Helmut Jäger (Austria/Construction) and Dietmar Pircher (Italy/Construction)

Helmut Jäger (HE): “It was a great advantage to have a young spirit in the team and at the same time a person who already had knowledge in the construction sector.

Both agreed that a business needs planning, but one has to react fast to adapt the plans if necessary.” Weiterlesen …
