My last position was the posting as Marketing Director Asia Pacific 2013 to Taiwan.
customer focus marketing productmanagement sales business development projectmanagement
Functional focus was always the customer and the customer environment: marketing, sales, product management, project management and business development.
organisational development coaching development vision strategy management
Especially in Asia, operational leadership tasks were always linked to organizational development. This involved a variety of development tasks: the creation and consolidation of departments, the technical, project-related and operational leadership of departments and the coaching and development of employees and managers. In addition, a primary focus was the creation of a vision, strategy development and the establishment of value-oriented management.
These pillars have always been of particular interest to me and, due to the simultaneous operational responsibilities, also a constant challenge for my personal and professional change and progress.
