I enjoy changes and challenges and jumping in at the deep end – both privately and professionally. Frequent changes of tasks and place of residence as well as working in and with a wide variety of nations and organizations and traveling have shaped me personally. Empathic and openminded I enjoy working with other people. For me, numbers are the basis for analyses and recommendations for action; however, the processes and the business behind them are what counts for me. This is where the levers are to be found to improve results and streamline processes. The exchange and critical discussion with responsible managers and employees often reveal existing potential and knowledge; combined with my own experience and without arrogance, I generate acceptance. The goal is not to know better, but to support and jointly make things happen.
For me, successful restructuring and transformation means taking people along with you to achieve sustainable results. This means reducing fears of change and pointing out perspectives and solutions, but also negotiating with employee representatives and unions and demanding tough cuts if the company situation requires it. It is important to me to present and explain facts transparently and openly and to be reliable.
