I feel that this company values me. Bayer invests in me as an employee, and as person, not only with money, but also with training and development opportunities. I appreciate that.
At Bayer, employees are entrusted with responsibility fairly quickly. I think that my biggest challenge was – and is – learning to be a good leader.
Continuous improvement. I don’t want to be the same person today that I was yesterday. I want to wake up to a new day being better.
I am really a family person. I love spending time with my wife, my daughters and of course with good friends.
I know that being able to enjoy a good life is not a given. I want to enable my children to live a good life.
