Jo Gehringer was a shining example for me, especially with regard to dealing with people.
The fact that he persuaded me to go work for Gabor Rosenheim together with him in 1988 was the basis for our cooperation.
Despite time pressure and hard work, we had a lot of fun. His appreciation of quality and his dedication to shoes had a formative influence on me.
My friend and fellow combatant Günther Zieher deserves my special thanks. In his workshop, we polished up our line and philosophised for nights on end.

The sum total of my professional experience has set the tone for my daily dealing with people and products.
How it all began
…with me as an apprentice in the shoe factory Oswald, with a broom in my hand, on the search for rubbish and leather scraps in the production shop. This experience and many other things I experienced taught me to really appreciate and respect every colleague.
Today I travel around the world, see manufacturing plants and unadorned reality far away from tourist places. These impressions strengthened my resolve to pursue a new philosophy for myself and my work. I want to develop products that are sustainable as a result of the selection of materials and processing. Shoes should be worth something. When designing and producing them, we have to show consideration for people and nature.
The sources of inspiration for my work are my daughters and the children from the neighbourhood. Living with my family on the Attersee, in one of the most beautiful and attractive areas of the world, gives me the peace and energy to implement my philosophy.
