First Chairperson

I took my first steps in the 70s in my grandfather's electroplating shop. Chrome has stayed with me ever since. After graduating, however, I initially embarked on a career in marketing. As a creative director, I serviced many brands.
After 10 years in advertising, I then joined the family business. Since then, hard chromium once again became the focal point of my life.

I have been working as the First Chairman of the Vecco brand since 2016.

Other activities:

  • Managing Director Eupoc GmbH
  • Managing Director Hapoc GmbH & Co KG
