"Real ability comes from experience - and from being open to new things."

Wimbledon, 1985. Boris Becker wins Wimbledon. With his victory, the then 17-year-old ignites enthusiasm for tennis among Germany's youth. The "Becker pike" and the emotions on the court also inspired André Schwarz during this time - and the enthusiasm for tennis continues to this day. When the head of the Center of Excellence Finance needs exercise at the weekend, he is still often drawn to the tennis court. When Boris Becker won a Grand Slam tournament for the last time in Australia in 1996, thus slowly bringing an era in German sport to an end, a new phase of life was just beginning for André: the trained banker began studying business administration at the University of Göttingen. Through university sport, André discovers his love of diving - and learns the sport from the bottom up. Since then, he has undertaken various diving trips, including to Egypt, Italy, the Canary Islands and Mauritius. After his studies André started directly with GAMBIT in 2001 - and remained loyal to the company. The father of two children moves to the Rhineland, then lives in Hamburg for two years and finally returns to his home town Hanover in 2011. However, consistency is only one facet in André's life, curiosity for new things is another: For some time now, sailing has also been one of his favourite pastimes.
