Screen Taps Ex-Bank Data Executive Anja Hohenacker for New German Office
Dutch market data inventory and usage monitoring platform vendor Screen INFOmatch will open an office in Frankfurt in the coming weeks to offer local support to its growing client base in Germany, officials say.
The German office will officially open around the start of the second quarter, will serve as a local presence to support the INFOmatch product, as well as the vendor’s consulting arm, Screen Consultants. The office will be headed by Anja Hohenacker, a former data executive at various German banks, who takes on the role of managing director for Screen Germany.
“We’ve been active in the German market for close to 20 years. Being close to the Netherlands, we have always served them from Holland, as many Dutch people have the capability to speak the language,” says Kees Brooimans, managing director of Screen INFOmatch and Screen Consultants.
Over the past four years in particular, Screen has grown the number of clients using INFOmatch in Germany, and these clients favor Germany-based, native-speaking support, meaning that the vendor has seen increasing demand for local staff.
Hohenacker has already started approaching clients and identifying new targets, Brooimans says. “She’s the right person to drive the office forward because she has a lot of experience on the ‘Finanzmarktdaten Management’ side, which is one part of our business [Screen Consultants], and secondly on the cost and inventory management side, having been responsible for that at several banks,” he adds. “It’s good timing. Setting up an office in a new country can be difficult and is very dependent on the quality of the people in charge…. We needed [someone with] the ability to do business development and also provide the knowledge for consulting.”
