ADVISOR | INTERIM MANAGER | BOARD MEMBER
MY APPROACH: "My focus is on accompanying the operative "doing" and the transfer of digitization and transformation strategies into the companies. As General Manager, I am broadly based and can support the successful rebuilding of digital business models and the development of "go to market" strategies as well as the establishment, restructuring or reduction of corporate divisions."
MY USP: "As personal USP, I have a deeper technological expertise and enthusiasm (such as AI). In addition to technology, I have a profound expertise in all relevant parts of the digital value chain: strategy, business development, data, product and content. In the course of my professional life I have done or led almost everything myself through my numerous set-up and re-organization activities - and as a founder. This and my hands-on mentality in combination with my business and management experience set me apart in my orientation."
MY PLUS: "I see my personal advantage in my broad professional experience and that I can familiarize myself quickly and solution-oriented with new tasks and market situations. I am not afraid of difficult tasks. I find solutions for problems and provable by my vita I can deliver what I have promised."
