I stand for passion, customer orientation, leadership, teamwork, communication, networking, pragmatism. I build my acting as a leader on personal values, organisational culture, change, very strong customer relations and clear business decisions. I am sure successful business in the mobility area requires out of the box thinking, agility and the right team to drive teamwork for fast and solid decision making.
With a MSc in automotive engineering, I have over 16 years experience in international management and leadership in the field of automotive, e-mobility, automated driving, functional safety, homologation and testing. With international exposure to Americas, Asia and Europe I have lived and worked in Germany, Austria and Singapore and developed an extensive network within the industry and governmental institutions globally.
As Senior Vice President Mobility Industry at TÜV SÜD based in Munich, my responsibilities include strategy, P&L and investments for TÜV SÜDs global operations with large international customers like the automotive and supplier industry, fleet operators, importers and dealerships worldwide.
Since April 2019 I am holding the Chairmanship of the Executive Committee at the International Alliance for Mobility Testing & Standardization (iamts), an international initiative among leading organisations to pave the way to safe automated and connected driving.
