As an entrepreneur, I know the challenges faced by international business associations today. That is why I keep the overall result / project always in view, think and act strategically. This also means that issues, processes and structures as well as the meaningfulness of decisions are critically questioned.
I weigh costs and benefits against each other – and can also represent my assessment competently. I have a high level of persuasive power, especially in dealing with top management or the company’s proprietors. As a doer and innovator, I have openness for new paths to offer and keep the company’s sustainable future in mind.
Communication with the people in the company – from the top to the shop floor – is of paramount importance to me. I approach people, listen and have a high power of persuasion. In this way, I am able to reduce tension and lead the project in a positive and constructive way, particularly in difficult times. My customers profit from this.
Listening between the lines is important, because precisely what is not said often is often the cause of the problem. My creed: Bring people together and ask the right questions. For this I have the right mixture of empathy and experience. As a coach I accompany the employees and teams during implementation.
I have almost 20 years of professional experience and over the last five years I have been a successful interim manager. As a generalist with specialist knowledge, I work in the areas of Purchasing, Supply Chain Management, Materials Management and Supplier Management as well as technical and industrial operations at the management level or as a Project Manager for my clients. And often when it is about change situations or transformation processes. Because difficult assignments are just the right job for me. I have an MBA and was educated in the UK and the USA.
