My own career within the Munich Airport family evolved nearly the same way. Five years ago, I started as sales associate at the international business division. I had the chance to experience numerous impressions regarding the sales and acquisition procedures as well as onsite consulting projects and supported our management during the transition of the business into the wholly owned subsidiary Munich Airport International (MAI). When taking a position in MAI’s business development department, my previous experiences proved to be very helpful. I am now responsible for planning and developing the entities operating on behalf of MAI’s vision. To create a successful and comprehensive business plan, it is important to communicate with various experts and consultants of our team and integrate their detailed knowledge. Only then, we can form a bigger picture combining the strengths of our experiences and kick off great business models.
