Heribert von Feilitzsch
Born and raised in Upper Franconia, Bavaria, Germany, I immigrated to the United States after military service in 1988 and studied history at the University of Arizona in Tucson. For the past 25 years I have written and published scholarly work about German-Mexican-American relations during the first part of the 20th century. After receiving an MBA from Wake Forest University in Winston-Salem, NC, I also pursued a career as an entrepreneur. I have built several companies from a good idea to multimillion dollar enterprises. At times I chose the security of employment, on other occasions I have taken great risks to follow what I believed in. As a German native who lives and works in the United States with business relationships all over the world, I have gained unique insights into issues that affect management in international environments. As a negotiation specialist, I currently train, coach, and consult sales and purchasing departments of major corporations in North America, Europe, and Asia. My wife and I live in Winston-Salem, NC.
