Rainer Gimbel began working for the former Degussa in Frankfurt/Main (Germany) in 1995. For a long time, he was involved with SAP in the purchase-to-pay process environment. Since 2012, he assumed responsibility for Evonik`s Enterprise Social Network. As a Digital Strategist he works for Team Evonik Digital, Evonik´s digital daughter. One of his biggest challenges is the introduction of open, transparent collaboration methods and the associated cultural change.
