Head of Product

The goal is to make our client’s industry more transparent and efficient by introducing genuinely digital processes.

Bringing plenty of experience, a visionary mindset, a highly dedicated team and an outstanding network to the job, they have positioned themselves as the best-of-class partner for every step of the client’s sector-wide digitisation strategy.
