COO | Deputy CEO | Project Manager
How long have you been working for Dobas AG?
I have already been working for Dobas since 2007.
Where did your career path take you prior to this position?
I used to work in the same area of business. Prior to my position at Dobas I travelled the world with my wife for one year.
What are your main tasks as COO and deputy CEO?
I run the planning and the HR departments, and I have responsibilities in the areas of production, export, on-site installation, deadline monitoring and safety at work.
How do you keep yourself informed and inspired in particular?
I complete export seminars every two years and I regularly attend the «open BIM Forum». My inspiration results from everyday work as I am constantly striving for changing and improving things.
What materials make your senses jump for joy?
The scent of Arven wood is very «homey» to me.
What odds and ends can one find on your desk, which aren’t essential for your daily work but for yourself and your motivation?
I have dozens of pens on my desk which I unintentionally «steal» from other’s workplaces. They aren’t really essential for my motivation though but certainly for my productivity.
Which room of your home would you re-design and which ideas would you bring to life?
I'd like to transform our guestroom into a resting area. I would design it like a mini beach. Maybe with sand on the floor and white sunbeds, large murals with view to the «vast ocean», palm trees and everything needed to convey an impression of a beach.
Professionally speaking, what fulfills you with delight and pride?
To approach also difficult projects in a way so that they can change into a positive experience.
And what floods you with feelings of happiness in private terms?
To explore the world with my family.
