I acquired my 20 years of business and leadership experience at Infineon Technologies AG in Munich and Daimler AG in Stuttgart. I am closely familiar with organizations in which knowledge, innovation and change play a leading role. At Infineon I had the opportunity to establish the Infineon Institute in 2001, which I then led and developed over the course of many years. As a corporate learning and development center, the Infineon Institute was designed to specialize in the fields of strategy implementation, leadership excellence, talent management and change management. During the economic and financial crisis of 2008-10, I also took on responsibility for internal communication. Throughout my career I have worked closely with top management and Executive Board members.
