A new teammate - Roman Schweiger joins FireStart as Vice President Operations
Passion for using structured processes, market-leading applications, and transparent KPIs to build and maintain long-term customer and partner relationships is exactly what we look for at FireStart. Enter Roman Schweiger, our Vice President Operations since May 2020. Here at FireStart we have been committed to first-class relationships with our customers and partners for over 10 years.
Roman studied Business Administration at the Vienna University of Economics and Business Administration, with specializations in Strategic Management and Management Control as well as Entrepreneurship and Innovation. After completing his Master’s degree, the wine lover from Burgenland spent a year in the USA to gain further international experience after his semester abroad in Florida. At Arvato Systems North America in New York, Roman learned what is important in project management. Practical knowledge that he then applied in Berlin at the banking start-up N26 as Business Development and Operations Manager, where his responsibilities encompassed projects to optimize profitability.
After N26, his career path led him to HUMANOO, a platform for digital workplace health promotion for workers and the insured. As CFO and Head of Strategic Projects, Roman was responsible for a wide range of projects, including investor relations and the development and management of both the Finance and Business Intelligence Departments. At Vivy, an app that provides its users with a complete overview of their medical data and documents, Roman led the cross-functional team as Product Manager. Here he was able to combine his previously learned skills with technical know-how – a combination that makes him the perfect Vice President Operations at FireStart.
A Passion for Sport and New Challenges
Roman is a great addition to the FireStart team not just because of his professional experience and winemaker connections in Burgenland, but also because of his enthusiasm. If you fly to Paris for the French Open finals just to be there in case an Austrian wins the Grand Slam, there is nothing you won’t do for customers and partners. In addition to Customer and Partner Relations, Roman is also in charge of Financial Planning and Operations, HR Operations, KPI Management and Monitoring, Community Management and numerous other interesting tasks at FireStart.
Welcome to the team, Roman! We’re happy to have you!
