When I was working with Jochen he was responsible for our project portfolio management as well as the quality management group in a very difficult and hardly managed environment.

To sustain in such an environment and being responsible for two key areas was not an easy task for Jochen and only due to his outstanding knowledge and personal involvement he actually managed a turnaround and implemented both streams successfully. He was not only able to implement the quality group – against tremendous resistance – but also positioned the group as an accepted partner eye to eye with the rest of the team. Even more so Jochen outperformed in his role our portfolio manager and implemented a best in class portfolio management and oversight which allowed Jochen and his team to present the portfolio status in a transparent and on time manner.less
