About me

As a biologist, I’m from nature curious and well trained to analyze and solve problems. Moreover my projects abroad gave me the possibility to adapt quickly to new cultures and to learn new languages.

My experience in a IoT young start-up gave me the possibility to gain a broad working experience. In my role as a marketing & sales manager & lead biologist I had the possibility to work in many fields:

  • marketing (incl. funding)
  • sales (incl. key account management)
  • PR
  • CRM
  • forecast of production
  • logistics
  • requirement engineering
  • coordination of scientific experiments


Being able to work in such different topics made me an all rounder, that is able to see the tight connection between the various fields, keeping in mind the picture of the whole.

My work at EY further strengthened my cross-field abilities giving me the possibility to work in different projects with different clients. I was able to establish good and long-lasting relationships with our clients and participate to various internal initiatives and studies which gave me a solid know-how within the financial industry.

Beside work, I achieved the diplomas as sales specialist and marketing director. These give me a great theoretical background to understand all key processes needed in a business and the strategic decisions that underlie a successful company. I keep using the acquired know-how at my daily work at EY and in my spare time to help young entrepreneurs in their go-to-market strategies, business plans or marketing campaigns.

Coming from the IoT space and always having been very interested in technology, I always look forward to learning more about new trends and connecting with people sharing my passion. I truly believe that exchanging experiences is a great way to open our minds and accelerate our development.
