Founder and CEO
Date of birth: 20th November 1972
Place of birth: Munich, Germany
I majored in precision mechanical engineering at the Technical
University of Munich, Germany. After graduating, I got a job at
Philips, a major electric company, and was involved in inspection
equipment and semiconductor manufacturing.
Thereafter, I worked for Japanese support at Siemens, Tokyo Electron
and ICOS Vision Systems.
In 1996, in order to build a comfortable, low maintenance cost house
for private use, I designed and built a "Passiv House"; a concept
that, at that time, was still in its infancy in Germany. When I came
to Japan and experienced the hot summer, I had the urge to build a
Japanese style "Passiv house" for comfortable living standards, while
drastically cutting energy bills. Therefore, I went to graduate school
and studied technology management and Japanese energy business. In
October 2009, we introduced the heat recovery ventilation system
"inVENTer" for the first time in Japan, as the first phase of Passiv
Energy, and launched a business that contributes to reducing bad
environmental impacts such as CO2, while promoting comfortable living
In March 2010, I graduated from MOT(engineering management department) at the Shibaura Institute of Technology graduate school.
Japan has internationally pledged a high CO2 reduction target of 25% and gained high respect worldwide as a nation of environmental achievement. Under these circumstances, I want to introduce high-tech environmental technologies from Japan to foreign countries and vice versa, in order to do my part for the continuation of a wealthy society, even if my contribution may only be a small one.
