Vice President Portfolio Strategy and Marketing

In portfolio management, we are looking ahead which solutions tomorrow’s world will require and how our customers will work with them.
New and intelligent technologies, global platforms and complete connectivity across supply chains and down on machine level will fundamentally change how we manage supply chains.
I find it extremely exciting to work on solutions with our customers and innovation partners that will ensure our joint continued success in tomorrow's global competition.

Besides those future oriented topics, we also take a very pragmatic view on how we can better solve today's challenges. Usually, it only takes a few adjustments or a new approach to better master the daily business challenges with existing ideas and tools.

I look forward to exchanging ideas and experiences with you!
