Fun Facts & Background
Life before Vizlib: I worked in the field of data warehousing, business intelligence, and analytics for over 20 years. This allowed me to successfully deliver solutions for large enterprise accounts like Deutsche Post and Telekom Deutschland, as well as innovate in the finance industry, in cloud-based solutions and within R&D.
In my role as Managing Director of TIQ Solutions, Ralfocop and Datapunk, among others, I developed my expertise in database and in-memory technologies, especially with leading vendor solutions, together with areas like graph data and AI.
Mission at Vizlib: I joined Vizlib as a Technology Advisor in 2017. And now, I’m on board full time with my promotion to Head of R&D. In my new role, I’m responsible for research, planning and implementing new programmes and technology. It’s the perfect opportunity to develop new capabilities that deliver the wow to all our users!
