Combining more than 15y expertise in various industries (e.g. public sector, supply chain management / logistics, distributed energy, and nutrition/food) with highly innovative technologies (like cognitive computing, spot pricing, IoT, blockchain, simulation, and video analytics) to deliver sustainable value to industries. I held various management positions and use people-centric and agile methods in my activities ranging from industrial research, technical pre-sales, consulting, via project execution to people management and education. 

Currently, I'm the Federal CTO at IBM Switzerland and a member of the CTO Europe Team. My responsibility ranges from establishing strategic partnerships with (public) clients, fostering the dialog about innovative technologies within the industries and the public, and to support dedicated projects. Within IBM, I continue to "translate"​ between the "commercial world"​ and the "research world"​ given my history and network at IBM Research.
