Five questions for… Manuel

Who are the people behind trbo? In our blog series our employees introduce themselves – and answer five questions about themselves and their work. Today with our Account Manager Manuel Ries. 

1. How did you hear about trbo and when did you start working?

I have always been interested in the possibilities on the web. By chance, I then came across the trbo homepage and was quickly convinced by the company’s services and concept as an onsite personalization platform. I then started working for trbo in September 2019.

2. What is your job at trbo?

As an account manager, I am responsible for supporting both existing customers and new customers.

5. What did you want to be when you grew up?

Growing up I always wanted to be a notary. I thought that, for example, notarizations and the supervision of real estate purchase contracts would be quite interesting. But I quickly realized that in day-to-day business, that wasn’t for me at all.
