Corporate governance, sustainability/ESG, digital transformation, supply chain management and emerging markets: if you are seeking success in these areas you can rely on my competent support—as a board member or an advisor. At Grosvenor Group and at Henkel I am a member of the supervisory board and at Firmenich I am vice chairman of the board. In the area of digitalisation I am active as a member of Adobe’s International Advisory Board. Until 2013, I was a member of the Managing Board of Siemens.
In the long run, companies can only be successful if they create a balanced triad of “planet, people, profit”: they don’t just aim for short-term financial gain, but also act very responsibly towards people and the environment. Profit is not the name of the game. It is the prerequisite for long term survival.
To achieve the three Ps of sustainability, companies need guidelines, structure and constant transformation. Therefore, corporate governance is core to my work.
