Attitude

I burn for making the world smarter, more sustainable, and inclusive with technology, innovation and awesome products based on cloud services and data in the space of IoT, connected smart products and intelligent infrastructure. In these areas, I as a leader and engineer can make a difference. I can contribute to make the world more sustainable and lifeworthy for humankind and future generations.

You will experience a highly passionate, strategic thinking and curious product & engineering leader with powerful communication skills and an empathic, human, and trustful approach to work with people.

I lead with purpose, driving top down a vision into tangible results, always the big picture in mind. That is why I love to connect product & tech, as product generates the purpose and is the starting point to drive a common mission as a team.

I lead people into progressively thinking forward, constructively fighting, and committing for the best ideas and into challenging boundaries. I am only satisfied delivering technically and functionally sophisticated products with well-architected designs that foresee more than today?s obvious needs.

What makes me stand out on top is how I have my roots in technology, but equally in business and product.

Despite being an executive for many years, I am still capable to write code for software and infrastructure and discuss architecture, code, and cloud infrastructure in meaningful depth.
