Short profile

As an experienced C-level manager (CEO, CTO, COO, CRO) with more than 25 years of management experience and a certified expert in restructuring, I take on mandates in the areas of TURNAROUND management, operational RESTRUCTURING and RATIONALIZATION of corporate processes and structures. I bridge VACANCIES at C-level.  
I specifically support you in challenging situations by developing and implementing targeted restructuring and optimization programs with the aim of achieving a turnaround and returning to the road to success. In transitional or upheaval situations, I take over the management of business units and professionally implement the objectives of the management or shareholders.
