Christian has been an inspiring and highly effective leader of our firm’s Automotive Sector Group. He devised and implemented a clear strategy and successfully led the group through a period marked by huge economic and technical changes (financial crisis, emergence of automated and autonomous driving, e-mobility, Covid, semiconductor crisis…).
Many members of the group have benefited from Christian’s strong mentoring and coaching skills to build a successful business or manage challenging professional or private situations. Christian combines clear no nonsense advice with true empathy and a positive, enthusiastic attitude.
Christian repeatedly organised workshops for our Automotive Group, where he shared his experience of effective business development, including tips on how to find time for BD, how to capture good BD ideas – and how to identify those not worth spending time on.
The business development sessions held by Christian are probably amongst the best BD trainings that I attended in my 30 year career as a lawyer in two major international law firms. No other training has provided me with so many concrete, effective and easy-to-remember strategies and tips. And the very impressive business that Christian built over the years as well as that of the team trained and mentored by him show that these strategies and tips work!
