In September 2009
I began studying and therefore was not able to be work full time for the webshop. That is why I recruited my first employees Jan and a sometime later Martin to deal with customer service and sales. There was still a lot for me to do though, which I had to make up for after the lectures. However, due to the increasing amount of orders I was not able to finish the semester. I studied in Leipzig until 2012
and then decided to dedicate myself fully to the online shop. As I personally know from experience how hard it is to manage academic studies and a job, I am now supporting other students with scholarships
a phase began for creoven that we are still working on today: Internationalisation and Professionalisation
. I recruited two new employees as product manager and international sales management. Together we are stengthening our domestic as well as cross-country online presence. By now, creoven is available throughout Europe and Australia! We are constantly adding new countries, France for example was added not too long ago. I have quite a few plans for the future, one of them would be to expand our range step by step with complete solutions and ventilation systems.
As most of the orders are made directly on the creoven.eu website (only about one third can be alloted to online marketplaces), we started concentrating on improving the search function for customers in 2016
The entire experience of the purchase shall become better, easier and faster. To achieve this we generate comprehensive guides
, detailed product pictures
, and are even planning a virtual sales advisor.
An honest presentation of the goods and responsible manufacturers are very important to me personally. Read more about this in our creoven mission statement
I will try my best to have you leave this shop with a satisfying experience and hopefully come back!
Best wishes from beautiful Altenburg,
Tobias Krist and the entire creoven-team
