Axel grew up in Berlin and returned to the states to complete his degree in Hotel Management at the University of Massachusetts. He went on to enjoy a 25–year career as V.P. of Sales and Management, opening new Hyatt, Hilton, and Swissotel’s all over the world.
He and his wife visited many Florida cities before deciding Sarasota would be the ideal destination to pursue his lifelong interest in pre-Colombian art, as an Antiquities Dealer. HSSC is fortunate that Axel is also quite a dog-lover and he now takes time from his hectic business schedule to walk and matchmaker dogs several times each week. His sales and marketing expertise, combined with his considerable canine knowledge, enable him to be quite effective when suggesting proper pairings between potential adopters and man’s best friend.
Axel is especially fond of the “bully” breeds, so it is no wonder why we appreciate his efforts on our behalf so much.
