Chief Financial Officer
Executive Committee Member
"Having worked with different companies in my career in the areas of machinery industry, legal and consulting as well as construction, I have gained considerable experience in various businesses facing diverse challenges. Today, I very much consider myself as a t-shaped employee: broad skillset with a clear focus on finance. I believe that the combination of having a wide horizon together with an entrepreneurial mindset and, most of all, common sense will allow you to work successfully alongside of your clients."
