What else should you know about me...

To be open for new challenges and opportunities combined with the strength to focus quickly on new targets and goals is my most important strength of character.

Operational and strategic management for product or business development in the international content and a high degree of flexibility for international travelling is both necessary and welcome possibility to analyse and understand different international markets and their requirements.

Using those requirements with my skills as a challenge and an opportunity for my company has been a major part of my success.

My life philosophy:

“Nothing is good if you don’t do it” (E. Kästner).
