About me

I was active as a marine engineer before I joined Germanischer Lloyd ( today: DNV GL) in 1994. I could continuously broaden my practical and theoretical knowledge in ship operation engineering there with the result to become a specialist for damage management resp. the related repair technics. I was appointed as independent expert worldwide and acted as a court expert in that time as well.

Working out tailor made solutions is one of my core competences. Here asking the right questions and an irrespective assessment of the relevance of infor-mation details are my approaches to find the solution for a problem together with clients and/or colleagues. I acquired the opinion that every damage must be taken as an obligation to learn from it. Prevention is the most important consequence from a damage case.
I acted as internal lecturer in course of Surveyor`s training and held seminars about damages and repairs in ship’s machinery
