We worked together
Volker is a charming intelligent individual that as well known and respected in our field. His depth of knowledge and analytical brain allow ... s him solve complex problems. His communication skills are brilliant and his use of the english language (not his native German) is far better than mine! Volker has helped myself with business plans, negotiations and strategy. I would not hesitate to recommend Volker for any lead role within an organisation.
