Born in Upper Austria, he has been with SPAR Austria since 2007. The electrical engineer would never have thought that he would end up in IT - before SPAR, Günther worked in the field of engine injection pumps. His interest in SPAR and the sales processes behind the shelves only awoke with his specialization in telecommunications technology. "That was my entry into the world of IT and retail. Originally, I didn't want to stay longer than two years," says Günther. Since joining the company, he has held various positions in application management - as team leader of the Store Retail team, as Domain Architect and, since 2021, as Enterprise Architect for the Sales division. "I learned everything about the retail business at SPAR ICS."
Congratulations on the award, Günther!

Born in Upper Austria, he has been working for SPAR Austria since 2003.

Initially, Andreas was responsible for system integration and networks, but after a few years he shifted his focus to databases and SAP systems and has been Senior Product Lead for SAP Basis since 2023.
Congratulations on the award, Andreas!
