I spent most of the time of my career working in different high-tech Swiss SMEs, active in the MEM (mechanical, electrical and metal) industry.
Over the last 15 years, I have had the opportunity to develop from R&D Engineer to Top Manager. Today, I want to give my career a new direction, a challenge where I can not only succeed as a Manager, but also as an Entrepreneur. I will achieve this by acquiring an industrial SME and by leading it to its next stage.
The focus of my search is the MEM industry in Switzerland and Germany. I will more specifically target SMEs developing and manufacturing machines, automation components or subsystems.
It is especially in this industry environment, where SMEs are driven by technology and innovation and address global markets with high value-add products, that I can best benefit from my skills, background and network.
I have a proven senior top management experience in various export-oriented Swiss SMEs, focusing on international business development and product innovation.
Over the years, I have acquired strong operational experience in day-to-day business management, as well as in implementation of strategic projects. I have led companies through various phases of growth and crisis and always consider these opportunities to analyse, adapt and improve organization and products. This allows me to demonstrate strong leadership, leading multi-functional teams with employees around the world, together with the capability to make needed adjustments to incorporate new external conditions.
