Antegrad GmbH was foun­ded in 2005 by Gerhard Becker. After stu­dy­ing Com­pu­ter Sci­ence and Busi­ness Admi­nis­tra­ti­on, he gai­ned his first ope­ra­tio­nal manage­ment and deve­lo­p­ment expe­ri­ence in an inter­na­tio­nal­ly ope­ra­ting com­pa­ny in the che­mi­cal indus­try. As Head of Sup­ply Chain Manage­ment, he con­tri­bu­t­ed signi­fi­cant­ly to the rapid growth of the com­pa­ny and was ent­rus­ted with deve­lo­ping the group’s ope­ra­ting faci­li­ties and sub­si­dia­ries in Ger­ma­ny and abroad, and with impro­ving the orga­niz­a­ti­on and processes.

In 1998, Gerhard Becker then trans­fer­red to the health­ca­re sec­tor. As Direc­tor of Ope­ra­ti­ons and Stra­te­gic CFO of the Uni­ver­si­ty Medi­cal Cent­re Ham­burg-Eppen­dorf (UKE), he play­ed a key role in the deve­lo­p­ment of the faci­li­ty. In addi­ti­on to incre­a­sing effi­ci­en­cy in admi­nis­tra­ti­on and opti­mi­zing “inter­nal ope­ra­ti­ons,” his main tasks were deve­lo­ping the stra­te­gic mas­ter plan, finan­cing it and plan­ning the almost com­ple­ted new con­struc­tion of the UKE facilities.

After a brief inte­rim as Com­mer­cial Direc­tor of Düs­sel­dorf Uni­ver­si­ty Hos­pi­tal, Gerhard Becker took on the dif­fi­cult mis­si­on of res­cuing the health­ca­re com­pa­ny Medi­clin AG, which had fal­len into eco­no­mic dif­fi­cul­ties after going public during the seve­re rehab’ cri­sis occur­ring at that time.
After the Medi­clin Group had been suc­cess­ful­ly rest­ruc­tu­red, Becker foun­ded Antegrad GmbH. The goal and task of Antegrad GmbH is to deve­lop and imple­ment con­cre­te con­cepts and solu­ti­ons that work in the dif­fi­cult and chal­len­ging envi­ron­ment of health­ca­re pro­vi­ders, in con­trast to “clas­sic manage­ment con­sul­tanci­es”. In doing so, Antegrad can be direct­ly mea­su­red by the suc­cess of the mea­su­res and imple­men­ta­ti­ons in each assignment.

Thus, Antegrad only employs pro­fes­sio­nals with a very broad and high­ly spe­cia­li­zed back­ground – mea­ning no uni­ver­si­ty gra­dua­tes, no interns — but mana­gers who can com­mu­ni­ca­te at eye level with top per­for­mers in the cli­ent organization.
