Patrick Pongratz
Director Commercial & Public Sales

As Director Commercial & Public Sales within the DACH-region, Patrick is responsible for all sales verticals except Banking & Insurance and part of the German management board at SAS.

Having a police officer as father and an employee of the German Armed Forces as mother, it is not surprising that he has a close affinity with public administration issues in the digital age. In his career he has been working for the government sector for more than 20 years so far. His other great passion is Retail & CPG in general and the subject area of customer intelligence in particular. Not only did he focus on Retail & Distribution during his studies in economics, but he also gained his first professional experience in category management at the globally operating confectionery and pet food manufacturer Mars, Inc. Other stations on his career path so far have been T-Systems, European IT Consultancy and Hitachi Vantara.

Patrick is an ideal sparring partner for adapting ideas to business models and is widely respected as an evangelist for all topics related to data-driven value creation. He speaks regularly on topics such as network analysis, fraud detection and homeland security issues.
