awareness of what is happening in Product Management in many countries.
Gerald works at Leanovate as a consultant, and has defined his role as being the evangelist for good product management in Berlin. At any given point in my career, I was more or less responsible for delivering a product, and I was always fascinated by
the level of complexity it takes to create simplicity in a product.

Coming from a technical background got into Product Management a few years ago when I started being the product owner for AdsWizz’s Audio AdServer. Currently I am taking care of the campaign management tool for coupons and weekly circulars as well as
the analytics dashboard at KaufDa / Retale. PMF looks like the right place to learn from the mistakes of other Product Managers, share knowledge and improve oneself along the way.

I am supporting PMF 2015 as an Ambassador because whether through methodology or technology, product management is an area that has been constantly evolving over the last 10+ years. The Product Management Festival exposes attendees to global experts to
hear about these latest best-of-breed developments and be able to discuss with the greater Product community.

Andreas is product owner at American Express where he is building the next generation digital payment solutions. Before that he was working on the mobile payment platform Softcard which was acquired by Google in February 2015. The role and importance
of product management is often misunderstood and thus not practiced or fully used to a business’ advantage. As the position continues to evolve, there is a need for exchange and learning from product managers in different fields. I believe that
forums like the Product Management Festival foster the exchange within the product community as well as provide an excellent opportunity to learn from global product leaders.

Tim is Vice Dean and Head of Research at the new School of Information Technology at the Lucerne University of Applied Sciences and Arts. As former Product Manager Financing at Finnova and Co-Author of the Platform agileproductmanagement.ch he remain
strongly attached to Product Management. Product Management has developed over the last years into a discipline which is essential for most IT companies. Especially with agile development the skillset of a Product Manager is required in any team.

In 2009 I founded Prodman to develop product management competencies of high tech companies in Finland. By that time there were already great US based companies doing the same but pretty much nothing happening in Europe. I am really happy that we now
have Product Management Festival raising the awareness of product management and making it possible for product people to connect and learn from the best on the field.
