Christian Diener
Vice President,Sales

Most memorable Elauwit experience:

I realized I was part of a special team one afternoon in my first month, when an asset manager reached out to the consultant they had used to engage with us during an upgrade, due to a property manager escalation regarding Internet services in the office. Upon presentment to our Operations team, we had boots on the ground within hours attacking issues that may or may not have included Elauwit, turning a situation where the customer felt as if “in peril” into a very positive experience.

Favorite movie or TV show:

The Big Lebowski

Favorite book:

Anything written by Ian McEwan

Most interesting place visited:

Granada, Spain

Most people don't know:

I can hold my own at table tennis
