I am happy to take on this challenge and set up RenderThat with a great team for the future. With digital solutions, we want to establish the financial function as an integrated and advisory area for the entire organization — a success factor for sustainable growth. ”

About RenderThat

RenderThat started as a digital agency in Aachen in 2012 and is now on its way to becoming an international SaaS company. The agency's core business is visualizations using CGI, in particular “digital twins.” The RenderThat specialists develop digital images of physical products. Once digitized, there are various options for product presentation, which in some cases massively reduce marketing efforts and costs. With the digital twin as a basis, RenderThat offers its customers flexible content options in the areas of automation, virtual reality, augmented reality, digital trade fairs, product configurators, and product images and videos. The next major development step is the RenderThat Hub — a platform that allows customers to manage and scale their content more easily and conveniently collaborate from anywhere in the world via interfaces.

RenderThat's customers include Beyerdynamic, Duravit, Schlaraffia, Hilding Anders, Bosch Siemens Household Appliances and BMW. At its locations in Hamburg, Berlin, Cologne, Munich and recently New York City, the company employs over 130 people from over 30 countries.
