During my career within several financial institutions: Chase Manhattan, Crédit Lyonnais, Bank of America and Reuters, I built up an extensive knowledge and a broad experience in all aspects of the international and the local business: financial management, HRM, IT and sales & marketing management. Since 2005 I acquired several small and medium sized companies, which offered me a strong insight in the day to day management, personnel recruitment, setting up and managing partnerships and actively leading and steering sales processes. I consider myself as a hands-on analytical and business strategic minded professional with natural coaching skills and the ability to develop a long-term market vision. My character consists out of loyalty, uncompromising ethics, a great enthusiasm and integrity. My core business principles are teamwork, creativity, service and trust.
