Christian is Chief Product Officer at IFS.

Responsible for its entire research and development (R&D) organization and product portfolio, he ensures that IFS designs and builds the industry-leading functionality that customers need, partners can proudly promote, and competitors cannot match.

With a rich history in the field, Christian knows the market, how to discover what customers desire and how to respond: from need to application, he puts service and business value at the fore.

His track record backs this up, with time spent as SAP’s Global Chief Product Officer as well as 14 years in other key positions with Microsoft and as General Manager of Enterprise ERP.

This drive translates into his life outside the office, with his passion for motor racing and sailing. Born in Denmark, he enjoys life with his family in Seattle, WA when he is not at one of our R&D sites across the world.
