improve.r for the sectors Energy and Utilities

Traditional business models are becoming increasingly obsolete: new market participants are entering the industry and innovative products are being sought. The energy revolution requires new job profiles and, more than anything else, different ways of working. In order to find the right people for this, you need not only industry know-how but also a great deal of knowledge of human nature and a feel for potential.

His professional past – most recently with a large recruiting company – also took him to Hamburg, Berlin, Stuttgart and Frankfurt as a sales engineer and project manager for large-scale construction projects. In his role as a client executive at an international IT management consultancy, he advised corporations in the energy sector as well as municipal utilities on the subject of digitization and implemented corresponding solutions.

It is thanks to his outstanding judgement and his consistently positive attitude when it comes to looking ahead that this mechanical engineer and former military officer can motivate top performers for new tasks and bring them together with suitable companies.
