I´m not a typical consultant. Lucky you! Born in 1972, I look back to more than 15 years of leadership and management experience in fast-growing corporate structures. In various positions at well-known brands I've been responsible for marketing and sales during growth periods. As member of the board and other senior management positions, I have built teams and actually enjoyed leading people. Since 2012 I run how-to-OKR.com and fully specialised on OKRs. Especially in Europe I've been a true pioneer in Objectives & Key Results. I've used it by myself and I'm convinced that a common approach of leadership, focus and translating strategies into actions within an organisation is one key driver for success and motivated employees.

My home base is Munich, Germany. Most of my customers are based in Europe, the Middle East or have worldwide operations.

I bring with me hands-on experience having worked with OKRs for over 8 years at Google. A linguist by training, I have always enjoyed creating structure and streamlining processes. At Google I managed an international legal team focused on content moderation. Over the years, I have built teams from the ground up, have seen larger teams through cycles of change and have managed a global team. I have work experience both in Europe and the US.
While everyone does OKRs at Google, I was actually one of those people that really bought into the process. Today I help organizations adopt OKRs. I am convinced that OKRs can help you and your organization get better results without more effort. It is a process and a mindset shift. It is sometimes fun, always effective.
I’m based in Miami Florida. This is a great spot and not just because of the beaches. Miami is a short flight from the West coast, Europe and Latin America. It also has a secretly booming tech community I am excited to be a part of.
