As a member of the executive board, he was also actively involved in the development of the digital brands jobwinner/jobup, car4you, tutti and localsearch.

Through his company step2success he is active as an independent board member, consultant and coach and supports, among others, Blueglass Interactive, homegate and the Startnetzwerk Thurgau.
