“I enjoy working in interdisciplinary teams where specialists can profitably contribute their knowledge and thus contribute to a comprehensive value-added result.

In my work, I enjoy interacting with people on a personal level. Especially in today’s – increasingly digital – world, this is an enormously important asset for building trust. Our world is complicated, and our clients need professionals who can successfully guide them through this maze.

I enjoy playing sports. They help me clear my head and recharge my mental batteries. Many ideas come into my head while working out.”
