Consulting Group (BCG) in Europe and North America, and went on to hold several top management positions (CEO, CFO, COO) in international financial corporations (Deutsche Bank, UniCredit), as well as owner-managed digital and high-tech companies.

Markus is the co-owner of a large German multi-family office and senior advisor to private equity funds. He is also a member of the “Baden-Badener Unternehmergespräche” (BBUG), a German institution which helps cultivate the next generation of executive leaders by bringing together decision makers from business, politics and society.
