Uwe Härtel to head Entersekt’s Central European operation
Munich office to grow as Entersekt prioritizes DACH region
13/09/2018 — MUNICH — (BUSINESS WIRE)
Härtel has deep knowledge of the market for authentification systems and extensive sales experience in the digital security space. He comes to Entersekt from Gemalto, which he joined in 2006. He most recently served as that company’s VP sales for Central and Eastern Europe, and his focus areas included several hot-button market drivers, including PSD2-compliant strong authentication, identity verification, and the security of mobile payments. He succeeds Jonathan Knoll, who left Entersekt to take up an entrepreneurial challenge.
“In Uwe Härtel, we are delighted to have won a very competent and experienced expert in the sector,” said Schalk Nolte, Entersekt’s CEO. “We are convinced that he will boost Entersekt’s growth significantly with his expertise in the region.”
Explaining his decision to join Entersekt, Härtel said: “Digitalization is bringing lasting change to the entire banking sector. Consumers demand well-designed, user-friendly experiences, particularly on mobile devices. At the same time, the security of these channels must be reinforced continually as hacker attacks grow in sophistication. Entersekt offers precisely the right solutions to these concerns: they are state-of-the-art both in terms of the security they offer and their ease of use. I am greatly looking forward to taking the development of this highly innovative company further.”
Entersekt intends to expand its presence considerably in the broad German-speaking market over the coming months and is hiring new staff for its team in Munich in particular.
Entersekt is an innovator of mobile-first fintech solutions. Financial services providers and other enterprises rely on its patented mobile identity system to provide both security and the best in convenient new digital experiences to their customers, irrespective of the service channel. Whether pursuing compliance through strong authentication and state-of-the-art app security or looking to meet consumer demand for on-the-go information sharing and payment capabilities, Entersekt’s clients always enjoy a competitive advantage.
