the company’s headquarters in Frankfurt.

as Senior Vice President and, later, as Executive Vice President. In 2004.

I reached the „C-level“ as Chief Human Resources Officer, CHRO, including the position as Managing Director of the
Steigenberger Academie.

IN 2009 followed my appointment as the Executive Vice President and Chief Development Officer, CDO FOR THE

I was further entrusted with the positions as Managing Director of the Steigenberger Consulting GmbH and of the D.H.
