I have studied Electrical Engineering (Dipl.-Ing.) with a focus on information technology at the Leibniz Universität Hannover as well as Finance at the University of Pennsylvania, The Wharton School (MBA). Then I worked as a consultant at BCG (Boston Consulting Munich and San Francisco) and at AT Kearney.
After my work in the technology companies Motorola and Infineon I took over at the Siemens AG and Siemens Enterprise Communications GmbH as Vice President Strategic Procurement with a responsibility for a purchase volume of over EUR 500 million and a purchasing organization in over 160 countries.
As a Head of Sourcing at HypoRealEstate and Deutsche Pfandbriefbank AG, I managed to set up and establish the procurement function as a key lever in the turnaround of the bank. Then I was as overall CPO at Allgeier SE, an IT group with around 7,000 employees.
