Retarus enhances Swiss market presence

Sales organization expands into Switzerland’s French-speaking region

Munich, 15.02.2022 // To complement its global growth strategy, Retarus has expanded its presence into the Swiss market. In addition to the Swiss subsidiary’s base in Frauenfeld, the enterprise cloud provider is now also represented in Geneva. As Head of Sales Romandy, Christian Wietbrok will be responsible for regional sales and customer service.
Retarus has been building a strong customer base in Switzerland for many years. This continuous growth can largely be attributed to their offering of Swiss-made services which fulfill the most stringent requirements for data protection and security, such as those required by the GDPR and audited according to SOC 1 and SOC 2 Type II. Additionally, Retarus specifically relies on local processing. In accordance with the recommendations of the Swiss Federal Data Protection Commissioner, the data belonging to Swiss companies and their communication partners is processed in an audit-ready data center in Switzerland, run by Retarus itself and certified according to ISO 27001 and other relevant standards. Now Retarus is expanding its presence in Switzerland to provide customers in the French-speaking part of the country with the best possible service.

Closer proximity to the customer and enhanced service
