Ich bin Marcus Izmir. Ein Mensch von über sieben Milliarden auf diesem Planeten. Und wie jeder dieser Menschen habe auch ich Träume, Ideale und Wünsche. Ein Wunsch ist, anderen durch meine eigenen Erfahrungen ein Stückchen auf ihrem Weg zu helfen. Ich habe Abteilungen geleitet, Firmen aufgebaut, andere Menschen getroffen, die mein Denken und Handeln geprägt haben. Ich habe Ruhe und Perspektive gesucht und den Aufbruch gefunden. Dabei ist Technologie ein wesentliches Werkzeug, das uns den Weg in eine neue, bessere Zukunft weist. Davon bin ich überzeugt.

I am Marcus Izmir. One person among more than 7 billion on this planet. And, like all human beings, I have my dreams, ideals and ambitions. One of these is the desire to help others proceed on their way by sharing my own experiences and my knowledge. I have run departments, set up companies of my own, met people who shaped my thoughts and gave me guidance. I had been looking for stability, quietness and neat prospects, what Ifound was departure and the spirit of change. I am firmly convinced that technology plays an essential part in showing us the way into a new and better future.
