I have 20+ years of experience in the Global Sporting Industry, specifically with the big Corporate players: Nike, adidas, Reebok. Born and educated in North Carolina, USA with Bachelor degree in Personnel Management and Marketing, I have spent my career in multiple functions and positions such as Marketing, Sales, Operations, Finance, and Human Resources. I understand how global teams, businesses, and ultimately corporations function at local and global level.
In each of my roles, I strove to improve my team and business results better than when I had started in the position, primarily with collaboration of my colleagues, my continuous improvement mind set, clear decision making, SMART targets, and ultimately managing the change that we created. I learned very early in my career that people run the processes and business, and they need the space and platform to collaborate in order to solve and decide complex situations.
Throughout my career, I naturally became a facilitator, because I was successful in providing the space for people to engage and grow the business mid- to long- term. Along my journey and beyond my acquired business acumen, I also became experienced in Change Management, Continuous Improvement, Lean Green Belt methodology, Agile methodology, Leadership Journey techniques, and Coaching upcoming talents, colleagues, and executives.
My facilitation circles around my high level of emotional intelligence with a clear awareness of the personalities in the room, understanding the business challenge at hand, and the ability to ask the right questions at the right time. I align the group to the situation by breaking down complex situations into simplistic digestible parts and finally work towards solutions that drive both engagement and business.
I am absolutely convinced, simply from my own experience in facilitating all levels of organizations (mangers, experts, leaders, executive board, etc.) that facilitation will bring value to any complex situation by involving people's natural instinct to clarity, resolve, decide, and move forward.
I look forward to speaking with you and understanding your challenge. Also, I offer for you to speak with some of my clients or prior work colleagues: Operations Manager, Finance Controller, HR Specialist, Sr. Director Marketing, SVP Europe, CFO, CMO, SAP, Hua Feng 华峰集团, etc.
I live with my German wife and three kids in Erlangen, Germany.
