My projects

Industrial sectors

Over the years I realized projects of various sizes, complexities and implementation scenarios: I worked in medium business and for worldwide acting enterprises, too - those scaling and measurements affects my customers as well as my employers:

Business people
  • Worldwide banking, Regional banking
  • Insurance companies
  • Mechanical engineering, Automotive
  • Print
  • Retailers
  • Chemical industry
  • Professional services, Financial services
  • Real estate management
  • Government
  • Information technology, service providers
  • Electricity supplier
  • Media
  • Healthcare

Overview

I like being in contact with different customers and learning their individual IT needs and environmental specifications. Because I cover multiple core areas of specialization I participate in many project aspects. As a result, I already completed very dissimilar solutions.
