Christopher Pilz, Managing Director Bechtle Frankfurt
Why is Frankfurt an ideal Bechtle location?
Frankfurt am Main has excellent location qualities. The city is the economic and geographical centre of the region. Known above all for its strong financial sector, Frankfurt am Main has a number of important target industries: Creative industries, IT and telecommunications, biotechnology and life sciences, logistics and industry. Thanks to its excellent infrastructure, Frankfurt am Main is not only very easy to reach, but also very well networked. In addition, Frankfurt is one of the most important data traffic hubs in the world.
Nowhere is the pace faster than on the Zeil, one of Germany's highest-turnover shopping streets. But the city on the Main is also cozy. For example, in the apple wine bars, where people meet for a pint after work in some almost village districts. The metropolis is hip and trendy. The trends of tomorrow are born here. Frankfurt's strong international orientation with about 180 nations favours a high-quality workforce potential, which is complemented by international and company-related educational institutions. The 20 international kindergartens and 13 schools also underline the international character of the city.

My team and I deal daily with new and future-oriented software solutions to advance our customers. To make this possible, it requires colleagues with far-reaching and extraordinary skills in all departments of the system house in Frankfurt. The daily work with exactly these people turned many different individuals into a family unit. This is where I found my professional home.
