About me

After a short excursion to study nano engineering, I completed my training as an IT management assistant at Metro Systems, the internal service provider of Metro AG. There, I gained first experiences in project management and was soon responsible for my own project in the area of master data exchange between external suppliers and the internal Master Data Management System.

Following my training, I was responsible for some international projects of an IT service provider. For a major steel customer, I analysed and evaluated on site the IT processes and infrastructure at sites worldwide (e.g. China, India, Japan, Brazil, Italy and France). Eventually, I managed the changeover of a complete IT infrastructure at a site. During that time, I developed a strong customer orientation regarding diverse national conditions and characters.


Since 1 February 2018, I am working at ChallengeIT as a consultant in the process implementation and related administrative service area for clients of the automotive industry. I also work as an IT auditor and subject matter expert in the finance industry.
