​Jonathan Kocar, a native German speaker, found a passion in foreign languages as a young man living and travelling through the United States. The nuances of the English language inspired him to pay close attention to how language is used and formed, creating a foundation for his career.

Building on this foundation, he worked on numerous international projects of varying intensity and duration. Each project was different, but always revolved around the scope of Lean Management. This has given Jonathan a deep understanding of the professional and technical aspects of the English language.
