GP Strategies Introduces New Head of Sales DACH

Since 2018 GP Strategies SuccessFactors Practice has been building a consulting team in the DACH region focusing on SuccessFactors implementation and support services.

GP Strategies is happy to welcome Falko Kranz as the new Sales Director for the DACH region starting April 1st, 2022. He joins from Deloitte where he previously was Director in the Human Capital practice where he was responsible for the Market Offering SAP SuccessFactors in Germany.

Falko has 20+ years of experience in the HR domain working as Talent Acquisition Manager, HR Business Partner, and later as Head of HR. Subsequently, he worked as a management consultant focusing on process and organizational design before joining SuccessFactors in 2010. At SuccessFactors, he supported European customers in the selection and assessment of the technical solution and how this will support their HR operations. In 2016 he joined Deloitte to grow the SuccessFactors practice and support customers implementing SAP SuccessFactors.

At GP Strategies Falko will focus on serving the existing customers and enlarging the customer community in the German-speaking region. Falko’s driving force is to make sure that customers implement great HR processes based on SuccessFactors technology. Leveraging his background in HR, technology, and consulting will help our customers to get the best out of their SuccessFactors projects.

Falko Kranz, the new Sales Director DACH says the following:

 I feel honored to join the very experienced SAP SuccessFactors team of GP Strategies in the role of Sales Director for the DACH region. In this role, I want to make sure that the current live customer receives great service from the support organization and – of course – that the customer community grows so that more companies benefit from the vast experience this organization holds. With my +20 years in HR and +12 years in SAP SuccessFactors, I find an environment where I can still learn from many talented colleagues. My priority is to bring this expertise to our customers and offer the right services for the challenges ahead.

Many organizations right now create a roadmap for how to embrace the cloud architecture of SAP. Next to the constant flow of innovation within SuccessFactors across the different modules, new products are shipped to the market like WorkZone or Qualtrics. The offerings for payroll, time management, and analytics are evolving and allow a tailored approach to adopting the new technologies. To consult organizations on how to make the best use of the technology and – this is specifically important to me – how to support HR and the entire organization during this transformation will be the major and most rewarding part of my role.

We are pleased to welcome Falko to our team, and we are looking forward to continuing our growth journey in the DACH region.
