As a strategic senior executive with over 15 years of experience, I specialize in driving operational transformation and organizational growth for technology companies. My career has been defined by roles as CEO, COO, and Managing Director, where I've spearheaded business turnarounds, global expansions, and strategic change initiatives. Some of my proudest achievements include:

  • Turning around profitability from negative to positive within 1 year as CEO while launching award-winning products
  • Scaling a team from 70 to 300 as COO, implementing an innovative remuneration program that increased pay by 10% with no added costs
  • Driving revenue growth from €2M to €34M and expanding headcount from 30 to 800 as Executive Director and Managing Director, transforming organizations into strategic technology delivery partners for top financial institutions

Beyond the numbers, I'm passionate about building diverse, high-performing teams and serving as a trusted advisor to Boards on M&A, change management, and leveraging emerging technologies.

With an MBA and MSc in Computer Science & Economics, I bring a unique blend of strategic vision, operational expertise, and technical understanding to every challenge.

On a personal note, when I'm not driving business transformations, you can usually find me in one of two places: the kitchen or the gym. I'm an avid baker always eager to test out new pastry recipes, and I've been known to do a bit of kettlebell juggling to stay active.

I'm always excited to connect with like-minded professionals, swap stories, and explore new opportunities. So don't hesitate to reach out - whether it's to talk shop, trade baking tips, or just say hello. Looking forward to crossing paths and making an impact together!
