who I am & what I do
I grew up and got my basic education in Austria, Europe and have been living, working and studying in China since 2010. My Background is an overlap between tourism & hospitality management, web marketing and social media – all with a focus on China.
I work on exciting projects in education and consulting for a few awesome businesses mostly in China and the US. Most of my time is dedicated to running BMG’s and GRE’s China office, where I am in charge of all China related projects, trainings, and services.

hear it from them
Stefan has a keen eye for design, impeccable taste, and is well aware of the challenges of an intercultural and diverse mix of target customers – a challenge which he tackles with a high level of professionalism and efficiency. Stefan works hard and delivers impressive results – both online and offline.
I walked away from the seminar with useful knowledge, an action plan of next steps and a better understanding of customs, needs, and services required to be a good host to Chinese travelers. Expertise, first hand knowledge of life in China, and great use of multi media, made the seminar one of the most valuable I have ever attended.
Stefan is an incredible wealth of talent and has mastery of the China market. Throughout numerous projects he has shown a great understanding of how to best put together information for the travel industry and blends his talents both online and offline together harmoniously.
Stefan is among the most qualified people I have worked with: He takes each project to heart, works with great attention to detail, and makes his deadlines while managing several project partners around the globe. His productivity and efficiency have impressed me as well as many partners and clients.
Stefan was an enthusiastic, energetic, hardworking and exceptionally well-organized student. I find him a well-trained, ambitious, and yet very open-minded and even self-effacing young man. He is highly capable of working entirely on his own in a self-directed manner and I am truly impressed by his educational achievements.
Stefan always makes the right suggestions and decisions based on a clear understanding of what works best for the end user. Stefan’s skill set is a well-rounded combination of technical and people skills, topped off with industry expertise in tourism/travel and the Chinese market.

Working with Stefan is simple and efficient:
Great consulting, solid realization, friendly support and flexibility throughout the project. Well done!
I remember Stefan as an ambitious and hardworking student who would not hesitate to take on challenging projects – both, individually and in teams. His performance was consistently among the top students in his class and he graduated with distinction based on his industry research thesis project.
I was especially taken by Stefan’s creative mind and work ethic. He was always well prepared and his contributions were profound and went beyond what’s on the surface. He has the terrific ability to draw his own experiences and observations to develop thoughtful opinions on issues and showed remarkable problem solving ability.
In addition to actual volunteer classroom activities, Stefan has donated countless hours for preparation and continuous adjustment of teaching materials and student activities. He has shown a high level of commitment, passion and empathy for the students, and his professionalism contributed significantly to the whole program’s success.
