Sept. 28, 2017

The DACH Business of the Business Continuity Specialist Will Be Managed from the New Location in Frankfurt

Reading, UK / Frankfurt / Main, Germany. September 2017 - Datto, the business continuity specialist, has now opened its first location in the German-speaking market in Frankfurt am Main. The German team, headed by Klaus Kahle and reinforced by the new channel development manager Jürgen Stelter, will continue to drive sales in the region in the rooms directly at Frankfurt Airport. The Frankfurt location was chosen, as the Datto data center in Germany is also located where the company has already implemented its solutions for a long time.

Datto provides Managed Service Providers with innovative and comprehensive solutions for data backup, data recovery and the business continuity problem areas that the "hidden champions" of the SMEs have to deal with. As a result, Datto's success has been explained since the beginning of the year. Numerous new partners have been gained in the DACH market, which implement the solutions of Datto Business Continuity for their mostly medium-sized customers.

New on board at Datto in Frankfurt is from September the channel development manager Jürgen Stelter. He previously worked in leading positions at Seagate and Quantum Storage, among others. All in all, Jürgen Stelter brings 30 years of experience in the ITK sales and channel business. In addition to this, the company is looking at filling another position in Frankfurt to increase the German team.

"Many US-American technology companies make the mistake of not addressing local conditions when they expand. However, from the outset, we knew that we could only do business in Germany by running a data center in the country from the outset and setting up an office there in the long run, "explains Andrew Stuart, Managing Director, EMEA at Datto. "With the new location in Frankfurt, we have succeeded in implementing the second step in our strategy - and the success we have already had in the short term on the German-speaking market is right. The current cyber attacks in spring and early summer have shown many SMEs again how vulnerable their IT infrastructure is and how devastating a long-term failure can be. We help the IT service providers and managed service providers of small and medium-sized enterprises achieve robust and reliable business continuity solutions for these companies. "
