Who are these people?

Get to know some of the MOIA team members – how they move around, what drives them, what they want to invent next.

The MOIA team has a strong personal motivation to be successful:
We all love life in the city and are always on the move.

To design new mobility products that enhance existing public transport systems and make urban life more enjoyable, secure and efficient is a dream job for all of us. At our Berlin headquarters we have assembled an international staff of developers, technologists, engineers, strategists and managers that share a global mindset. We have worked all over the world and we know that there is no simple solution to mobility challenges.

We need to re-paint the big picture.
That's what makes it such an interesting job.

What do you bring to the table?

I’ve worked on innovation for multinational and start-up companies in the US and Europe for the past 20 years. I’m having fun building new business models, and I’ve succeeded and failed in doing so in industries like travel, media, and automotive.

How do you get to the office in the morning?

I always try to use public transportation where I can relax and play with Twitter and LinkedIn.

Something you’d love to invent?

The transporter from Star Trek. Despite the many hours I travel every week I hate airports!

What’s your most treasured possession?

I don’t like to admit it, but it’s my smartphone. If I lose it, I’m thrown back to the dark ages.

What’s your favorite urban spot?

Boston Public Gardens: a good blend of nature, people and city life.

Something you’ll finally have time for when cars are self-driving?

Watching “Frozen” with my kids for the 250th time. I can’t wait.

What do you bring to the table?

13 years of experience in the automotive sector. After working in sales and technical development I focused on disruptive topics like e-mobility and mobility services. I love to work on the cutting edge – that’s why I am here.

Where do you feel at home?

I like cities that allow me to escape from the urban setting from time to time.

When you have to wait in traffic, how do you pass the time?

I try very hard not to check my smartphone and let myself be inspired by my surroundings instead.

Is there anybody you wouldn't mind being stuck in traffic with?

Maybe a Buddhist monk who could teach me a lesson about inner peace.

Which words or phrases do you most overuse?

“We will see.”

Best sci-fi gadget ever?

That’s easy – beaming technology. No traffic jams and no lost time.

What drives you insane about traffic in the city? What do we need to fix first?

There is too much stop-and-go on the roads and highways. I long for smooth movement through our cities. The technology should be available.

What do you bring to the table?

Most recently I worked as CEO of car2go and moovel. I am also the father of three boys and can deal with all kinds of craziness.

Where do you feel at home?

On a sailboat. I was born on the German coast and still love gusty winds and stormy seas.

When you have to wait in traffic, how do you pass the time?

I use every available minute for reading – emails, tech blogs, news magazines and books. I even miss trains because I am so engrossed in reading!

Why this job? Why aren't you a cook or a doctor or an underwater salesman?

I think any aim in life can be fulfilling if you are fully dedicated to doing your thing, but for me the question of urban mobility is just the most fascinating mission I can think of.

What superpower do you wish you had?

I would love be able to stop time: One push of a button and the entire world would stop. During my bonus hour I would read, sleep, finish my work or go for a walk. And once my bonus time elapses the world would go back to normal – but I would be one step ahead.
