I’m a serial entrepreneur who sold his last company to Alcatel-Lucent and now serves as the CTO at grandcentrix, a High-Tech Gründerfonds venture. In 2010, Germany’s renowned WirtschaftsWoche put me on it’s List of Best Known Serial Entrepreneurs and I’ve been added to the World’s Top 100 iOS iPhone Programmers.
I advise businesses, individuals and organizations on how to develop and execute a mobile strategy, use social media and social networks to build relationships.
I’m also a former Editor for The Next Web, one of the World’s leading Technology Blogs and frequently publish articles there.
Clients I am working with include: RTL Media Group, German Telekom, Loewe AG, United Internet, Roche, AXA and many other market leading companies.
Besides I’m known as an expert on all things iOS (iPhone & iPad) and Android. I love the Open Web, Business and Culture.
Here is what others are saying about me. All recommendations are also publicly available through my LinkedIn profile.
Brian Galvin, Chief Technology Officer (CTO) at Nuance Communications, Inc.:
“Ralf is an extremely gifted and visionary developer. He was essential to the success of his last two companies, and we considered him personally to be a strategic partner of Genesys. Ralf is also a well-read, enthusiastic explorer of ideas and experiences, and he easily builds rapport with all whom he meets. He is very strong in customer-facing situations, and he is equally adept at ‘delivering the goods’ – a great engineering leader!”
Elliot Danziger, Chief Technology Officer (CTO) at Genesys Telecommunications, Inc.:
“I have known and worked with Ralf for many years and have found him to be exceptional in many areas. He has a unique blend of detailed technical knowledge combined with a strong business intuition. His drive and enthusiasm are infectious and he adds a degree of excitement to those around him. He is also a strong team leader and business manager that can drive toward achieving the goals of even aggressive business plans. I would strongly recommend Ralf as a key executive for companies that want to drive leading edge technology forward.”
Dr. Helmut Reisinger, Senior Vice President (SVP) at Orange Business Services:
“Excellent professional with hi-level seniority in all domains of call/contact center and voice application matters. Trustworthy.”
Monique Bozeman, Senior Manager Product Marketing at Genesys Telecommunications, Inc.:
“Ralf has worked with Genesys both as a customer and partner, not that those two are ever mutually exclusive. His technical and market knowledge, expertise and ability to use, improve upon and create and effectively demonstrate market leading, user friendly products is impressive.”
James Stuart, UK General Manager at twenty4help Knowledge Service AG:
“[...] I remember Ralf very well indeed from when we were both in twenty4help. Our working relationship was relatively brief… but it had a significant impact on me. I found Ralf to be knowledgeable, helpful and with a high level of integrity – and if I recall correctly, he ate all the biscuits from my office. I am so pleased Ralf is being recognized for his obvious talents and skills. This just shows there is justice in the world. Well done Ralf. One day we will meet up again. I look forward to it. My very best regards. James Stuart.”
