My Passion

I love the North Sea and especially Sylt: when it´s cold long walks which free the mind and when it´s warm sport and relaxing on the beach.

My Mission

As a „Finance + Strategy“ advisor I combine deep expertise in Financial Services with a strategic view on digital innovation and disruption, which is key for the success of incumbents, fintechs and investors. My primary goal is to enable decision makers to evaluate new business models from a holistic perspective and support the implementation in a hands-on way.
