Profile

My profile as a sales and service professional

Profile

My field of expertise is B2B international business development: developing aftermarket service business, product marketing and sales of capital goods.

My strength is giving structure to cooperation and organisation. From my background in public management, I make sure that technical companies are customer-oriented. Seeing the dot on the horizon as well as important details of today, I will take initiatives, give direction and translate strategy into daily actions and vice versa.

Experience

My experience is in the sales of capital good (defence electronics, aerospace and compression systems) and developing the business by servitizing and by innovating the aftermarket offering. My extensive track record is with medium- to large-sized companies in global markets. After an acquisition, I have proven myself in a corporate structure at the Scottish-American parent company. 

Besides being a business leader and manager, I am a certified business coach and mentor.

Spare time

In addition to my work as a sales and service professional, in my spare time I make music, draw and paint, cycle on my MTB, ski, sail, swim and I am a youth hockey coach.

Available as a Chief on Demand

As Chief on Demand , I work independently and on a flexible basis because experience is especially valuable when it is used widely and contributes. Moreover, by working for various organizations, you will continue to learn and develop yourself.

My profile summarized:

  • >30 years of experience in strategy, sales and service
  • Down-to-earth
  • Connecting
  • Practical approach
  • Certified executive coaching & mentoring (ILM-7)
