Information quality creates trust
Entrepreneur Wolfgang Stamnitz passed away on Sunday, April 18, 202 from cardiac arrest. At his desk. Suddenly and unexpectedly.
Wolfgang Stamnitz was chairman of the board of ACCONSIS in Munich. Together with his partners Stefan Herzer and Dr. Andreas Hofner, he was a pioneer of modern client-oriented tax and legal consulting and auditing. Raising “client satisfaction” to the top level of priorities was unusual in this industry. Transferring management know-how and skills such as controlling to law firm operations was also new.
Number and sense
In the trio of the then young management, Wolfgang Stamnitz was an exceptional champion of industry renewal, and in the firm, the celebrated and tireless advocate for new ideas. He was passionate about his work, set high goals and pushed for continuous progress.
The professional focus and, above all, the personalities of the three partners were so different – and yet the three were so complementary that they shared an implicit understanding of fundamendal values and strategic issues. In the quarter century of intensive collaboration, a deep trust grew.
It became clear that the enthusiastic competitor, who never avoided confrontation, had a keen sense of community: where the WE ends, the fun ends. That was a matter close to his heart. He could get carried away. The community must become better, for everyone, preferably every day, he believed numbers are not a value in themselves, according to his credo, but they are existential- they only arise in togetherness.
