My defining career experience was gathered managing medium sized companies and business units, in Germany, Austria and South America, as well as international projects. Most recently I was Head of Production & Technology, Managing Director Technology and International Head of a regional company covering several countries. I have conducted projects in e.g. USA, Canada, Argentina, Brazil, South Africa, China and India.

With regard to strategic reorganization and change management I have, together with the relevant people, gathered the experience mentioned below. This arose in projects leading to significant and sustainable results, e.g. improvements of the market position, establishment of new organizational structures, increasing EBITDA margins and reducing costs significantly.
