About me

I live in Germany in the Heidelberg area where my family keeps me on my toes. In July 2021 I joined HypoVereinsbank as Head of Digital Security / CISO (Chief Information Security Officer). My teams govern the information security posture to protect clients, employees and company assets. During my previous career in consulting at KPMG and McKinsey I helped clients globally resolving cyber security challenges especially covering cyber operations, regulatory compliance, information security risk assessments and risk reporting. Before I worked at Deutsche Bank AG in IT security, IT and banking operations in Europe, Asia, and the United States. As CSEP Columbia University of New York alumni, I maintain active relationships with managers and love to enrich my work with outside competence. I hold the CISA certificate (Certified Information Systems Auditor) of the ISACA organization. In my free time I spend time with my family, play tennis and like to bike.
