P8 Public Management was established by Detlef Braun in 2005. The new venture was the logical extension of a broad history of activity in local politics, science and adult education, and of long-standing consulting experience garnered in various ministries, associations, unions, businesses and local government.

Detlef Braun's educational background and political experience, his academic position at the University of Munster and his many years of consulting experience - all have contributed to the wide range of knowledge that he now brings to the business.

No newcomer to this field, in the 1990s he had the opportunity to garner extensive and practical business knowledge as the managing director of a partnership. He further developed this experience while working as an active member, partner and manager at a medium-sized consulting firm based in Düsseldorf.
