Great manager, cooperation lwith Michael was a pleasure
I worked with Michael during his stint as General Manager at Bowne Global Solutions Germany. At the time, we had gone through an extensive search in order to find the right candidate for the job, as we had experienced serious leadership and motivational troubles within the German organization. Michaels outstanding leadership skills - leading by example, his charisma, and his excellent interpersonal and communication abilities paid off quickly. Within six months of assuming the general Management responsibility, Michael achieved significant improvements in employee morale and performance. He excelled as a problem solver and implemented important new benchmarks that drove efficiency gains, thus leading the group into a virtuous cycle of growth.
After proving highly successful in managing the turn-around of the Germany subsidiary, Michael become an important Management asset during the post-M&A integration of 6 different companies across 24 countries. Michael does not shy away from difficult tasks or challenges, to the contrary, he excels in them. He’s a great person to work with, truly inspirational, I highly recommend him for future endeavours.
