What is something people in your industry have to deal with that you want to fix?

Founded Patagona in 2013 together with Andreas Frankenberger and grew it organically together with an amazing team until the acquisition by Omnia.

What do you like about working at Omnia Retail so far?
A lot of very intelligent and extremely ambitious people move one mountain at a time.

Brutal honesty and Empathy.
