Her guiding principle is: “I have long and repeatedly been fascinated with the tension between family and enterprise. Mingling factual and emotional topics often casts families into a whirlwind of unanswered questions and misunderstandings – causing them to suffer as a result. It is important to break this vicious circle and give every family member adequate space for his or her concerns. To find shared solutions that will last – for the family and the business. That is my passion and my contribution to our business families.”
