Axel Hinze joins Orange Business as new Managing Director to lead Germany, Austria and Eastern Europe

I am happy to welcome Axel Hinze to Orange Business as Managing Director of Germany, Austria and Eastern Europe (GEA). He will take on the business responsibility for these regions while continuing to establish Orange Business as a trusted digital transformation partner for our clients in all industries.

Axel brings a wealth of management experience in the ICT industry, both across Germany and internationally, with a strong focus on sales strategy and transformation, marketing, business management and enterprise customer development. Previously he worked for BT Global Services in Germany and Switzerland, CA-Computer Associates and Peoplesoft (Oracle), and he has a proven track record as a visionary Sales & Marketing executive and an integrative people manager.

"I'm very excited to join Orange Business and to take over the management of the GEA region. This region represents one of the largest growth opportunities in the industry, as many of the most advanced multinational companies in the world are located here. I am really looking forward to working together with the teams to tackle this challenge."
