What has motivated you to take on a position of high responsibility within Henkel?

What were the milestones in your career and are there people or circumstances that have favored your career?
A question that is often posed is, ‘what is more decisive not only for the career but for a lifetime achievement, influencing people you meet or choices you make in certain circumstances?’ I think, both. In my case, I believe that first I had the blessing to meet and work with leaders and tutors who were best examples, and who helped me to make the right choices in the respective circumstances. Coming from a small country, one milestone for me has definitely been the international experience.

Work with passion and live the passion on the job, share it and inspire the people who work for, with and above you.
