I'm excited to announce Michael Mors as our Central European leader. Based in our expanded offices in Munich, Michael will focus on scaling our DACH business - covering Germany, Switzerland, and Austria. He brings with him a strong track record of IT solutioning and cloud evangelism, and we are thrilled he has joined the team at this exciting time.
Since entering DACH, we've added multizone storage capability to our Box Zones offering, as well as the BSI C5 certification to better serve the most security-conscious enterprises. We also recently expanded Box Skills, our breakthrough machine learning framework, for content managed in Box.
Michael has a long history of leadership in cloud and software technologies, including at SuccessFactors (acquired by SAP), SPSS Software (acquired by IBM), and Hyperion (acquired by Oracle). Prior to joining Box, he served as the General Manager of Central Europe at beqom SA, working with large scale enterprises such as Daimler and Syngenta.
"Digitisation and collaboration are the biggest technology trends being discussed in Central Europe today. German companies of all industries, from Life Sciences to the Public Sector, are looking to become automated and digital, and Box is perfectly positioned to help them on that journey. Box is an agile, dynamic and people-centric organisation, and I'm excited to build on the strong foundation that exists in Central Europe."
Michael holds a degree in IT Science and Economics from the University of Applied Sciences, Konstanz, as well as Certified Business Coach qualifications (DBVC, QRC) from Munich Business School. In his personal life, Michael is a passionate runner and frequently competes in full and half marathons. He also serves on the advisory board of HORIZONT, an association for homeless children and mothers in his hometown of Munich.
Join me in giving a very warm welcome to Michael! And if you'd like to learn how Box can help transform your business - in Central Europe or beyond - drop us a line, we'd love to hear from you.
