One thing you should definitely know about Niklas Gossel, our Head of Enterprise Sales? He’s always loved maps. So much so, he was able to turn his personal passion into his profession. It was inevitable that he’d land at Targomo at some point.
A native of Hamburg, Niklas studied International Economics & Development at Universität Bayreuth before starting his career in global trade. Three years ago, Niklas pivoted to tech. “Previously I worked in a very traditional, impressive business segment. When I wanted a change, I chose to make a complete 180 and give my career a turn by joining a promising, fast-moving startup,” explains Niklas.
That startup was Targomo, where Niklas started as Key Account Manager and was one of our first non-tech employees. He now sits within Sales & Business Development organization, tasked with selling our complex, novel platform products and nurturing new commercial client opportunities. His successful work with some of Targomo’s largest clients has led to his recent appointment as Head of Enterprise Sales.
“I have always had a strong affinity for innovative products and solutions, much like the interactive maps that enable us to foster the power of geo-referenced data in a fascinating way,” says Niklas. “At Targomo, we are able to share valuable business insights that answer complex questions related to location, reachability and mobility.”
“In my current role, I have the chance to gain international experience and diversify my business knowledge,” adds Niklas. “I am driven by developing new markets and hunting for new business opportunities. Building strong and long-lasting relationships with our global partners is my professional passion. Targomo’s technology is bringing location intelligence to the next level—I’m thrilled to be a part of it!”
As one of our key sales personnel, Niklas is a well-known face of Targomo for many touchpoints, from events and pitches to on-site visits and personal demos. When he’s off the maps and out on the road, you can find Niklas searching for an amazing adventure in Mexico, or training for an upcoming triathlon.
