Exasol lands in Zurich as it gears up for accelerated growth

Exasol underpins its rapid growth by establishing a subsidiary in the Swiss market


Exasol’s existing partner network will play a key role in fueling the expansion in the region

Nuremberg, October 15, 2020 – Exasol, the high-performance analytics database, today announced the opening of a brand new office in Zurich, Switzerland. Building on bases in Germany, the UK, and the USA, the new office and subsidiary will enable Exasol to further expand its presence in the booming Swiss market along with supporting wider European expansion.

Exasol already has a solid customer base in Switzerland, including names such as Accarda, Manor, and Helsana as well as a healthy partner network. The new office, in the heart of Zurich, will serve as a local base to bring Exasol closer to both and to enable further growth in the region.

“We have been relying on the powerful Exasol database for five years now and we are very satisfied. We have been able to speed up response times of our analytics many times over. Our retail partners benefit from this, because of the large volume of POS transactions generated daily in the retail industry. Without Exasol, it would not be possible to manage such volumes,” says Stefan Schurgast, Head of IT at Accarda. “Exasol has provided excellent support from Germany, and we welcome the fact that we will have a local team in Switzerland.”

“We have a long history of successful partnership with Exasol. As an Elite partner, we have excellent Exasol expertise and have been able to successfully support many customers with their installations and migration projects already,” said Klaus Blaschek, Managing Director at b.telligent. “We are very pleased that Exasol is now expanding its presence in Switzerland so that together we can continue to offer Swiss customers a first-class product and our excellent expertise on site.”

Patrik Okouo joins Exasol as Sales Manager, Switzerland, to spearhead the charge in the Swiss market. Patrik Okouo brings over 20 years of experience to support Exasol with its ambitious plans for growth and will be establishing a team to support the local presence.

“The Swiss market presents a great opportunity for Exasol. We already have several customers in Switzerland, and we want to build even closer relationships with them by establishing a regional office,” said Gunther Schweer, Head of Sales, DACH. “We are excited about the potential for growth in this market.” For more information about the Zurich office, please visit: https://www.exasol.com/en/get-in-touch/
