I was born in former West Berlin, raised in Istanbul, relocated back to Berlin and finally, settled in Bavaria. However, sport has always been a constant influence in my life. As a young man I often visited my grandparents in Eastern Germany, the former DDR. Once, I made friends during a football game. After the game we sat and talked politics. Such great discussions attracted me, and led me to study business administration and corporate ethics. After my studies, I joined adidas. This was more than 20 years ago. Since then I have helped to develop the sustainability program of adidas, which covers the social, environmental and community aspects of the company’s business operations. This is why I like to share my views about CSR and sustainability related subjects. My greatest pleasure and privilege is to work within a team of colleagues around the world who drive our work with passion in the countries where we operate. My favorite sport is field hockey, which I have played for many years, and which I still follow with interest.
