Frank's career is all about Food and Innovation: Currently he is leading Amcor's Corporate Venturing & Open Innovation department. Previously he held several senior management positions at Nestlé. He has in-depth understanding of how to make R&D focused start-ups big in the food industry and how to successfully develop profitable consumer goods for a global market.
Frank holds a PhD in Physics from ETH Zürich (Switzerland) and a master’s in physics from University in Cologne (Germany). He started his career as a strategy consultant at McKinsey in Zurich before joining Nestlé in 2003.
Frank is interested in food innovations (of course!) but also art and culture as well as travelling. Frank especially loves to “connect the dots” and bring ideas and people together across the globe.
Frank lives with his wife and their son in Zurich (Switzerland).
