As a service provider we develop convincing digital communication and services, as a start-up incubator we create successful digital products. Our work is dedicated to people and results. Everything else is a means to an end.
After holding several positions at Bertelsmann, Hans founded the agency in 2000. Entrepreneurship means above all continuity for Hans. This requires constant change – and that you remain faithful to yourself and your fundamental values. Hans has a doctorate in economics and is also a classical philologist. In addition to the company’s development, he is actively involved in our project business and in the establishment and expansion of cooperation with partners from research and business. His favorite recreations are good books and racing down powder snow ski slopes.
Although he grew up in Brazil, Diego came to Cocomore from Canada, where he spent twelve years working with IT service providers in e-commerce. Diego's studies in Computer Science combined with his MBA gave him the ability to navigate both technology and business, allowing him to play a variety of roles, from software developer to business leader. His background and international experience help Cocomore deliver high quality IT services to our customers in an ever changing global landscape. Diego is married and a father of three children, and he loves travelling and spending time with his family when not at work.
Falko is a proven CRM expert with international experience as a consultant and in management positions in Germany, France, UK and Switzerland. At Cocomore he is in charge of digitalization projects – from strategy to organization and processes through to IT implementation and operations. He advises clients mainly in the fields of finance and pharma retail. To do that he likes to ride his 40-year-old Vespa to the agency.
Beginning of 2016, Juan joined Cocomore and took over the agency's software development. Juan has gone through all phases of software development and ensures that we deliver powerful IT services and keep pace with technological innovation. Knowing the trends and continuous learning are the most important things for him professionally and definitely something that he enjoys most besides management tasks. He is always up for a chat about frameworks, architectures and all the issues that shape the world we live in. Juan comes from the north of Spain, but he loves Seville and enjoys running along the river and through the Andalusian countryside.
Ela is a backend expert and the best example for the development possibilities at Cocomore: Starting with us as a working student and intern, she then worked as a Drupal developer, Scrum Master and Solution Architect – and today she’s in charge of software development. She coordinates the co-working with developers and project manager, makes sure that the technology is always up to date and the team is in a good mood across three locations. She’s a great Seville fan and loves carrying out joint projects with our developers in Spain – and they’re happy to end their hard day at the office together with tapas and music.
Marc has been part of Cocomore from the very beginning. A graduate business manager, he was also active in corporate consultancy where he learned one major business truth: With the right technology, existing business models can be refreshed and new business fields can be opened. He supports our customers in the consumer goods, pharmaceuticals, education and financial sectors. Marc doesn’t take himself too seriously, though: He’s thrilled with every new Rockstar game and is a passionate fan of the German techno group Scooter – at least as long as H.P. Baxxter leads the band.
Connecting people with brands—this is what Matthias regards as the core of his work: Making consumers more satisfied, brands stronger and companies more successful. He appreciates content that generates resonance as well as user experiences that create added value. At Cocomore he forms the creative teams in keeping with the motto “Agile Creative”: Creative momentum meets agile attitude. He appreciates working cross-functionally in dialogue with data, strategy and development. During his 15-year agency career, Matthias has been taking care of and advising many clients, e.g. in the consumer goods, telecommunications, mobility and energy industries. He received many awards for his work ‒ and besides, he likes music with extremely loud guitars.
Sven has been active in the digital world for more than 20 years, both on the corporate and consulting side. During that period, he has gained experience in various management positions in the area of project management, IT, digital strategy development and innovation management. Currently, he focuses on developing digital strategies, business models as well as services and products. In addition to a high level of creativity, Sven also prefers to rely on structured procedures and tools. When he is not busy looking for new technologies, digital trends and developments, he likes to play his acoustic guitar or - as a real native of Cologne - enthusiastically supports his favorite football team 1. FC Köln.
After her graduate studies and a doctorate in economics, Tanja started at Cocomore in 2010. It quickly became apparent that her strategic approach and her talent of bringing order and structure into the business made her the right person for our central services. She also ensures that the operations side of our business runs smoothly together with our office management and system administration staff. In stressful situations, her optimism and practical approach to things makes her an ideal team player – and her cupcake creations are delicious!
