After 12 years of experience in different academic institutes, I was looking for an environment where my contribution to the solution of global ecological problems could be more effective. In 1989, I started my own consultancy.  

Over the last 27 years, I have been able to build up a unique combination of  theoretical and practical knowledge and to become an opinion leader in the field of shaping sustainable supply chains.



I am married with two children. My hobbies are music (violin), field biology, languages (French, Norwegian, German, ...) and photography.
