How Carsten is building a better working world

“Ever since I became a treasury consultant, enhancing the significance of the treasury function’s transparency, for companies and shareholders, has been the driving force of my work. Once everyone involved comes to understand the importance of treasury, it will lead to a greater appreciation of the treasury function and the day-to-day work of treasury employees, particularly in light of the ongoing digitization trend.”
