About

I am an experienced lead engineer, a PMP certified project manager and a product development expert, with over 15 years of work experience at multinational companies, out of which 10 years come from leading roles. My industries have been Automotive (9 years), Aviation (4 years) and professional Drones (2 years). My main task has always been the development of new products, the recovery of critical products and projects, the removal of complex risks and errors, and the development of life-cycle, work methods and best practices, as well as handling important stakeholders, customers, management, and suppliers. I have been one of the top performers in all of my companies.

Dedication and pinpoint focus allowed me to succeed in these challenging environments, whether working alone, or managing a cross-functional team. „Doing things until they are done“ is my moving principle. A strong project management background starting in 2012, a nearly mother language level German and a business fluent English allowed me to understand and handle business with partners in Europe, in the USA, in China, in South-Korea, and in other countries worldwide.

I had the luck to work with 26 nationalities based in 12 countries. A proactive approach, analytical and flexible thinking, and a problem solving mindset allowed me to find solutions to longtime critical issues, and successfully fulfill customer requirements by integrating these solutions with proper deadline, cost and stakeholder management into the product or project. A PMP certificate rounds up the project management background.

The work at multinational companies developed a company culture based strong work ethics and a process based structured workflow, through which continuous learning and self-development became a key aspect of my life.

I hope this description contains a proper demonstration of how my skills could be used to accelerate project success and company growth in your business.
