Entrepreneur, movitator, doer and implementer. Interim Manager.

I am first and foremost an entrepreneur myself. As the founder of several companies, formed into a strong and diversified group of companies, CEO and Chairman of the Board of Directors, I know exactly the challenges and the day-to-day business. I bring this experience, coupled with my expertise, to the task as a solution finder and situational understanding. As a temporary maker. As a modern leader and entrepreneur, I know how to become and remain successful. I am the contact person for all levels in the group or medium-sized businesses – authentic, straightforward and transparent.

I describe myself as a strategy developer, a turnaround champion with a results-oriented hands-on mentality and a passionate entrepreneur with innovative business sense. My principle is simple and demanding at the same time: identify tasks, take responsibility, implement with competence. Through “challenge and support” as well as motivation and modern, agile structures, I win over the entire team and thus achieve success together.

„Hand in hand with the client I find the best solution and implement it together.”

My values. My strengths.

Live and model. Leadership personality and authentic motivator.

“I can only demand from my counterpart what I myself exemplify.” Following this principle, a lot of passion and my ability to inspire and motivate people quickly, I create a special culture of trust, striving for competence, advocating openness and free entrepreneurial action. This as a whole makes an organisation more agile and stronger, creating a huge competitive advantage.

Competence. Continuous training and the exchange of knowledge raises the level of each individual. The passion to achieve and improve are skills that one has and also wants to constantly develop. Learning something new every day and measuring oneself against best practice – these are the advantages from which the client ultimately benefits.

Entrepreneurship. Every entrepreneur knows what it means to be self-employed. It means bearing great responsibility. In our mandates we take responsibility from day one. This guarantees the client the best results and a sure success.

Transparency. Communicate transparently with the client and the team. Honest and open to criticism and counter-arguments. Open communication, transparent, is one of the most important building blocks for implementing something “new”. Because it requires the entire team.

Trust. Comprehensible decisions and keeping one’s word are the basis for a healthy relationship of trust. We stand by our word. And we take responsibility from day one. Thinking and acting like an entrepreneur.

Innovation. New ideas, “think outside the box”, experiences and impulses from scientific research Further are topics for dialogues to act across topics. New ideas, fresh thinking impulses let something new emerge.

Experience. We use our experience as entrepreneurs, founders, CEOs and board members to support our clients every day. We understand the needs and concerns – we are entrepreneurs.
