In my job I am busy with the Digital Transformation and the Leadership, in order to leverage advantages for customers, partners and employees, but at the same time I am looking at the challenges and how to master them. I do embrace change happening in our society and daily work enthusiastically, as this is driven by the intelligent use of technology. I strongly believe that teams can nearly achieve everything - with the right and modern leadership.

Since February 2017 I am running Specialist Sales for Microsoft in Germany as a Segment Lead and Member of the Management Board. Together with my team we shape actively the digital transformation - for the customers of our customers, for the employees of our customers, for the operations and processes of our customers and for the products and services of our customers. Our mission is to empower every person and every organisation to achieve more.

Before joining Microsoft I spend 3,5 years at Dimension Data, a leading worldwide Systems Integrator with more than 30.000 employees. I was responsible as a Director Transformational Business for Managed Services, Outsourcing, Datacenter, Customer Experience and End-User-Computing and a member of their management board. During that time I contributed actively to the transformation of Dimension Data as well - culture change, M&A and business transformation.

Before that time I was Vice President Cloud Business at Fujitsu, leading the company’s Cloud business in Europe. Prior to Fujitsu, I have worked for Siemens, where I held a number of management positions within national and international services areas.

I am 42 years old and live with my wife and my twins nearby Munich. In my spare time I run half marathons, do martial arts and I am passionate about cooking. My source of inspiration and energy is my family. I am a why-not’er and I am embracing change. Only with continuous change you can position yourself in a fast moving world.

I am a strong believer of the Digital Transformation as a disruptive force. These force will eventually reshape the IT landscape we all know and influence massively the way we work and live. I am passionate about the opportunities of this development and I am a convinced enthusiastic leader to realise the potentials together with customers and partners - with a strong team, motivated to highest performance.
