What made you decide to work at ifok?

ifok is the only consulting company that understands sustainability as a social transformation process in which not only interest groups from politics, business and society, but also all citizens must be actively involved.    

How long have you been part of the ifok team and where were you before?

I have been working at ifok since 2010. Before that I was also called “The most merged man in the chemical industry”.   

What do you particularly enjoy in your everyday work at ifok? 

The combination of strategic perspective, technical expertise and participatory implementation of concepts.   

What do you do in your spare time?   

On an organic farm and holiday farm in Vogtland, Saxony, I collect suggestions for sustainable agriculture and test them for their feasibility. It’s fun to confront city dwellers with the challenges of the agricultural transition.
