Auf Wiedersehen Mathias Kuehne of CYT

Mathias KuehneIt’s a fresh start for the guys at Berlin headquartered Create Your Template this week, after many years at the company Mathias Kuehne has left the day to day business to focus on new businesses and projects.

Anyone that’s attended ChannelAdvisor’s UK Catalyst conferences over the years will almost certainly remember Mathias (on the stand with the Haribo sweets). A genuinely friendly nice guy he led Create Your Template from what was an eBay design company specialising in ChannelAdvisor design solutions 6 years ago, to what is now one of Europe’s most specialised full service ecommerce consulting agencies. Create Your Template also successfully launched WIDshop, a more widely available eBay design solution.

Today Create Your Template helps more than hundred companies to successfully manage multichannel commerce ranging from small businesses up to global brands. They have successfully opened offices or founded partnerships in Germany, England, France and Austria.

Mathias said “It has been very exciting and challenging and I leave with mixed emotions, I am sad to leave the company I saw growing from almost day one, but I am excited with new opportunities”. Expect to hear from him again though as he intends to remain in the online industry and we look forward to hearing about his new projects.

Mathias will remain a partner in Create Your Template and act as consultant and will oversee his current active projects until they successfully go live. For the future CEO Patrick Ludewig will steer the company along with two new employees – Mrs. Anja Fricke (Team assistant Project Management), and Mr. Jan Kuck (Marketing/Communication).
