Yannic Franken
Ambassador, SAP

No matter if it concerns a project, a negotiation or an organization – I’m all about development. That’s what makes sales fascinating to me and that’s why it’s kind of my red line: I’m truly curious and keen on solving problems. That’s most likely why I have successfully worked in very different settings, from NGO to Startup to corporate. Oh, and also I’m all about music, sneakers, comics and martial arts.

Frank Rachow
Ambassador, SAP

After the realization that I will not be making it as a professional NBA player I spent 5 years at Vodafone before I decided to start at SAP. Whether as a member of Vodafone or part of the SAP- family I´m continuously seeking out for innovations, technologies and new business models. The reason? I like getting people inspired and excited about the things I´m excited about. Right now, for me that´s SAP SuccessFactors. When I’m not on the job, I attend on several meetups and conferences (e.g. start-up pitches or entrepreneurial stuff) and travel around the world with over 26 countries on my list now.

Benjamin Schiehl
Ambassador SAP

I started my career in consulting where I worked for 2 years in both management consulting and operational excellence projects. I gained experience across different industries whereby my heart has always beaten for the startup scene. I have always had that entrepreneur mentality even when I worked for global companies. When I joined SAP I started with an 6 months training in San Francisco, California – the startup mecca and starting point for many successful companies. Inspired by the magical spirit in Silicon Valley I was taught in an unique training environment about the SAP Strategy and how to execute it in all industries and Line of Businesses. The focus is to get across the value our customer get from the solution, not necessarily the technical functionalities. Back at the SAP HQ I leveraged the knowledge I gained in Silicon Valley and continued my journey as an Intelligent Enterprise Presales and Value Engineer. Instead of focusing on one solution or industry I support our customer in their transformation to an Intelligent Enterprise where latest technologies getting combined with an end to end solution portfolio in the cloud.
