Q -Which investor do you value most?
JK -Reiner Mauch, he was the first investor I was allowed to meet personally at btov. That has stuck with me. He gave me a very friendly and sympathetic welcome to btov, which was doubly positive - because he is not actually a btov employee, but a btov customer. This sense of community within the btov network can be felt until today. 
Q -Do you have a person who has particularly influenced you in your life or one who has had a decisive influence on you?
JK -My mother. Through her, I am the way I am today, at least in many respects. She is ambitious, has taught me to appreciate the important things and to support those who need help.
