Directeur Stratégie Europe
I got to know Andreas when I joined Akebono Europe in 2013. After heading the R&D activity for several years, he had just been requested to put a project management system in place for the group in Europe. As the project management office VP, he has put project management in place and has been heading the team of project managers in France and Germany. He has also helped deploy project management on a global basis, particularly with his US and Japan counterparts. Being at the same time "hands on" and part of the management committee, Andreas has been able to give his project managers the right level of support in their operational activities, as well as to escalate and secure support from upper management when necessary (escalation of "red" items). A global player speaking fluently German/English/French with a keen knowledge of the automotive industry, I would highly recommend Andreas to any company willing to enhance its project management system in a complex organization.
