I was bitten by the IT bug as youngster. My first steps were taken on the Atari 800 XL and 130 XE micro computers before moving into the professional world of application development and network technology at the start of the new millennium. I later developed a passion for marketing and design and used the opportunity to switch careers. After three years working for an agency and more than five in marketing for automation technology, I started in the marketing team responsible for the European locations at the Bechtle subsidiary, ARP, in June 2018. Since 2019, I’ve been located at the Bechtle headquarters in Neckarsulm. From 8-bit to blockchain—I was there.
