..... Netzwert. Born in 1956, I started as an apprentice in a cooperative bank, before graduating as industrial engineer (Diplom-Wirtschaftsingenieur) from Technical University of Berlin. Joining GIZ in 1985, I started as a planning officer on transport projects. Since the 90's
I worked as advisor, project and program director in Swaziland and South Africa, first in infrastructure planning and development, later in private sector promotion. After leaving GIZ early in the new millennium, I joined City of Wiesbaden's (Germany) business development department for some years, before starting my independent consulting career in 2005. I am a member of several professional networks. Since many years, I live in Hofheim, Germany, close to Frankfurt, with my wife and two children.
