Michael is an experienced leader in the financial services industry and a kind of wanderer between the automotive, banking and insurance industry.

As a banker by training, he started his career within today’s Daimler Financial Services after his studies and implemented the insurance business in the early 90s. Since this moment, he has been involved in the insurance industry and has held several senior manager roles, including a role as CEO of a life and general insurance company.

He worked for companies like Allianz, Swiss Life, CARDIF (BNP-group) and other companies before he assumed responsibility for the worldwide insurance business (except North America) within GMF International Operations.

Michael has always been interested in new media especially in the sales-area, in combination with streamlined processes towards the backend and has been responsible as a sponsor or project manager for several IT projects.

He is working on digitization and innovative solutions mainly in the sales-area within the financial services industry. He is convinced that the new user concepts regarding mobility and alternative ownership will change the banking, insurance and especially automotive industry dramatically.
