Christian Eder’s main focus in the sales area will be directed at the further development of congatec’s successful multi-channel sales strategy, which encompasses both partner and direct sales. “In 2010 we will above all be concentrating on new, expanding markets.

Supported by congatec’s experienced sales team, this year we will be consolidating and expanding our market position.”
“I am delighted that Christian is prepared to take on responsibility for sales in the EMEA sector, on top of his marketing duties. Few people know the company and the market as thoroughly as Christian, and I am certain that he will fulfil his new task just as successfully as he mastered the marketing challenges”, said Gerhard Edi, CEO of congatec AG.
