With my professional life in the industrial environment, I know very well which adjusting screws have to be turned in the complex market environment (e.g.) of a machine manufacturer or Tier1 supplier (e.g. hydraulics) in order to achieve a sustainable positive result and increase the company value.Over many years I have gained extensive experience in this area and am very familiar with the do's and don'ts.

I have been able to assess, manage and develop operations at various locations around the world. For me, operations encompass the actual production and all associated processes in order to produce sustainably and economically with the required quality standards. In addition to management basics such as involving employees and the correct interpretation of figures, data and facts, I was also able to use my "entrepreneurial gut feeling" to make quick and correct decisions.
