Christian is one of the most polished sales and marketing professionals I had the pleasure to work with in my career. He is detailed, focused and a good people manager. I would recommend him highly to any organization in need of an experienced executive able to take it to the next level of success.
Wir arbeiten seit vier Jahren mit Christian Sommerhoff zusammen und können seine Kompetenz in den Bereichen Vertrieb und Marketing uneingeschränkt weiterempfehlen.
Christian is a true sales management professional who builds strong teams, delivers his business, and manages his customers well both in good times and when things are tough. He has excellent experience managing international businesses and, in the case of SanDisk, was a strong representative for the company to our customers and a great advocate for his customers back to corporate headquarters.
Christian and I have collaborated on many sales projects in the past. His drive, work ethic and attention to detail drove many of the successes that GN Netcom was responsible for. I would welcome the opportunity to work with him again in the future in any capacity. He is one of the hardest working people I have had the pleasure of working with over the years.
I had the pleasure of working with Christian in my role as Senior Counsel for EMEA Legal matters at SanDisk. Christian is an experienced sales manager with deep knowledge of the EMEA commercial business channel for technology products. He is extremely good at coordinating with other functions of the business in order to better achieve corporate goals. Very dedicated and well organized team leader, Christian has excellent people skills that make him a great person to work with.

He has a profound practical experience in all aspects of sales and marketing , cultural experience in EMEA incl. East Europe, US and Latin America. He has been working in different industries and is flexible and fast in his adaptation to new challenges.
I had the opportunity to work for Christian during his transition from GN Netcom’s European operations to the Americas. This was a great time to see him in action during what must have been a tremendous challenge – helping his family adapt along with professional requirements. Christian has a terrific mind for seeing the „global“ picture in an organization and with quickly understanding how operations interrelate. He is skilled at identifying the problem, creating a solution, and working hard gain management consensus to move forward and improve. I enjoyed my time with Christian and appreciate the new perspective he brought to me on work and family, and would not hesitate to recommend him for a position with any company.
Christian is a charismatic and savvy executive whom I had the pleasure of working with. He is very astute with a sharp business acumen and a dedication to building mutually beneficial, long term relationships.
