I was born in 1982 in the lovely city of Munich, Germany. Back in the day, history, natural sciences, and computers always fascinated me. Later on, my interest in programming ignited, and I implemented and directed smaller hobby projects.
At Siemens, I later learned the fundamentals of software engineering. Then I was drawn to the German Armed Forces, where I supported the SAP implementation. After my service, I led the united-domains reseller subsidiary to restructure the value chain.
Over the years, I steadily expanded my skills and responsibilities and broadened my focus from tech towards product management. My expertise is in strategic development, partnership building, and multidisciplinary collaboration.
In 2011 I joined the united-domains Executive Committee, and since 2018 I have been part of the Board of Management, where I head technology and product management as CTO. I partner with my fellow board members to set our strategic direction and to push our growth.
With over 20 years of hands-on experience in leading technology organizations, work is more than just a job for me. As an executive, I love to empower and support my team to develop great products. In addition, helping customers to realize their ideas makes me happy.
Apart from that, I am an active member of the domain name industry to shape the business:
Beyond that, I am an author of 5+ IETF Internet-Drafts and 10+ articles and love to support others. Therefore, I am a supporting Amnesty International member, the German Cancer Aid, Caritas, the German Red Cross, WWF, and Unicef.
During the Corona pandemic, I started a master's degree in E-Commerce and Online Marketing in 2020.
What else to say: I enjoy spending time with my family, reading, traveling, and walking in my spare time.
If you have any questions that I can help with, please feel free to reach out on LinkedIn or Twitter. I look forward to speaking with you!
