    Privacy Plan Execute Control

I offer a solid experience developing, adapting and realizing a Data Privacy Management System based on 25 years IT experience, 7 years as Data Privacy Officer at BMW and some other smaller BMW legal entities and 6 years as Head of Group Data Privacy Protection. As the first company in the automotive branch BMW created under my regime the Binding Corporate Rules as the confirmed best Basis for such an system that enables compliance with privacy laws, especially the European GDPR. The BCR were approved by the authorities and implemented – and supervised – in more than 120 BMW owned Legal Entities with a large variety of branches - Engineering companies, Production companies, Service and Finance companies, Sales companies – in different sizes.
Since 2018 I consult companies, associations and federations and provide knowledge to governmental departments as well - as at the Inclusion Day of the Federal Ministry of Labour and Socials Affairs in Berlin.
