Karlheinz Zuerl A native of Germany, Karlheinz has been a manager in various international projects, with well-known original manufacturers in Europe, America, and Asia. Mr. Zuerl's professional expertise in Japan, Korea, China, Malaysia, Vietnam, and India and his blending with the Asian business culture and the Chinese perception of life have enhanced his overall perspective. Since 2005, Karlheinz has worked as a Purchasing Director and General Manager in Asia, where he gained tremendous experience and thorough knowledge in regard to cost-reduction activities, strategy, business development and operation, blended with Asian business culture. Since 1999, Karlheinz has delivered numerous lectures and successfully published books, audio books, and e-books in German and English.

For more than 20 years, he has worked as an advisor, coach, and supporter of companies in quality assurance, purchasing, and business negotiations in Asia, mainly in the automotive, mechanical engineering, electrical and electronics, and electrification business sectors. His focus is to increase profit and quality with his team from Sales and BD, MFG, TPS, QM, TPM, SC, HR, FIN, and IT and ENG.

Mr. Zuerl holds master's degrees in mechanical and industrial engineering. He has more than 34 years of international working experience in sales, restructuring, industry process engineering, and manufacturing, e.g., BMW, General Motors, Valeo, Bosch, Schaeffler, Zapi, RVT, and ABP. He has worked at companies large and small, and consequently, he understands the methods used to ramp up and develop a business.

He is the person to talk to if you have challenges in business development, change processes and methods, setting up of priorities for team skills, EBITDA, turnover, cost, timing, quality, or/and working atmosphere, and you do not know how to fix it in a short time.

Therefore, all his books and e-books are practical and useful experience for all people, who like to deal with culture, communication, technique, strategies, engineering, management, etc.

He has been living in China since 2005 and, as general manager, has headed various production plants and sales units for European companies since 2013.
