My friends and colleagues would describe me as an extrovert personality of integrity, competent demeanour, etiquette, good sense of humour, sensitivity and assertiveness. I like to collaborate with people both within and outside the company and I get additional motivation from an environment with a dynamic team spirit.

The ability to self-motivate in difficult situations, a self-critical aspiration for continuous improvement in all areas of my life and stamina with complex tasks are aspects which complete my personality.

Activities having to do with reform, restructuring and improvement in efficiency fascinate me, because I can introduce my creativity and analytical skills, as well as my own initiative and organizational skills.

In addition to professional goals, a full, happy personal life and social commitment to others in emergencies or with special needs have always been important to me.
