Bachelor Mech.Eng.



Use my knowledge and experience in manufacturing operations in such a way that measurable and lasting improvements are generated, both for the benefit of organization and individual.


My entire career I build up knowledge in a wide range of manufacturing processes (including supporting processes). This knowledge contains the whole range from single – and series production till flow – and process production. I operate on a senior executive level

Therefore I posses a broad experience in design, excecute – and improve these processes.

My goal is to control these processes, which fully fit to the market demand.

Since the gravity center is “change “I know the human being is the critical success factor.

This is my personal source of inspiration and motivation.

My added value is there ,where business strategy must be transformed into concrete processes procedures and staffing .By improving the level of knowledge in the organization , implementing and controllingchange (“what” and “how” must be clear) I realize these goals.

My personal characteristics are result driven, analytical insight, pragmatic, technical knowledge, stable, integer, friendly and patience. These characteristics help me to meet my targets.

For this reason I offer in crisis situations specific added value. I take away turbulence and restore confidence in a respectfull way.

In my approach I start up as a ‘builder” and I teach people to act and think as independent as possible.
