Organization and team - for the mobility of the future

Organization and team - for the mobility of the future

We are innovators, developers and designers. We love complicated challenges but we love to keep things simple. The LSP team is made up of passionate, creative and top-notch qualified engineers. We are enthusiastic about technology and are always working on new solutions and developments.

Whether we’re busy conceiving and designing software or electronics, drive and control systems, or prototypes, or whether we’re in preliminary development or do-ing just a small batch run, we believe in the joy of team-oriented development and flat hierarchies.

We have finely tuned our ability to understand the wishes and needs of our busi-ness partners and customers and to offer the right solution for the problem at hand. Having trust is an essential element of our collaborative work, and true partner-ships go far beyond just processing orders. After all, people are the most important factor in successfully developing not just first-class solutions, but the best possible solutions, day in and day out.

Work 4.0 or: The organization of the future

We believe that embracing modern working principles can help to attract better people to the company. We believe the results of leadership and hard work can reach new levels of quality. And we believe that the organization itself becomes more efficient, faster and thus more competitive and sustainable.

At LSP we are well on the way to becoming this type of future organization. Our company is dynamic, agile and constantly changing. We are always forming new teams for commissioned customer projects as well as for our own projects. It is not the formal allocation of responsibility that determines the makeup of the teams but the competence, experience and, last but not least, the enthusiasm of potential members for the task at hand. This requires, promotes and creates the freedom and courage to develop great ideas.

What drives us. Our recipe for success.

LSP employs people who are not only mature in their development, but who are al-so experienced professionals or even renowned experts in their fields. We fully trust in the abilities, self-motivation and responsibility of our employees and guarantee the highest levels of development quality by implementing performance principles combined with clean work and quality management processes. In addition, we have developed universal basic rules and a sort of genetic makeup based on our corporate values. When these are observed, they not only ensure the required suc-cess of our projects, but also provide encouragement, delight and a boost to our sense of unity.

  • Studied mechanical engineering at the Technical University of Munich, the Univer-sity of Texas at Austin and the University degli Studi di Roma (1998–2003)
  • 2004 Joined LSP Innovative Automotive Systems GmbH
  • 2007 Head of Mechatronical Development and Prototype Construction
  • 2008 Officer with Procurement
  • 2013 Founder and Head of Motorsports Group
  • 2017 Member of Management
  • 2019 Head of Mechatronical Design

As a native of South Tyrol, my interest in science, advanced technology and culture led me to Munich to study mechanical engineering and mechatronics as well as to spend semesters abroad in the USA and Italy. Fate, or perhaps just pure luck, brought me to this innovative company. After only a short time here I was able to real-ly let my knowledge and creativity flourish, and to contribute, for example, to the de-velopment of a new type of patented electric motor – a highly dynamic motor concept that is still the core and distinguishing feature of LSP products today.

The productive collaboration and very constructive discussions I have with the inven-tor of ABS, Heinz Leiber, have been an invaluable enrichment for my continued per-sonal development for many years. The result of all this is the IBS integrated brake system, which is still unrivaled today. The project management aspects and lead roles in the design department have also made me aware of the various elements of large series design and cost optimization.
The automotive world often takes ages to implement innovations, so I made contact with a successful WEC Le Mans 24-hour race racing team and without any real fur-ther contemplation founded a motorsports group. The core ideas of IBS were trans-ferred directly to motorsports and are now being successfully used by 80% of the Formula E teams.

Thanks to my efforts and the flat and flexible hierarchical structure, I have been able to pursue a challenging career and today, as head of design, I am still fully motivated at LSP to help shape the transition from a high-end manufacturer to an established mechatronics supplier and development partner.

Working at LSP means mastering new technical and strategic challenges every day with this powerful and motivated team. For me the key factors are enthusiasm for technology, courageous and solutions-oriented thinking, and experience and routine in implementation.

If you have a challenging task just get in touch with me.
You’ll love our solution.

  • 2017 – Development Engineer at LSP Innovative Automotive Systems GmbH
  • 2019 – Project Manager Motorsports at LSP Innovative Automotive Systems GmbH

After completing a mechanical engineering degree at the Technical University of Munich with a focus on control theory and simulation, it was quite important to me to continue working in an innovative, curious environment where I could see visible results. At LSP GmbH I found a company where this is possible every day. The dynamic team, the high regard we hold of one another, and the well-equipped development and test benches help us not only quickly design products but also let each individual’s potential and skills to grow.

My first project was developing software for the Formula E brake system, IBSe, where I was able to draw on the wealth of knowledge and experience that exists within LSP. More importantly, though, I was also encouraged from the beginning to contribute my own thoughts, ideas and approaches.

With the great success of the IBSe braking systems came rapid growth in the number of customers, so I got the chance to take over the Motorsports Division in 2019. Since then I have been committed to continuously improving our systems and expanding our portfolio so we can contribute to a greener racing future.

After several positions at large OEM's and suppliers during my studies I quickly chose LSP as the place to start my career. The company really has all the advantages one could wish for: a highly qualified and highly motivated team, the variety of exciting projects and the common goal of finding the best solution.

My first project at LSP dealt with the design of our Formula E brake system, IBSe, which has developed into a fantastic market success and exceeded everyone’s expectations. After guiding IBSe through several performance optimization phases I switched to the Hypercars unit. The momentum generated by LSP’s breakthrough development for hypercars, X-Boost, was then transferred from motorsports to the growing market of high-performance road vehicles.

Are you looking for a custom solution for your hypercar project? Then I look forward to hearing from you!

  • 2008 – Project Manager
  • 2014 - Project Manager Electrical Valve Train

When I joined LSP in 2004, the character of the company was more like that of a start-up. There were five people and it was based in a 3-room apartment in Munich Schwabing that had been converted into an office. The situation improved enormously when the company moved a short time later to Unterföhring and made a huge step towards a more professional and prosperous future.
For the first few years I worked under the aegis of Heinz Leiber on developing and designing a new electromotor rotary valve train. A few years later I took over management of the whole product division and am still heading it up today.
During that time our incredible team has developed groundbreaking technologies and we work daily to find the best possible solutions for our customers. It is an absolute pleasure to see that LSP has become a dynamic company with a young team that creatively tailors innovations for use in specific application areas.

  • Studied Electrical Engineering / Applied Research in Engineering Science at    the University of Applied Sciences Regensburg
  • Since 2018 at LSP Innovative Automotive Systems GmbH

After studying in Regensburg, I decided to apply my knowledge of electromagnetic and thermal design in the field of electric motors.

Arrived at the LSP, I was assigned responsible tasks in a wide range of fields of work from the very beginning. My main tasks now include the design and measurement of electric motors, both for our braking systems and for our high-voltage products. As a result, I dedicate myself to different applications of the motors and therefore I understand the different demands to which motors are subjected.

What I particularly like about the LSP is the very strong system awarenessamong all colleagues. In this way, you can always exchange thoughts with all workmates and develop new ideas and concepts. This is encouraged by the friendly interactions of all team members. Due to the variety of tools available and the excellent working environment, it is always fun to dedicate yourself to new projects and master new challenges as a team.

  • Degree in Electrical Engineering and Control Engineering at the Technical University of Graz
  • 2011 – Joined LSP Innovative Automotive Systems GmbH
  • 2018 – Head of Drive And Control Systems Development

The cornerstone of my technical career was already in place in my early school days. I was fascinated by the connection between technology and science, which is why I really had no other choice but to go get my technical high school diploma from the Höheren Technischen Bundesanstalt Braunau (a technology institute). In order to then hone my existing technical understanding and simultaneously acquire new knowledge, I decided to do a degree at the renowned Technical University of Graz. Last but not least, the absolutely top-notch professors and the comprehensive academic format ensured that I was able to fully blossom in that environment.

Then, like making a match in the game memory, I found the right employer for me shortly afterwards: LSP. Looking back on it all, I realize that I am still highly motivated to work at this dynamic, innovative company with its great prospects for the future. You can really feel the “hands-on” mentality that is anchored in this place, and it not only enables us to maintain a sort of family cohesion, but is also crucial for the success of the company that we all want to see.

Since I joined LSP I have been fortunate enough to get support for and be challenged by my own projects. As a function developer, I initially was able to successfully make all of my ideas reality within a short time in the Integrated Brake System (IBS) department and then I began writing the complex software for a brake-by-wire system for hybrids and electric vehicles in WEC (Le Mans 24-hour race). This in turn provided the foundation for the IBSe racing system that we know today. As a result of my successful work I was promoted to department head in 2018. Today I lead a team of typically 6 to 10 employees on both a technical and disciplinary level. Since 2019, Heinz Leiber (ABS), Dr. van Zanten (ESP) and my team have been developing a new braking system for autonomous driving. Based on that work, new standards will be set in the driver assistance systems segment of the market.

Are you looking for a solution for future challenges in the automotive segment? Need a competent consultant who will fully commit to supporting your project? Or are you looking for an exciting professional challenge? Then get in touch with me! I look forward to hearing from you and helping you out!

  • 2018 – Head of Development Electrical/Electronics

After graduating I worked quite a while as a project manager in R&D in an automotive company in Slovenia. Being a curious and inquisitive person, I eventually wanted to show my knowledge and skills abroad, and that's how I came across LSP.

At LSP I have learned what it means to work with highly motivated and focused colleagues on state-of-the-art projects. LSP makes it possible and even encourages us to work independently, project-related and at our own pace. I am pleased that in recent years we have worked out our strategic objectives with a sense of perfectionism through clear strategy and instruction.

Thanks to the careful selection of staff, the harmonious environment and all the right tools we have been able to create a fantastic workplace, and this is in turn reflected in our products and services. I am also proud to be able to say with good conscience that, “There is virtually no development task that we would not be able to perform.”
