Cologne, 03.01.2023. As of January 1st, Katja Albrecht has taken over the position of Chief Growth Officer at AmaliTech. In her position, she is responsible for growth and will support AmaliTech’s customers in their digital transformation.
Founded in 2019, the social business AmaliTech from Cologne, Germany, already counts 250 employees and is growing steadily. The company’s mission consists of creating many high-quality long-term jobs and career prospects in Africa in the IT sector and enabling European companies to achieve digitalization and transformation endeavors by providing access to talent. To this end, AmaliTech has established sites in Ghana and Rwanda where digital experts deliver projects for international companies.
“I am excited to be part of this forward-looking vision and to effectively support companies in their digital transformation through this great opportunity to collaborate with African digital talent,” explains Katja Albrecht.
In her many years as a consultant, Katja Albrecht has advised clients on complex challenges in the dimensions of user, brand, and organization. She has worked for consultancies of various kinds: Agencies, IT service providers, and consultancies. These environments were creatively, internationally, and/or digitally driven. In the past 12 years, she has acted exclusively for digital service providers, in her last positions as Managing Director for ecx.io / IBM IX and TWT Interactive.
