Managing Director Daniela Stofer

“Merkle offers unique digital customer experiences that make the difference. I look forward to establishing our brand in Germany as the leading digital agency for CXM in a stable and sustainable way. Today more than ever, the key to innovation is diversity. I have put diversity as my top priority for Merkle Germany, which will guide us towards a steady company growth.

The digital transformation can only be shaped together. That is why diversity plays a decisive role at Merkle. Daniela Stofer is particularly determined about promoting women in technology and management positions. At Merkle, however, diversity is more than just gender equality: harnessing the power of the collective and living diversity through their employees from the top down is the key to economic success.
