Being Spokesman for Technology, Innovation & Sustainability I communicate what´s new and sustainable at ThyssenKrupp. A fun-job, obviously, in a diversified industrial company employing more than 3.100 researchers and developers. When I´m not dealing with innovative energy-storage, oxygen-depolarized cathodes or urban mobility concepts, I like Cool Jazz, Vintage Soul, riding my racing bike or going out with friends. Favourite football club: Cologne FC.
