In my professional life I maneuver in the contradictory context of market and technology. Developers (very technical), users (engineers), sales people and deciders (economists) have diverse perspectives and needs, often speaking different languages. Making those worlds understand each other, enabling successful communication between them – this is my profession. Depending on the organization the job title can be product manager, product marketing manager, business development, or something completely different. I do not stroll between the worlds, but feel at home in all of them. Discussing technical issues satisfies me just as well, as presenting the technology's economical advantages. Rarely that I settle with what I have already achieved. For me it is fun to discover new worlds, may it be new technologies, new markets or new target groups. Creativity and an open mind almost always lead me to the right ideas, thorough research and analysis provide me the facts. In all my activities I, of course, not only rely on my talent. A technical eduction and studies of communication sciences represent the basis, on which my professional experience grows and flourishes. The world is my professional home, because you cannot do international marketing form a desk in Austria, at least not for long. Personal contact direct feedback from customers and partners is important for me, enabling me to constantly optimize my work's results.
