Cryptshare appoints Ingrid Hagen as Chief Sales Officer
November 2020 by Marc Jacob
Cryptshare now has their first Chief Sales Officer: The newly created role has been taken on by Ingrid Hagen, who is now responsible for worldwide sales and partner activities. She reports to Dominik Lehr, founder and CEO of the German IT security provider.
The company focuses on an indirect sales model in which technology partnerships are also promoted. Therefore, the management team has been expanded to include Ingrid Hagen, who is responsible, among other things, for planning and implementing the sales strategy with the aim of promoting sales growth. The establishment and expansion of the partner network, as well as its supervision and support, are integral parts of corporate strategy.
Ingrid Hagen has more than twenty-five years of experience in IT sales, specifically in the IT security industry, as well as extensive knowledge in building and expanding partner networks worldwide. From 2010 to 2016, she was Director of Channel Development at Imperva, responsible for Central and Eastern Europe, and was also responsible for opening up and developing new markets at companies such as Juniper Networks (from 2004 to 2009) and Check Point (from 1999 to 2003).
Ingrid Hagen has brought together a powerful team for this purpose: Markus Wolfer, for example, will report to her. He has been on board since spring of 2018 and, as Head of Sales, will continue to be responsible for all sales and partner activities in Germany, Austria, and Switzerland.
With the appointment of Ingrid Hagen, the German IT security provider is again expanding its top management team: Previously, this level consisted of its two board members, Mark Forrest and founder Dominik Lehr, as well as CTO Matthias Kess, CFO Oliver Kenk, COO Alexander Gavrylenko, and CMO Oliver Gäng.
