Johannes gained a double degree in economics from FH Reutlingen (Germany) and ESC Reims (France) before embarking on a career in financial services. The majority of his 20 years in the banking industry were within Finance & Treasury. He has built, expanded and managed businesses in various circumstances and market environments, working closely with both internal and external clients and stakeholders of any kind. He combines vast practical experience with deep knowledge of interdependencies within an organization, whether they are strategic or tactical. He follows a holistic approach that incorporates regulatory, technical, operational, legal, risk and economic aspects. In 2014, Johannes took his career into a new direction by getting involved in a number of smaller ventures before becoming a partner at a medium sized consulting company.
Despite a seemingly numbers and results driven career, Johannes cares deeply about people and values. He is a keen supporter of humanitarian and ecological causes and gives the best he can to be a good citizen of the world.
