I am Peter Burggräf.

My world is a PLAYGROUND. Creating new worlds of sand, making new friends, conquering insurmountable obstacles, daring to jump into depths, testing my own boundaries, building new teams, playing and play-fighting, choosing what to do, forgetting about time, having fun.

All those aspects enrich my life. I love finding CONNECTIONS where others do not see any and I do not separate different areas of life.
I love being creative and developing new concepts and structures, where MECHANICAL ENGINEERING builds the foundation of my profession.
I found my field of expertise in production management and factory planning. As a FOUNDER, ENTREPRENEUR AND CONSULTANT, I possess business experience as well. As a PROFESSOR I enjoy passing on those experiences and motivating others to find their own success stories.

My research activities allow me to think outside the box and gain new insights. I am lucky to have a FAMILY with my wife and four wonderful children, as well as good friends, who give me a social environment where I can relax and recreate. Doing a lot of SPORTS also helps me to recharge my batteries. Furthermore, my church plays an important role in my life and in my decisions. As a Christian it is my belief that GOD is eventually holding his protective hand above everything.

Nevertheless we have to worry about the future. But exactly this is my incentive to BUILD A BETTER WORLD for my children and all others that will succeed us on this planet. Therefore, I am constantly searching for ways of contributing to the welfare of our society, such as promoting emobility. Today´s world may be a world of competition where everyone tries to outplay the other but as I have experienced, the foundations for high performance are harmony and a GOOD WORKING CLIMATE. Thus, I encourage my team with my spontaneity, energy, warmth, and enthusiasm to achieve their own goals and build a better future.
