Moritz Philip Recke
I am a passionate and empathetic engineer at heart with strong experience in product design, business development and project management, extensive leadership experience and keen ability to sense white space.
Engineer. Essentialist. Explorer.
Until recently, I was managing director and responsible executive for the digital development within the GANSKE MEDIA GROUP as well as personal advisor to S. Ganske. Before, I was responsible for Controlling Systems & Information in the international agency network SCHOLZ & FRIENDS and reported directly to the corporate CFO.
In my leadership roles, I built up teams from 5 to 120+ and took full responsibility for product management, development and IT teams. Also, I worked on international partnerships and M&A projects in Europe, the U.S., Israel and India. In addition, I have 10+ years experience as an iOS developer, published 100+ apps, received multiple mobile app design awards, was featured on international media outlets such as Mashable, Macworld and ranked among top 100 apps worldwide.
After leading large IT and executive change management projects within the advertising and publishing industry as well as several years of building up digital companies and cross media products, I now focus on software engineering as a creative process and group collaboration.
Additionally, I conduct scientific research on entrepreneurial ecosystems and sociotechnical imaginaries, their underlying narrative structures and relevance within public policy discourse. As an Educator, I facilitate the formative education of students at the Apple Developer Academy in Naples (Italy) based on the Challenge Based Learning methodology framework.
