Role model:

I can’t think of a single individual I would call my role model. But of course, I’ve learned a lot from some amazing people.

What's important to me:

Spending time with my family and my girlfriend is very important to me. I am thankful that we are all alive and well, and I hope we will remain so for a very, very long time.

It also makes me stronger to have a solid, loyal partner at my side for all the other challenges that lie ahead. Thanks, Viessmann!
