Quality over quantity.
To present relevant information transparently, while avoiding information overflow and inconsistencies, is a tremendous challenge for capital-market-oriented companies. The increasing regulatory requirements and expectations of investors reinforce this. As part of the “Investors’ Darling” competition for the German market and the competition “Austrian Financial Communications Award” for the Austrian market, me and my team analyze the financial market communication of capital-market-oriented companies. The goal is to identify the effective and investor-oriented communication strategy. In addition to this, my research focuses on issues of international accounting and corporate governance.
After completing my studies at the Westfälische Wilhelms-Universität Münster, my audit activity at a Big4-company, as well as postdoctoral studies at the TU Clausthal, I accepted the professorship at the Chair of Accounting and Auditing at HHL Leipzig Graduate School of Management. I also work as a guest professor at the University of Vienna in the field of “Selected Foreign Accounting Systems”, and I am a member of several scientific and professional organizations in the field of accounting, auditing and corporate governance.
