About Christian

Christian grew up in Steyr, Austrian and thereafter went on to study in England before moving to the US and later Canada for a role with a major German automotive brand. After a senior management engagement with a large Canadian automotive retail group, Christian and his family moved back to Austria where he started his own business consulting firm, specializing in global business expansion for SMEs.

Equipped with consulting skills, expertise in international business and fine-tuned intercultural understanding, Christian returned to the US and joined YER USA as Senior Recruitment Consultant. He now uses these skills to bridge the gap between the US subsidiaries of European companies and the local labor market. Naturally, his primary focus is on supporting Austrian companies in North America.

Christian resides in Brooklyn, NY and runs his desk out of our New York office. In his spare time, he enjoys playing golf with his son. Winter and Summer holidays in Austria are still a must, so you may run into Christian at a Christkindlmarkt or at a lake near Vienna or Salzburg.
