During the years 2000 and 2001, when I lived in Argentina, I realized the disastrous impact of corruption on democracy, the rule of law and citizens. The financial loss for national economies and tax payers are enormous all over the globe. Austria loses 17 billion euros on corruption per year (Prof. Friedrich Schneider, “Johannes Kepler Universität” Linz).
My consultancy on corruption prevention shall contribute to the vision of replacing corruption in Austria by ethical values such as integrity and, eventually, compliance.
My international experience of 13 years in the US and the UK, in Argentina, France, Spain, Italy, Germany and Switzerland did not only enhance my excellent language skills in English, Spanish and French. I also completed a Bachelor’s and a Master’s degree in London and California, respectively. Additionally, I worked in different areas in the business sector, in various educational institutions including universities, in international organisations and NGOs. Many years of lecturing add to my profile.
I gained work experience in anti-corruption, inter alia, during my multi-year employment in the Federal Bureau of Anti-Corruption (BAK) of the Federal Ministry of the Interior in Austria. Moreover, I am a Certified Compliance Officer.
