Independent, results-oriented, high-performing
I have successfully delivered large and small projects in various hands-on leadership roles in more than 20 years of work in consulting and IT services companies, including as a delivery manager, operations manager, design manager, (chief) product owner, digital architect and chief operating officer.

A rare combination of large functional breadth and substantial technical depth forms the foundation of my competencies and allows me to work successfully with highly diverse stakeholders — bridging business and IT, but also different domains within IT. My business background provides me with a good understanding for members of business departments and management while my technical expertise provides me with a good understanding for and a high degree of credibility to members of development teams.

I communicate complex business and technology concerns effectively to partners in different roles and at different levels in the organisational structure — in conversations and in writing, in English and in German.

I have many years of experience working in large enterprises and I also enjoy working with small and medium enterprises (SMEs).
