By looking at every challenge as an opportunity and keeping an eye on the bigger picture. Being on top of trends in my industry to find unmet needs and building a team where each member is world-class in their role.
What are my aspirations?

Combining my expertise in multiple industries (consumer goods and financial services) to build companies with worldwide recognition. And, having a great family – simple as that!
My Most Challenging Moment?
When cost cutting is necessary, firing people is absolutely always my most difficult challenge.
Be fair and generous. Enjoy your moments and, when you get some lemons, don’t forget that lemons have a lot of vitamins!
