A portrait of our team

Experts for the energy industry


Jonathan Lichter

Partner, Managing Director
Jonathan Lichter

Jonathan Lichter is a founder and shareholder of Callidus Energie. While studying business administration with a focus on business informatics at the University of Mainz, Mr Lichter found his way into the executive search department at a leading recruitment consultancy. Over the past 7 years, he has held challenging mandates in the areas of sales and in the field of digital transformation. Today, his dense network ranges from executives to strategists to highly specialised service providers in the energy industry. Mr Lichter also deals with future topics privately; as a digital native, he passionately follows all technological trends and developments. At Callidus Energie, he is therefore not only responsible for all IT issues, but also plays a decisive role in the development of the company. Nerd score: Five on the open-ended Lichter-scale.
