Head Of Marketing

Abracar GmbH.

As a 100% subsidiary of Allianz Group aims on selling cars for the best price with no effort for the customer: car selling re-thought. I’ve been with the project from idea to market proof to the phase of scalability – gaining valuable experiences, but also adding significant value thanks to my own start-up background.

As the Head of Marketing my team and I were able to build a big marketing setup that includes all channels: TV, search marketing (Bing and Google Ads), display, social marketing (Instagram, Facebook), affiliates marketing, newsletters, print.

2017

Today we have more than 500.000 users on our social networks. Our aim is to connect people with similar interests, encouraging them to participate in events and trips for singles.

As Chief of Technology and Marketing I was in charge of developing the product and at the same time of all aspects of performance marketing, while building and leading a (remote) team of programmers and collaborators.

Matias a well-rounded and knowledgeable professional. He did an excellent job during his time supporting us at Brains and Hearts for our client Zeiss and Atlas Copco. By applying lean start-up techniques and implementing a results-driven performance marketing approach he increased traffic and growth to new levels. As a person, I found him to be creative, motivated, and able to pick up the latest trends very quickly. He is a great asset to any marketing team. If you ever wondered what a Growth Marketer is or does, he embodies those traits and applies them to his work every day. he is the real deal.

Brian Porter CTO at Carfax Europe

I really enjoyed working with Matias in the past on a few projects. He has a deep understanding of online marketing, an entrepreneurial perspective, and an analytical but growth-hacking approach to finding the right changes to make in order to increase performance. Due to his deep technical skills he is also able to interface and interact with the techies like me in order to communicate needed changes, as well as to test and approve them afterwards. I would be glad to work with him again in the future!
