How long have you been with ITS?
I have been working for ITS from the very beginning up to now more than 13 years. I was member of the core team, as most of us came as training experts from the predecessor of ITS, the Dornier Aviation Company.
What is your role at ITS?
My profession as senior electrical engineer comprises a wide spectrum of activities, such as the creation of Training Concepts, the coordination of specific training projects, including the development of specifications, proposals and course curricula, as well as the definition of the required training equipment. In addition to that I am the Sales Manager for our market Ghana.
What draws you to Ghana?
From my experience as sales manager in Nigeria for more than three years I know the West African region, their nice countryside and friendly people very well. In Ghana itself we have already set-up projects, in which I was involved.
In my opinion Ghana is a prosperous country with a lot of resources and a developing economy not limited to the industrial sector. And for the further development of the country there is a high demand for qualified technical personnel.
Through ITS I like to contribute my share as a professional training expert to take technical training in Ghana to the next phase of development.
It is always encouraging when working with Africans, how young students are motivated and how fast they are picking up new learning fields and methods.
What do you think is special about ITS?
Working together with highly motivated professional training experts of different faculties, team oriented with low hierarchy and flexible organisation structures on interesting projects for better education in developing countries.
What is your personal philosophy that you bring to your work?
The better you know your client in his/her cultural, intellectual and ethical environment the better you can advise him/her to find his/her own way to a modern training and education system.
What do you do in your spare time?
I am interested in German football / soccer and I like travelling to foreign countries, and bike riding.
