Dirk Stoess

Been with cormens since the very beginning

Consulting focus:
Management, change and sales

Dirk is someone who is on fire. A pulsating power station. Energy is generated when the cormens co-founder works with people. His understanding and enthusiasm serve as transformers for outstanding results. Dirk discharges the rest of his energy on his bike and skis. Or when tasting excellent wines. Function on a low flame? Of course, he can. But he rarely does. He prefers to develop, modify and redesign exciting consulting concepts or sort through his wine cellar.
