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.
The Motörhead coffee cup and the drumming of his fingers to a beat can be deceptive: Jens is a hard-hitting strategist who keeps the KPIs strictly in view from the beginning to the end of a project, because every solution must bring measurable added value. He has supported our customers on their individual roads to digital transformation since 2001. His studies of mathematics, political science and philosophy serve him well, as does his Swabian spirit. When Jens isn’t developing concepts for our customers, he can be found riding through the woods on his mountain bike.
Equipped with paper, whiteboard, highlighter and sticky notes, Jens works best in a team composed of different skills, talents and characters. He heads our cross-site Creative Division. Diversity and flexible development in interdisciplinary teams for the resulting products and services are particularly important for Jens. He gained his extensive experience in product development and innovation management at various agencies and as a freelance UX Director.
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.
Katrin has been with Cocomore since January 2019. As COO (Chief Operating Officer) she pulls the strings in the background and ensures that Cocomore has the right resources for its exciting projects. She plans and organises the entire agency infrastructure and manages Human Resources, Central Services, Finance & Controlling, Corporate Communications and Strategic Business Development.
Katrin has worked and lived in Buenos Aires, Houston, Hamburg and Madrid. When she's not working, she goes on discovery tours, looking into the cooking pots of the world and repeatedly finds out that a year without snow-capped mountain peaks and ski slopes is a lost year.
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!
