(Linz, 28th of October, 2019).
At its headquarters in Linz the mood at Smint.io is decidedly positive after a successful time of late. Shortly after launching the platform with the REWE Group, the usage of the platform far exceeded initial forecasts. This, and the obvious benefits of Smint.io’s innovative solutions in improving content supply chains, have attracted international attention leading to a number of high profile inbound leads.
At an organisational level, the foundations for expansion have been established with Gert Fahrnberger as Chief Growth Officer (CGO) and Nikolaus Rosenmayr as Chief Technical Officer (CTO) recently becoming part of the founding team. Both have underlined their commitment to Smint.io with six figure cash investments in the company.
Gert Fahrnberger brings over 20 years of experience working with international companies. As co-founder and executive board member, he developed, alongside partners, the data analytics provider pmOne AG until its successful exit with 220 employees and a turnover of €30 million. His international experience in B2B enterprise sales will be crucial for Smint.io. Fahrnberger outlined his excitement in joining the company commenting that, “Reinhard impressed me from the get go and I recognised immediately that we were on the same page. It became immediately clear the enormous potential that Smint.io offers in that it provides a completely novel way of purchasing creative content. This potential and the challenge that lies ahead is something I just couldn’t miss out on”.
Nikolaus Rosenmayr is an experienced computer scientist and system architect. As founder and long-time CTO of Nexxar, a worldwide leading agency for the establishment of online business reports, Rosenmayr has over 15 years of experience in the development of software systems that meet the requirements of global listed companies. In his role as CTO he will shape the further development of the product. “I know the demands and needs of global enterprise customers in the IT sector like the back of my hand. For this reason, I know that our disruptive innovations will be welcomed by corporate buying centers around the world”, says Rosenmayr in describing is motivation for joining Smint.io.
Reflecting on recent developments, Reinhard Holzner, CEO and founder, adds, “a top-class founding team that compliments one another and is based on experience is pivotal to ‘fundability’. With Gert and Niki onboard, we have a founding team that is now second to none”.
