What can I offer you? In short: The combination of detailed travel industry knowledge in conjunction with hands-on, no-nonsense IT know-how. In my past business missions I have mainly translated the needs of travel industry companies into relevant IT requirements and have worked on IT solutions which support the travel industry necessities.
I am a trained travel agent and have worked in a range of different departments as a front-line agent (leisure, commercial services/travel management, tour operations).
From front-line sales I moved on to agency management and IT positions in a large German travel agency franchise system, the FIRST, group of companies, where I ploughed the fields of IT and organisational analysis of new franchisees. I also worked in a number of international committees (e.g. IT & hotel business).
The next step was to take the position of International Sales Manager at a leading German software company, Partners Software, where I was responsible for the development of the international business (including marketing and getting programmes and staff focussed on international customers).
In autumn 2005 I set up my own consultancy business, PENDORIC, in order to be more flexible with helping my customers achieve their goals, especially as a lot of my work in software sales involved a good deal of consulting and keeping a broad view of the customers business, not merely the software side.
PENDORIC offers consultancy work and also acts as commercial agent for software companies, both from Germany (wishing to sell internationally) and abroad (wishing to do business in Germany ).
I am also the managing partner of two travel agencies in Germany , in which I am responsible for IT (you guessed it :-), business development and accounting. In this role I also sit in the IT committee of TUI ReiseCenter/TUI Leisure Travel.
PENDORIC = Travel Industry know-how + Information Technology know-how .
