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 positions and functions such as Marketing, Sales, Operations, Finance, and Human Resources. I understand how global teams, businesses, and corporations function at the 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.
Along my journey and beyond my acquired business acumen, I also became experienced in Change Management, Continuous Improvement, Lean Green Belt methodology, Agile methodology, Design Thinking, Leadership Journey techniques, and Coaching upcoming talents, colleagues, and executives.
My facilitation circles around my 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 break down complex situations into simplistic digestible parts and finally work towards solutions that drive both engagement and business.
I am absolutely convinced that facilitation will bring value to any complex situation by involving people's natural instinct to clarify, 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 that might have a similar background as you: CFO, CMO, SVP Europe, Operations Manager, Finance Controller, HR Specialist, Sr. Director Marketing, Head of Strategy, and more.
I live in Erlangen, Germany with my German wife and three kids.
