With long standing leadership experience of cross cultural and interdisciplinary teams in the areas of humanitarian aid and development, I have implemented projects and reorganisations successfully and sustainably in many countries.

With regard to humanitarian assistance I was responsible for the following projects: distribution of all kinds of aid items (Serbia, Montenegro, Turkey, Sri Lanka), reconstruction and rehabilitation of infrastructure (Serbia, Montenegro, Kosovo, Sri Lanka), return and integration of refugees and internally displaced persons (IDPs) (Serbia, Montenegro), WASH activities (Sri Lanka)

Two projects of particular note:

A situation where I assumed the position as Head of the Mission on an ad interim basis at the office in Kosovo for Caritas Luxembourg, where strategy adjustments and a restructuring of the organization as well as the introduction of ISO 9001:2008 and the subsequent transfer of leadership were the main focuses.

An assignment focusing on the structural development of Caritas Luxembourg’s partner organization, CARLUX (now AfI), in Moldova, which specializes in treating tuberculosis in prisons. Learn more.
