Hajo started his career in a small family-owned business with only 25 employees. Throughout his professional life, he grew into positions at corporates with more than 600.000 people - ranging from young startups to established corporations with rich history. He was holding various positions from Mechanics, to Engineer, to Global Project Manager and seen all facets of technical enterprises.
Over the years, he was working with perfectly prepared and experienced managers, as well as unexperienced and clueless managers. This made him realize how important your own standard is and that you have to get there by yourself, since companies usually expect you to be ready but they don't help you getting ready.
His specialization in project and product management made him the key interface between departments and all hierarchy levels. He learned fast how people function and what they are looking for - not always the easy way. He had to deal with many diplomatic games and internal politics that left him really frustrated at times.
With focus on strategy and processes, he enjoys developing businesses and systems, and mentors his close circle to become successful. As former trainer for Judo, holding a black belt, he trained the youth early in skills that not only benefit them in sports. Values like respect, humbleness and hard work are part of his private and professional life and make him a great coach.
