Rafael’s love for cars probably started with his first Bobby Car and since then never faded. Thus, it seemed predestined for him to study Automotive Engineering and Management in Munich, in order to learn how to develop, produce and sell great cars. While collecting working experience with a premium car manufacturer in Germany and the U.S., he discovered his interest in innovation, which he saw as the driving force behind all great products. In his master’s degree in Scotland and Germany Rafael therefore focussed on Innovation Management.
Rafael gained precious working experience in various departments (R&D, production, production planning) of automotive OEMs and suppliers as well as in the consulting industry. Rafael joined accilium, to utilize his knowledge about the automotive industry and his passion for cars and innovation.
In his spare time Rafael enjoys all kinds of sports and being outside, as well as celebrating his Bavarian origin with a cold beer.
