Ever since I graduated from Art Center (Europe) with a Bachelor of Science degree 20 years ago, I worked as an entrepreneur and by participating in many projects I learned that projects would have benefitted tremendously from an independent project manager, especially in projects abroad. I was thinking of somebody who understands the client´s way of thinking, shares the same values and is 100% reliable. As a consequence of my experience, I started my own service business as independent project manager and competent clients became customers. Their trust allowed me to act as their responsible PM for various office projects in Europe and the Middle East.
