After finishing his M.S. in Applied Mechanics at the Technische Universität Chemnitz, Germany, Joerg was enlisted in the program for future business leaders of Robert Bosch GmbH in 1994. During this program he had his first exposure to the United States on a 6-month assignment. After finishing the leadership program he worked in special machine design capacities for the packaging machinery division and the automation division of Bosch. His focus became the car electronics assembly for ABS braking, ESP, and engine management.

In 2001 he and his family relocated to Atlanta to oversee the implementation and ramp-up of multiple manufacturing lines for daily contact lenses for Ciba Vision.
After completion of this assignment, Joerg started his own consulting business, which he built until 2011, when he was offered to join Schuh Complexity Management, Inc., a former client of his company.
During his career he has successfully led projects in Germany, USA, Mexico, Poland, Wales, Spain and Singapore.
Joerg lives with his wife Tracey and his daughter Jennifer in Atlanta, GA and follows the German Fussball Bundesliga in his spare time.
