HI GEORGE, THE MOST IMPORTANT QUESTION FIRST: WHAT DID YOU WANT TO BECOME AS A KID?
A professional football player.
WHAT IS YOUR BIGGEST STRENGTH AND WHAT IS YOUR BIGGEST WEAKNESS?
My biggest strength is that I’m very passionate and involved in what I do. My biggest weakness is that I can’t really let things go easily.
HOW DOES A REGULAR WORKDAY LOOK LIKE FOR YOU?
A regular day for me is action-packed. And very diverse – from approving TV commercials or defining marketing strategies to discussing technical processes and testing TV apps! I’m involved in a lot of cool aspects of our products.
WHAT WAS THE BIGGEST CHALLENGE YOU HAVE OVERCOME SO FAR?
Moving our company towards a more content-centric approach.
HOW DO YOU DEFINE SUCCESS?
When I feel proud about what we have achieved together. And when my 2 boys tell me that they also want to work for CLIQ when they grow up because they like our cloud games a lot 😉
WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU GIVE TO SOMEONE TO ACHIEVE THEIR PROFESSIONAL GOALS AND MAKE THEIR DREAM COME TRUE?
It’s hard not to give an answer to this question that’s too cliche but here we go: put in the work and dedication and never let go. There are no shortcuts.
WHAT ARE YOU MOST PROUD OF REGARDING CLIQ?
The people and the synergy we create together. And also our new platform Cliq for the DACH region. We invest a lot of energy and work with passion to shape the future.
WHERE IS THE COMPANY TODAY VERSUS WHERE YOU THOUGHT IT WOULD HAVE BEEN 5 YEARS AGO?
Exactly where I hoped it would be – the people around me know this since we spoke about it 4 years ago already. So, it’s actually amazing to be able to give this answer. Maybe envisioning things really works. Strike the maybe.
WHAT MAKES YOU TRULY HAPPY?
A lot of things actually. I’m fortunate because I can enjoy different things in life. I always wake up a happy guy!
DESCRIBE HOW YOU ENVISION A REGULAR MONDAY IN 5 YEARS?
Calling my colleagues Christine, John, Marc, Minh and Dorit, who all work closely with me on our new platform Cliq to discuss weekly progress and spending my free time with my family under palm trees.
WHAT’S YOUR PERSONAL FAVOURITE CONTENT ON CLIQ AT THE MOMENT?
I love the games section because my sons are so proud of it – they even tell the other kids in school. As for myself, I’m so impressed with the movies and series vertical that I often kick back on the couch to watch. And I go jogging with our music playlists. The perfect mix for me. I know I sound like a salesman but I work in Marketing, it’s what I do best! 🙂
