Detecon Alumni today
From when until when did you work at Detecon? In which function?
I joined Detecon at the beginning of 2014 and managed various projects as a consultant. With Detecon, I was able to expand my experience as an international telecommunications expert in the field of digitization. I have supported various ministries and network operators on a total of four continents. Among the various areas in which I have worked are e.g. market studies on communications services, the preparation of decision documents for ministries, political representation of interests in the field of telecommunications, media and data communication, regulation of telecommunications markets, implementation of broadband investments and the determination of the profitability of IT outsourcing projects.

For me it was a total of four very multifarious years with always new and exciting moments. Every day I worked with interesting and competent colleagues and communicated with customers from different cultures.
What company do you work for today? What are your main tasks there?
Since 1 January 2018 I have been working for WIK (Scientific Institute for Infrastructure and Communication Services), a subsidiary of the Federal Ministry of Economics and Energy. As Head of Department for Communication and Innovation, I am in charge of the accompanying research of the BMWi support programme "Mittelstand-Digital". The aim of the initiative is to inform small and medium-sized enterprises about digital transformation and its opportunities and challenges.
What did you appreciate most about Detecon and what do you miss from the 'old' days?
For me, Detecon stands on the one hand for very interesting and kind, but at the same time competent colleagues. On the other hand, I combine Detecon with educational experience in the international telecommunications and digitization environment.
