A conversation with Jeanette from the marketing team at Computec Media around her two decade long career with us.

I recently traveled to Fürth to visit our portfolio company, Computec Media for work and caught up with our Marketing Manager, Jeanette Haag. When I showed up in the office on a typically hot and scorching afternoon, the first thing I noticed was the abundance of life size figures from some of the most famous gaming franchises in history. In this place, science fiction ruled the world.

Computec Media has been a major player in the gaming and IT publishing space around the DACH area for more than 30 years now and Jeanette has been there for more than half of that time. As we grabbed a cup of coffee, I couldn't help but ask her a few questions regarding her work. Here goes the brief excerpt:

How long have you worked here?

I have been with Computec for incredible 21 years :)

In your role as Marketing Manager, what does your typical day look like?

Every day is different. My job is to manage marketing activities such as maintaining our corporate identity and everything related to it, planning product and subscription ads, sending out press releases or organizing our gamescom exhibit. Priorities change from month to month, depending on which projects are most important at the moment. For example, I was recently introduced to the wonderful world of ad campaign management by our sales team!

What do you enjoy most about working for Computec?

The most I enjoy about working here is the people around me and the fact that this company has constantly been evolving for decades!

What do you find most challenging and most rewarding about your role?

The challenge itself is rewarding enough because I learn something new every day.

How do you stay focused and go beyond on a regular basis?

I usually start my day with Yoga or running early in the morning which helps set up for my mindset for the day. Throughout the rest of the day, some nice coffee, delicious sweets and my wonderful colleagues make sure that I'm on on my toes.

Outside of life at Computec, what are the things that take up most of your time?

My life companion. My family. My cats.

I love Spending as much time as possible in the mountains. From hiking in summer, to snowboarding in winter, I am for it all!

Also, I like knitting socks. I find it to be very calming :)
