30 years of professional experience, mostly as managing director in the textile and automotive supply sectors (retail, wholesale, industry), 15 years of which as an independent entrepreneur, have shown me that crises "belong" and can also be seen as an opportunity. In the textile industry, as in other industries, survival is only possible if one adapts to global developments and accepts change management as "necessary/natural".
My thinking and my understanding of consulting were significantly influenced by my studies of economics, political science and sports in Cologne, as well as by my own long-term and practical experience with the Cradle to Cradle concept, among others. After several national and international professional stations, I am now returning to Cologne after more than 30 years to become part of a committed, experienced and sustainably thinking partner company.
On the way to sustainable behavior, self-evident and traditional processes and contexts have to be questioned again and again. Athletically persistent, I not only dedicate myself to breaking down outdated thought patterns, but also work on my next marathon best time. Today, I advise national and international companies in the food, packaging and plastics industries as well as the textile sector and other markets on the strategic and operational implementation of sustainability concepts.
