His outstanding performance and work has been recognized and was called to take on the role as Managing Director of Porsche Indonesia in 2012. Under his leadership, Porsche Indonesia grew rapidly. Excellent marketing strategy and professional management of sales & after sales made Porsche, the company and brand, increasingly popular in Indonesia.

 

In 2020, Christoph has joined the world’s finest watchmaking manufacturer Patek Philippe, the last independent, family-owned Genevan manufacturer. In his role he oversees sales and marketing in the Southeast Asian markets of Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Vietnam, Philippines and Indonesia.
