My pronouns are: he/him/his
My experience and deep interests:
I am based in: Zürich

I'm a passionate explorer, curious learner and coach. My curiosity and my drive to leading change led me to work as a transformation coach and leader and in my career I have had the privilege of supporting companies such as Porsche, Airbus, Telekom or Zurich Insurance in implementing a more human and agile way of working. Currently I'm leading the transformation to a new way of working at Mobiliar.

My vision as a coach and leader is to create places where people love to be, learn and create great things together. With my work I'm strongly advocating self-organization, belonging and alignment towards shared values ​​and a common goal. And I think, that as leaders we are responsible establishing an environment, in which people feel safe and in which there is room for re-thinking and learning together.

For me, nothing beats a great team and so I'm also supporting football or handball teams in the Swiss league in the process of becoming a great team.

I love exploring nature with my family, traveling together, philosophizing and laughing. I find balance and flow in nature, while mountain biking, snowboarding or surfing.
