My passions are people with their remarkable talents and potentials, cultural diversities and looking outside the box every day.

After 20 years in the consulting business I still feel the joy and pride of finding innovative and unconventional solutions that produce extraordinary results for our clients. And particularly Executive Search in fast pace and dynamic global technology industries feels like learning on steroids every day. Additionally, I feed my mind daily by reading: business and inspirational insights as well as true literature.

People make the difference! In personal life, in our society, as well as in business. And since my days as strategy consultant I developed a passion to connect exceptional people where I see a mutual benefit, particularly beyond filling a single vacancy.

Diversity is the spice of life - something I learned when I was studying International Business in Germany and the United States. I joined AIMS 2015 as it is a truly international firm, with a global culture of collaboration and continuous development. Also here, it is people that make the difference.

But not only is my business truly international. My family and my life are as well. I am a Croatian citizen, living in Austria with my wife from Venezuela. My children are German and Canadian citizens and at home we speak three languages and are blessed to have friends on every continent.
