„Knowing is not enough; we must be capable to apply. 
Willing is not enough, we must do.

– Johann Wolfgang von Goethe


Values are the lighthouses giving us orientation. In Operations it’s Integrity, Effectiveness , Perseverance, and Passion showing us the way to success.

Principles help in daily action- being on-time fort the promised deliveries in quantity and quality is the base for fulfilling contract obligations and customers’ expectations.

Respectful, fair, sincere, agile and result oriented Cooperation are the visible signs of ones’ performance attitude.


A down-to-earth born in 1960, married and two already grown children.
As third of 5 sons, I was molded by my extended family, the entrepreneurial environment of a SME carpenters’ business.


Following decades of international operational execution practices built up my intercultural experiences and I regard myself as a European, having been curious about the world since my early days. My openness drives me to discover new subjects, link them to proven coherences and to realize goals with purpose.

A relation based on partnership is the base for successful collaboration

With an optimistic attitude, I face professional and personal challenges in a serene, positive and perseverant manner.

Such properties shape my working practices as well as my structured, conceptual thinking and acting. My enthusiasm and motivation capability permit myself to coach or mentor and act as an uncomplicated and reliable team-player. This, being based on tolerance, respect and appreciation as essential ingredients for an effective collaboration. 

I am looking forward to supporting you in your challenges with such qualifications and experiences. It’s my claim to understand you and your business – working with full dedication on realizing your development potential and jointly form, achieve and even surpass your self-set goals.
