How SPORT 2000 distributes Facebook advertising budgets to hundreds of retailers via a central platform
Three different characters with common goals: growth, innovation and continuous development. Each of them tirelessly pushes ahead with their respective business areas and displays a great deal of passion in the process. One cultivates customer contact, another optimises internal processes and the third is constantly developing our software. We introduce: Sascha Böhr, Fatih Temel and Thorsten Zeutzheim.
Sascha is the face of the company. He is our “visionary”, who founded the company 247GRAD Labs in 2013 as a spin-off of his agency 247GRAD. In 2017, followed the big re-branding and the establishment of dirico as an independent brand. Sascha then withdrew more and more from the operative business of the agency 247GRAD in order to concentrate fully on dirico. As managing director, he is now responsible for the areas of marketing, sales, customer success and consulting.
Thorsten, the chief developer of the house, is also a dirico legend. He makes sure that all the wheels mesh together in the “engine room” (which is what we internally call our development department). The Azure Cloud expert is primarily responsible for the development of our software and thus also for the development, product management, support, quality assurance and in-house IT teams.
„From the very beginning of developing dirico, we have paid attention to using future-oriented technologies.“Thorsten Zeutzheim, Co-Founder & CTO
Fatih is our “man for order and structures”. He is responsible for HR, finance, operations, business intelligence and office management. The WHU graduate joined dirico as a freelancer and external consultant. It quickly became clear to him that he wanted to become an integral part of the company. And Sascha noticed that Fatih can perfectly complete the management team.
Three very different characters, who have different approaches and do not always agree with each other. But it is precisely these differences that make up the management team. Because at the end of the day, all three have the same goal in mind: the success of our company!
„We are all very different, which is interesting. Everybody works differently. But that is exactly what the company needs.“Fatih Temel, COO
What is particularly important to the three in the management is that the employees enjoy working at dirico and can identify themselves with their job and the company.
„Only if we continuously develop, we can build a lastingly successful company, in which the employees like to work and especially work long-term.“Sascha Böhr, CEO
Above all, value is placed on open communication and the team spirit of the entire team. Regular meetings, in which the entire team is informed about cross-departmental topics, are an integral part of dirico.
There is also a major team event every six months to strengthen the team spirit. Of course, our colleagues from Romania (where we have established a second location with several software developers in 2019) are also invited.
In addition to the virtual meetings that take place daily between our locations in Koblenz and Oradea, Romania, these joint events strengthen the feeling of togetherness – even if our offices are more than 1,000 km apart.
Sounds like a great employer, doesn’t it? We are continuously growing, which is why our job page is usually filled with exciting job offers. Just take a look and submit an application directly online!
And if you want to learn more about the history of 247GRAD and dirico, you should listen to the Koblenz podcast “Rund ums Eck”. In the first episode, Sascha Böhr talks to Alexandra Klöckner about entrepreneurship, the Koblenz location, corporate culture and the vision for the two companies.
