What can you tell us about your professional experience and personal life? 

I started work in the IT sector in an apprenticeship for a Service Provider in 1998. For the last 7 years, I was working for Ivanti, formerly AppSense, where I performed both pre and post-sales roles in the DACH region. In my free time, I like to snowboard and ski during the winter, and biking and running during summer time.  

Why did you join Parallels?

Working in the IT sector for years, I am familiar with all sorts of virtualization solutions. While cloud computing IT networks are starting to take off in Germany, there are still too many organizations that are afraid to take on a virtualization environment or cloud infrastructure because of high costs and complexities.

With Parallels Remote Application Server (RAS), there’s a paradigm shift. Parallels RAS is actually affordable and can eliminate complexity by making it easier to connect mobile devices to virtual desktops and applications. The end user’s financial health and IT success is at the center of what Parallels does. That’s something I can really get behind.
