My experience in loss prevention stretches back over 25 years. Although my focus has primarily been on the aluminum and automobile industries, I've also managed major projects in other sectors, including the utility industry. In addition to setting up a field engineering team for AXA XL’s insurance operations in the EMEA and APAC regions, I played an key role in developing and implementing a business development and customer service offering for our Property Risk Engineering/GAPS team in Europe. I have a degree in engineering from Aachen University in Germany.
