Mathias comes from a background in advertising in the music industry. After venturing into musical instrument wholesale he moved to the advertising side of things in the late 90s.
His first contact with TYPO3 happened in 2001 when he became part of netfielders and was introduced closely to the TYPO3 community. After being an active member in the TYPO3 Association he took some time off community work to come back in 2013 by raising funds for the 6.2 release and later being sponsored as a full-time product owner in late 2014.
In 2016 Mathias got chosen to become CEO of the TYPO3 GmbH in order to further foster the development and visibility of TYPO3 worldwide.
In his few hours off TYPO3 a week he tries to master the guitar while living with his wife and dog in Düsseldorf, Germany.
We spent the last months designing the new Partner Program for the TYPO3 ecosystem.
Our goal was to build a framework that allows everyone who is building solutions with TYPO3 to shine in their respective fields, rather than just a simple buy-in with a membership.
