2016-11-02 – On October 24, we celebrated the 10-year anniversary of our parent company IntelliNet. It was a familial event with very valued guests. Many of our clients who were with us right from the start honored us with their presence, but also new business partners with whom business relations have developed into personal ones in a short time. Being an owner-managed company, all employees of IntelliNet as well as Econ work first and foremost from person to person – that’s what our name, and those of our managing directors, stands for.
With our anniversary, we want to celebrate this important relationship with our clients. We had planned for a spectacular sunset over the silhouette of Cologne, but it remained hidden behind a wall of fog on this autumn day. Nevertheless, the joyful atmosphere that night was not disturbed. Guests with more staying power were able to enjoy the view of the colorful Cologne night later in the evening.
The very personal opening remarks by IntelliNet managing directors Arne Westphal and Heinz-Peter Olbrück were followed by three interesting expert contributions. Bankingclub manager Thorsten Hahn told the “Tale of the future of the bank”. Tobias Ehret, Head of Digital Experience & Innovation Management (CDO) of Deutsche Postbank AG, presented the E-Finance case study “Postbank – yesterday, today and tomorrow… but always more than a bank”. Finally, lawyer and speaker Carsten Grüttner made the audience open their minds with his motivational speech “Leaving the comfort zone: around the world on a bike” and segued into a relaxed and casual networking evening. The musical entertainment was provided by the band Foss Doll with their fresh and jazzy sound.
We want to thank all our guests and speakers for coming. We’re looking forward to the next ten years of outstanding cooperation!
