Link11 Expands Further and Appoints Rolf Gierhard as Vice President Marketing

Link11, one of the leading IT security providers in Europe fighting cyber-attacks on the basis of a machine learning process forming the subject of a patent application, is preparing for further international expansion and strengthening its management team with the appointment of Rolf Gierhard as Vice President Marketing.

Link11 today announced the appointment of Rolf Gierhard for the newly created position of Vice President Marketing. His role involves managing and driving forward all global marketing activities for the rapidly growing company. He will work in the Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) region and, in the medium term, in the areas of Asia-Pacific (APAC) and America (The Americas).

In the second quarter of 2018, Link11 announced both its expansion to Great Britain and the extension of the Link11 Cloud Security Platform in the Asia-Pacific region. Link11 will continue its course of international growth and expansion in the coming months. Gierhard, who brings more than 20 years experience in marketing strategy, digital marketing and the management of international organisational units with a focus on B2B marketing to Link11, will extend the brand’s reach and the targeted addressing of customers. The market launches planned in Scandinavia and the Benelux in 2018 will also fall under Gierhard’s control.

Managing Director Marc Wilczek: “We are delighted to have Rolf Gierhard join Link11. With his top-class market knowledge and his extensive marketing expertise, he will make a considerable contribution to tapping into new markets and drive our further growth and expansion in Europe and the world.”

Prior to joining the German IT security provider, Gierhard was in charge of the international marketing organisation of ePages, a leading provider throughout the world of e-commerce software in the cloud, with full responsibility for turnover and personnel. Before that, Gierhard worked as head of marketing and product management at various companies in the tourism IT and online media sector.

Gierhard, new Vice President Marketing, says: “There can be no better time to start at Link11. The Link11 Security Cloud has established itself as a market leader. With innovative offers in the area of 360-degree IT security, we will tap into new markets and customer segments on a global level.” I am very much looking forward to working in a team that has steered Link11 to a top position in Europe over the last two years.”
