What's important to me:

I really enjoy sports and exercising in nature. I would like to convey this in public as well as in private. I am particularly motivated to achieve my goals in sports. This is also extremely important for other areas of life. I also try to protect natural resources as best I can and to think about sustainability. After all, this is an important issue that affects us all. I enjoy spending time with my family and I try to take maximum advantage of the little time I have.  

Six years and two sports: Viessmann has stood behind me professionally for many years and also supported me when I switched to biathlon. I am glad that I can continue to be part of the Viessmann family.
