Meet the founders

United by a common purpose and a believe in the potential of Business Partnering and a passion for changing the game of Finance, Michael, Bo and Anders established the Business Partnering Institute in April 2018.

Michael Lykke Bülow

As a former consultant and finance executive, Michael is an expert in Finance Transformation and Business Partnering. He works closely with teams and organisations developing the mindset, capabilities and culture that is critical for creating impact as business partners.

Michael has been an architect and executor of numerous large scale transformation programs and has co-created and delivered Business Partnering development programs in a broad range of companies and industries.

As a former finance executive, Michael has also taken his own medicine and successfully built “consultant skills” into his former Finance teams.
