About me

A small introduction about myself

Ferry Hötzel

Entrepreneur, Product Manager, Designer from Berlin.

I’m a Product Manager with focus on mobile apps and web. Passionate about design and UX with strong attention to detail.

I’m actually from the retail field, where I worked for six years. For three of these I was a regional manager for the second largest Apple Premium Reseller in Germany. I was in charge of a number of affiliates and assumed responsibility for overall coordination. During my period there we were particularly successful in building up clients in the field of leasing, so much so that we received a commendation from Apple. In 2010 I founded my own company, Paydroid. The idea behind Paydroid was to break down the complexity of an ERP/POS system to suit the needs of a small retailer, and to make the system usable on an iPad. We also developed internationally-distributed Apple accessories such as docks and stands for the iPad and iPhone. I thus know what it means to bring a product from the concept stage to actual market positioning, and to support it even beyond that.

In my spare time, I like to hit the gym and cross off personal challenges from my bucket list.

I'm always looking for a new problem to solve, so if you've got a doozy you need a hand with, feel free to contact me.
