Field of work

Daniel Mayer holds a Master's degree (LL.M.) in Tax Sciences from the Westfälische Wilhelms-Universität Münster and a Dipl.-Kfm. (FH) degree in Business Administration from the private Vechta/Diepholz University of Applied Sciences. He obtained both academic degrees part-time after starting his career as an industrial clerk (IHK) and business economist (BA) as part of a dual apprenticeship.

After holding positions as administrative manager and authorized signatory of the SRH Hochschule Hamm and parliamentary assistant in the European Parliament, he has been administrative managing director of the DBFZ since mid-2009.

His main areas of activity are in the commercial field, in particular in budget, tax and non-profit law, labour law challenges in science and financing issues of a private limited company with public funding. The structural and procedural organisation of the DBFZ with more than 300 employees in complex financial and structural dependencies is just as much a part of the scope of duties as the links of a GmbH to federal budget law and the implementation of several construction measures in accordance with federal building regulations.
