Why do you work at ifok?  

A sustainable future depends on a permanent quest for new paths and solutions – and the smart cooperation with the right actors and stakeholders. ifok is one of the key places where you can work on this sustainable future.

Since when have you been working here and where were  you previously? 

I have been here since before ifok was even properly established. Before that, I studied philosophy.

What drives you in your working life?  

Others say that I remain calm in hectic situations, show circumspection and provide the occasional strategic push. The impressive colleagues, clients and partners around me provide me with a lot of inspiration. I get so much satisfaction from seeing the impact that our work has.

What do you especially like doing in your free time? 

Family life, playing the baroque lute and riding my cyclo-cross bike.

What do you do particulary sustainably?

I do my family shopping with a bike and trailer. We do not use a plane for family vacations.

What three things can’t you do without on vacation?  

ATe Deum by Anton Bruckner, Austerlitz by W.G. Seebald and good shoes.
