The Time Machine – H.G. Wells

I have sector knowledge in several areas of BASF’s business, but especially re: agriculture, care products and nutrition. More generally, I understand the typical problems BASF faces in its office, R&D and manufacturing environments. I also built several successful products within the Corporate Social Responsibility sector, which I launched in 30+ countries across 5 continents.

Please come prepared to our conversations, and I promise to do the same!

Focus, resilience, and curiosity

Success is based on surrounding yourself with the very best people. So don’t underestimate the importance of your culture, co-founders and initial hires. It will make or break your venture.
