Claudia Juech was the associate vice president and managing director for Strategic Insights at The Rockefeller Foundation. She joined The Rockefeller Foundation in 2007 and currently leads the work to maximize insight—both internally and externally—from the various channels the Foundation uses to learn about new ideas.
To do so, Ms. Juech manages a sub-portfolio of work including programming for the Foundation’s Bellagio Center and leading the Strategic Insights team, a strategic function that aims to identify and assess the impact potential of intervention opportunities across all four of the Foundation’s thematic priority areas. She established and oversees the Foundation’s horizon scanning activities to inform foundation-level strategy and areas of programmatic work on an on-going basis, and created a global “Searchlight” network of trend monitoring grantees as input into the idea generation processes at the Foundation.
Prior to joining The Rockefeller Foundation, Ms. Juech was a vice president at DB Research, Deutsche Bank’s think tank for trends in business, society, and the financial markets. Reporting to Deutsche Bank Group’s chief economist, she provided decision-making support on a broad range of economic, political, and sector specific topics, as well as trends in the areas of education, demographics, health, and consumer behavior.
Ms. Juech has a degree in Information Science from Cologne University of Applied Sciences and an International MBA from the University of Cologne. She resides in New York City.
