London, 13th August 2014 – Mindjet, the world's leader in SaaS solutions for enterprise innovation management, today appoints Jörg Steiss as Regional VP D/A/CH, Eastern Europe & Nordics. Steiss has assumed responsibility for the field organisation in the Nordic region in addition to his current role as Mindjet Regional VP D/A/CH & Eastern Europe. His new tasks include all customer-facing roles, ranging from sales and pre-sales, technical services and marketing, to roles involving the partner network, for the Nordic markets.
Steiss has been a Mindjet employee for almost 13 years during which he has built a reputation for identifying customer needs and possessing an outstanding knowledge of the IT market. In a prior role as Director of Strategic Business Development EMEA at Mindjet, Steiss has already previously been jointly responsible for the development of the partner network, as well as a number of sales, pre-sales and consultancy activities in Northern Europe.
In his new position, Steiss will ensure the consistent and sustainable growth of the company in the Nordic region as well as the Baltic states, including Denmark, Finland, Norway, Sweden, Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania.

Steiss’s appointment comes shortly after the opening of a new Mindjet office in Stockholm, Sweden, reinforcing the company’s dedication to the Nordic market.
"In recent years, we have been working very hard on developing our customer partnerships, with my focus being on German-speaking countries in particular to-date. This has prompted encouraging growth for Mindjet which we are hoping to translate to other markets as well", explains Jörg Steiss. "We are now better represented in the Nordics, following the recent opening of a new office which we believe will allow closer communication with our customers and partners in the region".
Together with Mindjet partners, Steiss is hoping to intensify customer care in the Nordic region, whilst expanding the number of regular customers using Mindjet platforms.
