How Tobias is building a better working world

“Building a better working world is much more than a slogan for me. Together with my team, I work on topics that constitute major risks for EY clients every day. We can make a significant contribution to overcoming these risks so that clients can sleep at night.

Driven by technological innovation, complex new global supply chains, increased environmental concerns and a new generation of protectionist trade practices, global manufacturers are having to fundamentally reassess and redesign their market strategies, how they manage risk and how they comply with the plethora of changing laws, regulations and rules of the game.

These impacts each have the potential to become a great opportunity or a great risk. I intend to help prevent decision-makers from falling into a trap and risking their whole business by making the wrong decisions.“
