Finding solutions beyond the obvious​

I’m a very active person with a positive and curious attitude towards exploring new things. Nature, friends, and different sports help me switch  off from work. As an enthusiastic climber, I consider myself a problem solver both on and off the job. Knowing one’s own strengths and shortcomings, as well as finding the optimal solution,  is often the key to success when tackling a bouldering problem. The same is true for making the smartest strategic choices in business.​

In the forefront of evolving bio-based industry

I feel privileged to work with Vision Hunters and to be able to actively support the companies in bio-based industry to succeed and develop their businesses. I enjoy working with changing topics, learning new things, and finding a solution beyond the obvious. Working surrounded by motivated and talented colleagues, supporting companies in their strategic decision making, what could be a better way to make a difference within this fine industry of ours?

Place for professional growth

Vision Hunters is an excellent place for advancement and professional growth. I started as an analyst and have been encouraged to define my own professional growth path from the very beginning. I’ve been given both support and opportunity to challenge myself. As a project manager, I am responsible for designing, executing, and completing projects with the assigned team within the scope and timeline. Each project has its own set of complexities making excelling at project work highly motivating.
