Founder & CEO
Nathanael is a born entrepreneur and father of two – as a child he discovered his business acumen and over time he identified a value-oriented corporate management as the best solution. He is able to get the best out of his staff and relies on positive reinforcement and humor.
Founder & CEO
This 47-year-old father recognized and successfully exploited his entrepreneurial skills shortly after graduation. After starting several online shops, in 2003 he focused on liquid cooling at alphacool and Aquatuning. If he’s not working, he’s doing sports – as a member of the national Para-Cycling Team he has successfully won the 2015 EuroCup and 2017 WorldCup. Andreas will not easily give in to obstacles.
