Looking for a
Through various management positions in the last few decades and as a founder, I am familiar with budget and personnel responsibility. My distinctive entrepreneurial thinking and goal-oriented work is reflected in all project stages. Numerous milestones document and confirm the success of our methods and procedures. The following project excerpts and success stories give you further insights into our competencies.
Director Operations Germany (COO), Interxion GmbH
At interxion GmbH, one of the leading European Provider of cloud and carrier-neutral data center services I took over, until it was sold to the Digital Realty Group, the management of the complete Operations. As part of Country Senior Management, with a team of 150 internal and external employees, we passed the challenge with the highest level of security and availability to ensure the operation of 15 Data Centers.
Division Manager (SVP) IT & Organization / Authorized Signatory, Deputy Division Manager Finance & Controlling, B+S Card Service
B+S Card Service, the acquirer and service provider for cashless payments at the point of sale, merged in 2017 with the Kiel-based payment service provider Payone, which is one of the 50 fastest growing German technology companies. There, I was able to take over the strategic and operational management of the IT & Organization division for the optimal handling of all card and online payment processes for more than 5 years. In addition, I served as head of the crisis team. The result: a significantly increased flexibility and future orientation at constant costs through the conception and implementation of a new IT strategy with further digitalization of the processes of B+S.
Head of Data Center Airport FFM & Hoyerswerda and operation of all external IT customer systems
After almost 6 years in the company, I was able to look back on, among other things, the successful relocation and reconstruction of all airport IT systems to a new data center, the extension of the existing contract with Fraport to include new value-added services and improvements in purchasing conditions. In addition, I succeeded in ensuring a significant improvement in the cooperation between Fraport and OS through intensive customer care.
Manager IT Infrastructure Data Center, Amigon ICS - Alpha Group
At the logistics and supply chain service provider (including McDonalds Europe) Amigon ICS, I took over the disciplinary management of a team of specialists as well as the technical management of various external employees. In only 6 months, I successfully completed 3 important projects in a significantly high budget range, all in time.
Director Technical Services, Encorus Technologies (formerly Brokat AG)
The responsibility of the technical service of Encorus Technologies GmbH, a subsidiary of First Data Corporation, was in my hands from 2002 to 2005. My successes include the introduction of SW standardization environment incl. evaluation and planning, which resulted in an optimization of time-to-market. In addition, a significant increase in efficiency and performance at the same cost by outsourcing the IT development from Leipzig to Hungary incl. relocation management.
I am fascinated by the possibilities of information technology. For over 30 years I have accompanied and helped shape the digital change in a wide variety of IT business areas.
Digitization and agile working are not „new discoveries“. In IT, these disciplines have always been the innovator and supporter of all business areas. Therefore, the first driving force must not be „exchange“ but „change“. Even with radical innovations, it is important to use an already existing basis that can be built upon. In addition, the human factor is always at the center of successful digital transformation.
I am also convinced that digital transformation can support the necessary sustainability issues and the path to an economically viable circular economy.
In this sense, building a close relationship with employees and taking a holistic, realistic view of customer requirements is our top priority. A coordinated integration of processes and technology is, in our opinion, the key to success.
