A keynote speaker (one-day) event at JIBS:

Business digitalisation with a focus on IT-enabled change in supply-chain management

Jönköping International Business School (JIBS) invites JU students and staff to its one-day event on business digitalisation as part of its IT-Enabled Change in Supply-Chain Management module.

Associate Lecturer Abtin Rezaeenia has invited his former colleague at Otis Worldwide Corporation, Björn Molzahn (currently finance director at Otis Global Major Projects), to share his knowledge and experience with students studying business-related disciplines such as supply-chain management, finance, marketing, leadership, management, HR, IT, AI, manufacturing, and engineering.

The event will take place on 23 February 2022 on Zoom and will be divided into morning and afternoon sessions. The morning session will start at 10:00 am, in which Abtin will welcome everyone and introduce Mr Molzahn.




Lunchbreak is scheduled for 1:00 pm. The afternoon session will start at 2:00 pm in the form of a workshop on how Otis uses data and IT systems for forecasting in supply-chain, finance, sales, and marketing purposes.

The event will conclude with a Q&A session.


About the guest speaker

Björn Molzahn is finance director within the Global Major Projects group of OTIS Worldwide Corp. In this role he provides support and oversight for all major projects from pre-bid to completion. He is also involved in several transformative projects, including digital transformation.

Björn started his career in banking with an apprenticeship at Deutsche Bank, followed by working in East Germany. He went on to study economic science, graduating in finance and financial accounting, commercial law, human resources and management. He joined OTIS as a trainee in finance, and is now in his 25th year with the group.

Björn has served in various country, regional and global roles, spanning from finance and treasury over supply chain to transformation and integration. Björn has played a part in the implementation of various ERP systems, such as Baan, JDE and SAP, structuring organisations and transforming operational structures. He has also worked on internal projects such that they benefit from macro-economic changes, such as the internationalisation of Chinese Renminbi, and enabled such projects to manage exposure from such phenomena as the Euro crisis.

His certification as an internal auditor has served him well in a number of projects, and in the promotion of OTIS absolutes, in particular business ethics.

Working in many areas has exposed him to a variety of cultures, and provided fantastic learning opportunities in and outside the corporate world.

Björn was appointed to the Examination Board of the Berufsakademie, Berlin, and enjoyed his role there in education, until his move to Shanghai, China led him to suspend his involvement. He has also been a trainer for change and conflict management, teambuilding, empowerment and coaching.

While the majority of his career has been in finance, Björn considers himself more of a process person than a finance person.
