Dietmar Mühr

Managing Director

If everything seems under control, you‘re not going fast enough.
Mario Gabriele Andretti (*1940)
Italian-born American racing driver

Which brand describes you and why?
spotify. Music is my life elixir and connects me with my time.

How do you get to work?
From 16 km distance, "multimodal" by one of my cars, subway or road bike, depending on my mood.

How do you prefer to spend your break?
Since I do not have breakfast, I am always looking forward to my first meal of the day at one.

Who has the coolest Instagram account?
My own Insta account @historicracing is of course the coolest :)

This is where you shop your print media:
I love my e-reader, especially in sleepless nights.

Your source of inspiration?
I think Matthew B. Crawford and Richard Sennett have really inspired me. The philosopher Crawford states that manual labor gives him more satisfaction than an office job and founds a motorcycle repair shop. With "The Craftsman" Senett delivers the superstructure for the dissolution of the separation of practice and theory.

Your favorite object on your desk?
My ideal is the empty desk, but I rarely achieve that ...
