Accelent Expands to Germany, Lutz Klaus Joins as Partner
Marketing Globalization Requires Digital Agility Support Across the Regions
San Rafael, CA – March 16, 2017 – We are pleased to announce that Lutz Klaus has joined the Accelent team based in Berlin. Headquartered in the San Francisco Bay Area, Accelent Consulting is expanding to strengthen our capabilities in Europe, beyond the UK and France. Our goal is to better address the digital marketing and sales strategy and execution needs of early stage growth companies that want to expand into other regions and need resources with local market expertise. And to help multinationals who need to align operations and require the knowledge and strategic support of global professionals. We are building a senior team of proven Industry leaders with international experience to help companies adapt digital technologies to drive the business and enhance the customer experience.

He shares the same vision that digital marketing and business transformation are challenging marketing leaders in every industry. Proven approaches are questioned while data-driven marketing and real-time decision-making are becoming more important. He believes a new mindset, methodologies, and advanced data skills are needed for marketing to better drive business value.

I am partnering with Accelent Consulting to secure global coverage and improve the service for my clients who now have access to local marketing and sales experts in many markets.”

He is an expert in ROI and other data-driven approaches to clarify the value of marketing in support of business results. He helps companies to generate ROI and incremental revenue by setting the right strategy, aligning the organization, selecting the right technoogy and executing online and offline marketing programs. In addition to strategic positioning and planning, he supports companies to avoid the pitfalls in deployment in both direct and indirect Go-To-Market environments. Along with driving measurable value, he builds alignment between Sales, Marketing, and IT to optimize the customer experience and improve results.
Prior to consulting, Lutz worked in the IT and Telecommunications industry since 1996 for both channel partners and vendors, being a senior leader for local and international teams at Avaya (Director of EMEA Channel Marketing and Leader of their Business Partner Program), Nortel (Head of Marketing EMEA & Asia) and Juniper Networks (Senior Director Enterprise, Commercial & Partner Marketing – EMEA).
