VÄLKOMMEN
Hi, welcome to my tiny Website, thanks for stopping by. I’m Gerrit Pohl, a C-Level Executive in Digital Business living in Munich, Germany, with a deep passion for Science, Mathematics, collecting Records, restoring old Lever Espresso Machines and travelling to the Nordics. Tack så mycket för att du kom hit. Regarding Espresso, I have a few quick recommendations. Great home machines are available from La Marzocco and Victoria Arduino, perhaps not quite cheap, but durable and with the best results. Very good beans are available from Munich’s very own Man Versus Machine and Quijote Coffee from Hamburg. For any kind of nerdy discussion check the Home Barista Forum.

ABOUT

For more than 20 years, I have been working at the ever-changing interface between technological progress and the resulting new business models. While my knowledge covers all relevant areas of the digital value chain, the current focus is especially on data-driven business models, both from a technical and an economic perspective. A short Interview with Germany’s CDO Insight Magazine can be be found here. You can also connect on XING oder LinkedIn.

FAVE RAVES

Like many others, I have been collecting records for years. A lot of energy has gone into it, but on the other hand, there are few things that make you as happy as music. I’ve listed a few favourites below, but there are millions more. There are also some tips regarding technologies and writers. You may also check out my extensive Playlist on Spotify called Gerrits Jukebox.
