    I often think back to my twenties, when I sometimes doubted myself and wondered if I could ever make it this far. But here I am. And all the challenges and struggles on my long path eventually brought me here. But my journey hasn't ended yet! Quite the opposite. It's about to begin. As the CEO of Apex Trains, I'll face new challenges every day. And I'll always strive for excellence on behalf of my company and myself as a professional, as a leader and as a guide for my talented co-workers. Together, we'll overcome even more challenges. Let's see what the future holds.


    The sky's the limit!
