Have very much enjoyed knowing and working with Gernot over the past decade. He has proven as a knowledgeable, motivating and articulate leader: He has also performed well under both corporate and private equity ownership and has actively helped deliver strong sale outcomes to several business owners.
When we met, Gernot was in a sales management role but it was clear that his skills, experiences, and leadership qualities made him an ideal candidate for a general management position. I watched him create and execute strategies across all functional areas of the business including sales, marketing and product creation. I can recommend Gernot to any company looking for a passionate and experienced executive.
Gernot is a high energy, intensely focused Global Sales Leader who has a keen understanding of both domestic and international markets. He is excellent at developing and executing brand strategies that ensures business development and sales growth. Gernot creates a culture of success and is well respected for his ability to put in place strategies that allow both distribution and retailer partners to “win” in highly competitive, global markets
Hands on, clear, direct, open for opinions of others… this describes the way Gernot does business and manages his teams. We have been working together for several years and during this period, our common goals was more successful than ever before. His power to adapt his approach to each and every market is definitely the key to part of this success. It is a great pleasure to work with a professional like Gernot!
Gernot’s professionalism and hands-on mentality is what made the brands in Europe great again. He has a very clear way of looking at things and finding solutions when problems occur. He is very driven and as a result of that he can really motivate people to give their best, both personnel as customers. It was a pleasure to work with him throughout the years because he always goes into dialogue and really listens to what you have to say. On top of that his knowledge of the market and economics in general is extremely good.
