Short Biography - Reinhard Hamburgers' Career
After graduating as Diploma Engineer in Telecommunications in 1979 I worked 27 years for Hewlett-Packard and Agilent Technologies; most of the time I had global business responsibilities.
I held leading management positions in various business segments in test and measurement. My key experiences are in marketing and general management.
In addition to my business leadership work I am active on various boards and bodies.
My career at HP and Agilent Technologies always had an international focus. I have conducted business in Europe, USA, Japan, Taiwan, Singapore, Korea and China. For two years I lived in the US and for another 2 years I led a Japanese business unit.
Over the course of 15 years I succeeded in developing the Germany-based HP/Agilent Semiconductor Test Business basically from scratch to revenues of around US$ 500 million, establishing HP/Agilent as one of the global market leaders in this market.
After becoming one of four directors of the newly formed Agilent Technologies Deutschland GmbH, - a spin-off from Hewlett-Packard in 1999 - I was the Country Manager for Agilent Technologies in Germany from January 2003 until June 2006. During this time Agilent Germany had revenues of over US$ 1 billion and more than 2,000 employees.
In 2007 I started my own business, creating »C-FOR-U - Reinhard Hamburger - Business Coaching«. Since then I am applying my business experience to support especially the owners and managing directors of SMEs in topics like strategy and leadership as well as to start-ups. Apart from this, I am active in various supervisory boards and advisory boards since more than a decade as well as in a number of non-profit-organizations.
