Random Facts & Background
Before Vizlib: I have been working in the IT industry in London for more than 10 years – RateTiger, Oracle, QlikTech and Proofpoint. In my latest role as a Sales Rep for Cyber Security at Proofpoint, I've built up the partner team in my German Territory. And at QlikTech, I was responsible for closing deals worth 2 million euros exclusively via Partners.
Role at Vizlib: Partner Sales Channel Manager. It goes without saying that the task lying ahead of me is to connect Vizlib to the Qlik Ecosystem, recruiting as many of the 1700 partners in 100 countries around the globe as possible. I am a team player and always happy to learn and educate others.

Special skills: Network, Sales, Mindset. The core values I'm holding on to are honesty, sympathy and discipline.
When I’m not working, I can be found… exercising and staying fit – running the London Marathon was part of it. Dining and drinking fine wine is always a welcome suggestion, too. I also love cycling, wakeboarding and learning about different cultures in different cities.
Favourite show: there is not a single musical that isn't marvellous! The entertaining Tina Turner musical was the last one I've seen and it was extraordinarily beautiful.
