„As a partner at Pape & Co., I enjoy accompanying my clients in their business decisions. I value our open and friendly approach to working together with clients, as well as the open and trusting way in which the Pape & Co. team operates. When it comes to shaping the future of our firm, my focus is on organizational and personnel development.

After completing my studies, which included a lot of overseas experience, I initially worked for an international accountancy firm. I joined Pape & Co in 2003 and have been a Partner and member of the management team since 2007.

I work with a wide range of clients, from mid-tier companies to private equity firms and non-profit organisations. I see myself as a sparring partner for my clients and have specialist experience in corporate transactions, international tax law and international accounting as well as in non-profit law. As a qualified mediator, I am committed to conflict resolution within companies, between shareholders and in corporate succession.

Taking on social responsibility matters a great deal to me. Since 2016, I have been involved on a voluntary basis as a member of the supervisory board of SOS Kinderdörfer weltweit Hermann-Gmeiner-Fonds Deutschland e.V.

I live with my family near the Alps. I love travelling, literature, yoga, classical music and jazz, and I play the flute and piano. I enjoy learning new things and I am always discovering things that intrigue me.“
