About me

My experience for your company

Some years as an interim manager are preceded by a long and successful career in many well-known companies. In companies such as ThyssenKrupp Bilstein, Phoenix Feinbau, KOSTAL, Vorwerk, Vaillant or even Mercedes-Benz, I laid the foundation to not only be able to meet the most diverse challenges of my customers today, but also to offer proven solutions based on my experience.
