Expansion of the management board at German software company
Markus Grauvogl becomes new CSO at United Planet
United Planet is being reinforced at the management level: Markus Grauvogl is moving to the German low-code provider as the new CSO.
Freiburg, November 24, 2021.
After in-depth discussions, the management at United Planet and Markus Grauvogl agreed that there was a lot of potential for a successful partnership. Since the beginning of November, Grauvogl has been responsible for sales and marketing as Chief Sales Officer (CSO) at the leading low-code provider “Made in Germany” in Freiburg im Breisgau.
“We are very happy that we have found a reinforcement in Markus Grauvogl who fits perfectly to our company and our goals, both personally and professionally,”
explains Katrin Beuthner, Managing Director at United Planet.
Extensive experience, multifaceted profile
For 17 years, Grauvogl held various management positions in sales and marketing in the IT and telecommunications sector – both nationally and internationally. For example, he worked for Telefonica, E-Plus and the Dutch telecommunications group KPN. Since 2015, he has worked as VP Sales at a start-up as well as a scale-up company in the SaaS business, where he has been able to build up a great deal of expertise, especially in the software and smart city sectors.
Grauvogl is very excited about the new challenge at the low-code provider United Planet: “Intrexx is an excellent platform for the simple digitalization and automation of business processes. This enables companies to rapidly build applications using graphical and template-based development. At the same time, we can ensure that core systems and individual solutions are securely integrated with Intrexx. Intrexx is an exciting product that holds a lot of potential for prospects, customers and our partners to help with the digital transformation. Low-code is a real future market and we have the solutions that non-automated business processes, limited IT resources and diverse IT landscapes require. So I’m looking forward to accompanying United Planet and Intrexx on their exciting journey and continuing to drive growth.”
A full-throttle start
He has already conducted in-depth workshops with his team in Freiburg. He is impressed by the corporate culture and the cooperation among the employees: “From the very beginning, it was obvious that we could develop a really good working relationship here. An open, goal-oriented corporate culture as well as trust, appreciation and a can-do mentality, but also a constructive exchange of ideas – all this was there from the very first minute,”
This means that he has all the conditions in place to start his new challenge at United Planet at full throttle together with his new sales and marketing colleagues.
