I believe that every employee in every enterprise deserves an executive who is prepared and willing to lead people.
With this belief in mind I decided already early in my career to strive for leadership roles. My profound track record as a business leader in different Sales and Marketing corporate functions enabled me to assume after more than 20 years a HR Role focusing on leadership development, performance management and execution of powerful visions.
As a member of the Executive Coach Team of IMD in Lausanne I’m working with members of the Top 200 Management Teams from Syngenta, Lufthansa, ThyssenKrupp and UBS, challenging their individual development goals and coaching them along the implementation.
My company RLD, which was founded end of 2013, offers individual and group learning programs focusing on personal development of leaders in a business environment. Inspirational impulses combined with follow up coaching encourage managers to leave their comfort zone and critically reflect themselves. This leads to impactful people leadership and higher efficiency in execution.
I’m passionate about adding value to business and enabling people’s personal and professional development. Thus I’m offering my profound experience assuming responsibility as Interim Manager on Board Level as well as a member of advisory boards.
I have a university degree in economics (Lic. Oec.) and specialize as a certified business coach in change and crisis management. Since beginning of 2017 I'm lecturing "Leadership" and "International & Cross Cultural Management" at the University for Applied Sciences in Kufstein, Austria. Furthermore I give keynotes in the context of selected EMBA Programs at the universities Zürich and St. Gallen and reflected my leadership experience publishing a book in 2014.
Born 1962 in Germany, I’m married and father of 3 adult children. Living since 2012 in Switzerland, after 15 years in Italy. I speak fluently German, English and Italian.
