Our new employee: Oliver Krahmer in sales
December 10, 2018
Since November 5th, Oliver Krahmer has been reinforcing our sales and project management. Oliver Krahmer is a trained forwarding merchant and technical business economist (IHK) and has become familiar with the telematics and logistics industry from different perspectives in about 30 years. His professional career stretches over various logistics service and telematics providers. In addition, he brings qualifications as a driver trainer and industrial master vehicle technology to the table. Most recently, he worked as a key account manager for the telematics platform Openmatics. Our copywriter, Barbara Brecht-Hadraschek, talked to him in an interview.
Why did you choose TIS?
TIS has been a familiar name in the world of telematics to me for some years, and I first met Peter Giesekus already a few years ago. The personal sympathy with the management from the first telephone call, coupled with an attractive offer and the feeling of being able to make a difference in an innovative company made the decision easy.
What do you like about TIS in particular? How is working there?
From the very first hour, I felt really welcome and that feeling was getting stronger and stronger every day. It's almost as if I have arrived, the prodigal son has returned home to the big TIS family. Everyone really works together, the "WE" spirit is clearly felt and lived, the colleagues are open and honest, which I really appreciate. And it is quite clear that the management and the owner see significantly more in the employees than just paid staff. I am challenged and was able to get involved from the first day, which gave me a feeling of being really needed from day one.
And what do you do if you are not working in sales?
I take care of my wife's music career, her websites and everything that goes with them. I love traveling, camping and dancing, have been doing martial arts for four decades and am a little poet, writing poems and short stories.
I am very committed to children in Zimbabwe and Senegal, where my wife and I have been volunteering and supporting two organizations for three years. Furthermore, together with my wife, I have been giving free self-defense courses for women, children and disabled people in Pilsen for the last two years. I always have more dreams than reality can destroy!
