How would you describe yourself in a tweet?

Hunter for new business opportunities in the area of green power and energy innovations with experience from all over Europe and Middle East.

What are the three most important things that have personally shaped you?

Having to overcome illness when I was a teenager made me stronger and more dedicated to my goals. Past 7 years I lived in 7 countries and such extensive travelling taught me tolerance and flexibility. Last but not least, becoming a dad gave me lots of new skills and life insights.

How did the CEMS network contribute to your professional achievements?

I was lucky to have 2 CEMS semesters abroad and that international experience laid a foundation for my further career moves, like getting my first job at ABB. Above all, meeting a lot of great CEMS people, including my future wife, is another thing to be grateful for.

What advice would you give current CEMS students?

Be persistent and innovative in everything you do. Make lasting relationships that will stand for years. Invest in your family and keep in touch with your loved ones, no matter how far they are.
