- developing strategic suppliers and building B2B partnerships

- optimizing pricing and promotions

- coaching teams and developing individuals

- P&L management / budget and strategic planning

- e-commerce & omnichannel & digitatalisation

- change and transformation management

- intercultural management

I have aquired a holistic leadership style through various experiences made:

- commercial assignments in both operative and corporate functions

- leading teams in mature and developing markets

- succeeding in bridging on- and offline business opportunities

- transforming and shaping organizations with a strong result-orientation.

As a senior expert in these areas, I have also enjoyed to pass my learnings to students as part-time lecturer and start-up coach.
