A former sales and marketing manager with German compressor manufacturer Bitzer, Bauer began his professional career in 1988 as sales manager at the US subsidiary of German fan manufacturer Rosenberg. He subsequently spent eight years with another fan manufacturer Ebm-Papst, progressing to sales director Asia Pacific, Middle East and Africa.
