I have been CEO of Foucault-Hemmersteen AG since 2008.
The company holds a number of majority shareholdings with the aim to support these companies in development and increase in value while maintaining their own identity. In addition, the company holds a number of minority stakes that are 90% selected according to the principles of value investing, and 10% selected in a speculative manner. For third parties as well as associate companies, the company offers consultancy services, administrative services and other services.
My first tentative steps towards an entrepreneurial career started in elementary school and high school by selling books and creating an inventor’s club for children. Starting in 1995, I look back on several start-ups. Start-ups and investments led me to different sectors, such as education and training, clothing, books, journals, real estate and furniture production.
