Stefan Dietrich is Managing Partner of Stefan Dietrich Consulting LLC, a New York-based
technology consulting firm that focuses primary on technology strategies for complex
initiatives and investment advisory for fast growing startup companies. He has held senior
executive roles at AXA, Reuters, and Deutsche Bank defining innovative strategies and
delivering complex technology solutions. Dr. Dietrich developed groundbreaking workplace
technology strategies as a Managing Director in the Office of the CTO at AXA, which included
simplifications of related internal security, privacy and compliance frameworks and
technology architectures, leading to consolidation and higher efficiency. As a result, AXA
adopted a modern, cloud-based (SaaS), “bring-your-own-device” (BYOD) strategy two years
before its competitors.

Dr. Dietrich received a Ph.D. in Aerospace Engineering and Computer Science from the
University of Stuttgart and served as a Postdoctoral Fellow and faculty member at Cornell
University. His thought leadership on strategic technology issues is sought out by large
research firms and the news media, including The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times,

business unit. SD Global Advisors works with clients on strategies to increase their revenue
by focusing on globalization, product innovation, talent and business development, as well as
the execution of these new initiatives.

During his Otis career, Mr. Diehl held both line P&L management positions, as well as other
senior-level strategy and product development roles. For example, prior to leaving UTC, he
was the VP of UTC’s Integrated Building Systems, an innovative initiative where he led the
collaboration of UTC’s independent commercial business units to serve major global projects
and customers. In his last assignment at Otis Elevator, Mr. Diehl was Senior Vice President
for Strategy and Development, where he was responsible for Otis’ global marketing, business
