"Finance, controlling and above all HR - these are areas that need to be managed sensibly. Only in this way can growth be implemented."

Two favourite places could hardly be more different. One is located in the forest and requires being alone and above all getting up early. At the other one there is cheering, singing and sometimes complaining, you are anything but alone - and you have to be there punctually at 15:30 on Saturdays. Michael feels comfortable in both places, both on the high seat in his hunting ground in Siegburg and on his seat in the BayArena Leverkusen, at his soccer club. Michael's love for "Bayer 04" began on May 13, 1979 with a ticket for 5 marks, at the game for promotion to the 1st Bundesliga - and it continues to this day. But Michael did not only remain loyal to his club but also to GAMBIT. After studying law in Bayreuth and working as a lawyer for Warth & Klein Wirtschaftsprüfungsgesellschaft in Düsseldorf, Michael joined GAMBIT in 2001. There, the father of two daughters was initially responsible for the areas of taxes and law as well as the administrative management. Since 2015 Michael is Managing Director of GAMBIT.

Michael Ratte is Managing Director at GAMBIT. He is responsible for the areas Finance, Controlling, Tax, Legal, HCM and IT.

Michael's points of view

About values and appreciation

Decency, transparency, an open communication - these are virtues and manners which Michael particularly appreciates in the relationship with the employees as well as with the customers of GAMBIT.

The honourable company

For Michael, clear and fair contracts are one of the foundations of reliable business relationships. Customers of GAMBIT can therefore be sure that they will not be surprised by the "small print".
