Client Partner / Senior Account Manager

About Candidate

Dear Community,

with my over 7 years of working experience, I had already the opportunity to work in countries like Germany, Norway, China, Vietnam, Austria & Spain. This was always due to the fact that I sought working for companies that encouraged me on my career path. Hence, I worked for small, medium sized and enterprise companies. I started my journey in the machinery trading and changed to IT consultancy with a focus in Salesforce, from which I moved back to becoming a client partner. I became passionate in IT but not only on the technical but also on the functional level and understood, where customers see trends and needs. Therefore I see my major expertise in Sales, Business Development, Consultancy, technical advisory & Staff Management.

Furthermore I had my own startup for two years where I learned how difficult but also rewarding it is to build up your own company from scratch.

If my profile sounds interesting, I am always happy to connect!
