About me

Herbert Salzmann

Ever since my first professional days in a travel agency I have enjoyed working with people and satisfy their needs.

Having gained international experience both professionally and privately has certainly shape who I am today in terms of understanding the demands within a corporate environment with regards to mobility whether that has to do with a car fleet, mobile communication, or travel management.

There is no surely no success without an employee-focused mindset because as Richard Branson wisely said:

“Clients do not come first, Employees come first. If you take care of your employees, they will take care of the clients.”

There are many consultants out there who have a clear focus on commercial gain, however, nowadays managers forget about the human side and that is where I come in to remind the leaders to act with an employee-centric mind.

That can evolve through firing up their creativity or simply to detect new and promising potentials and prospects respectively. Overall, it is about a balancing act between commerce and humanity.
