I work since 12 years exclusively as executive coach and have more than 30 years business development and international consulting experience.

As consultant I worked as a partner of the Hay group aiding the development of the business in Germany and leading international consulting assignments in industry and public administration. I also founded and managed my own consulting company in Germany focusing on strategy- and organisation development & HR company policies.  After 20 years we sold the company to PwC.

In my present coaching I take executives on a well-defined journey that accelerates their leadership effectiveness and professional career based on their individual competencies, creativity and energy. My coaching style aims at exploration of personal styles and professional skills to create a holistic and authentic view of leadership and attain solid results. As a client you clarify complex situations and prompt practical and creative solutions stretching your paradigms as a leader.

As career coach I have supported over 500 executives and professionals in reorienting their business direction and finding a new meaning in life.

As mentor and supervisor I support coachs, consultants and HR professionals in improving their coaching competencies in servicing their clients.

Presently I am a member of the board of ICF-Switzerland and have served 4 years as the ICF chapter leader in Bern.

In 2013 I published "Secrets of Entrepreneurship" (also available in German) on successfully transitioning from employee to entrtepreneur. The book is based on interviews of 50 entrpreneurs showing their stories on success.

I am Swiss and Austrian, am passionate to walk in the Swiss mountains, am a fan of American movies of the 60's and naturally I love (Austrian) classical music & American Jazz.
