I was born in Gelsenkirchen and grew up near Düsseldorf. After completing my studies, I was increasingly given international responsibility; my professional positions took me to London and Hamburg, for example. I am still enthusiastic about working in intercultural teams to learn every day about new technologies and businesses.

I now live with my wife and our two dogs on the edge of the beautiful Black Forrest. My son studies Engineering and my daughter is training in social affairs.

My personal drive in Executive Search and HR Consulting is described very well by Elbert G. Hubbbard:

“There is something that is much rarer to find, something that is far more valuable, something that is rarer than ability: the ability to recognize abilities.”
