Profile

Having grown up in Garmisch-Partenkirchen, I moved to Munich in order to obtain a degree in business studies/tourism.

I wrote my thesis on incentive travel and after 3 years with group tour operator Studiosus I felt drawn into event management. I started with atlantik network in 1999 as a project manager and became a partner in 2002. Having managed the agency since, I have been - together with my great team - the driving force behind a wide range of exciting events that took place all over the world. The challenges of all those fascinating projects keep up my excitement for the job.

While communication in German and English is daily business, I can also rely on my French and Spanish skills. And I am particularly glad that the knowledge of Danish that I acquired during an internship in Denmark is still in working order.

What I am passionate about

I used to be the planner of our family parties back home, and I am being driven by the search for creative solutions for those unusual challenges our projects present.

My ambition is to travel the world and discover its diverse cultures, and not only for business purposes. I would not want to miss those numerous encounters with extraordinary people that my travels have brought with them.

My personal tip

Namibia is an outstanding destination for incentive travel. It pays getting up really early in order to experience the sunrise over the dunes of the Sossusvlei or leave for a daybreak-safari in a private wildlife park. Many social projects offer fantastic possibilities to socially engage in this fascinating country. Relive those mesmerizing experiences during a traditional sundowner or "Braai" and bring back unforgettable impressions.
