Our paths crossed for the first time at Etienne Aigner AG in April 2006 and I found myself thinking that Michael Kamm was a fascinating man from that very moment. We went on side by side at Sympatex and have built up 10 years of professional experience together so far. And there’s good reason for that – Michael Kamm was, and indeed still is, a personal mentor to me. He has shown and taught me so much. He has always believed in me and been willing to listen to what I have had to say. On top of all that, he has given me the confidence to give so many things a go.
I am so grateful to him for a great deal of valuable work experience. I have always known he was there for me even when he wasn’t physically right by my side. Even though Michael Kamm is juggling so many important things all at once and is on the move a lot, he always knows exactly what is going on down to the very last detail. The man is nothing short of impressive!
Michael Kamm is an amazingly observant and attentive person, who keeps up with all of his social contacts around the world in a way that most other people could only dream of. He never forgets anyone’s birthday (including mine) and is fully committed to organising alumni meetings and Christmas parties with full guest lists. You can always count on him whenever you need advice on professional or personal matters.
It has always been a huge honour to work with him but it is an even bigger pleasure to know him as a person!
