Sr. Director, Global Human Resources
Reinhard Guggenberger views HR as a vocation, not as a job. Starting his career as headhunter in one of the largest, international recruiting companies he moved on to become a compensation and benefits expert in Austria´s large set telecommunication company. He quickly took over as Head of Training & Development and became Deputy HR Manager. He moved on to become Group HR Director for an automotive supplier of textiles and interiors, where he was able to reorganize and modernize the HR department and HR strategy. Reinhard was involved in establishing new factories across Eastern Europe and was responsible for global staffing, management development, and high potential programs. In 2008 Reinhard joined update Software AG as VP of HR and helped the company grow from 140 people to over 340, while establishing state of the art HR programs. After update Software was acquired by Aurea Software, he was responsible for an international transformation process and continued to work for Aurea for more than 2 years. Before joining FalconStor, he founded his own consulting agency, supporting European companies to establish new work models and processes. Reinhard is based in Vienna, Austria and has a master’s degree in Sociology from the University of Vienna. He’s a great example of FalconStor’s strong belief that the right people for the job don´t necessarily need to live in cities where we have offices.
