Michael Manten becomes Openclaims' Country Manager Germany!

Earlier Openclaims, the Dutch SaaS platform for claims and body repair management, announced that it will open an office in Cologne, Germany, as of 1 April 2022. The activities there will be led by Michael Manten (52). Michael has spent the last 20 years with the RLE INTERNATIONAL Group, a leading provider of development, technology and consultancy services to the international mobility and services industry.

Manten post

Evert-Jan Stagge, CCO Openclaims, about the expansion and appointment of Michael: "The decision to expand into Germany is partly the result of discussions we have had with international clients who are active in the German market. They are currently facing challenges that we in the Netherlands and Scandinavia have been facing for some time. We also see new trends such as a changing digital landscape, the continuously changing automotive market and strongly increasing consumer needs. Michael's knowledge of the German automotive market plus the fact that he knows that technology can make a difference made him the most suitable person for us."

Manten began his career at ARXES Information Design AG. In 2001, he made the move to RLE INTERNATIONAL Group. At RLE, Manten was responsible for the business development of the Business Services & Consulting division in Europe. His last position at RLE was Head of Sales - Region West. In this position, he was ultimately responsible for marketing and consultancy.

"I am aware that Openclaims is entering a highly competitive market. However, I am convinced that because of our distinctive approach we can still make a difference. The Openclaims platform offers more than the usual claim settlement portals. The platform consists of modules that can be used separately but also combined to create end-to-end solutions. The colleagues I have met are young and energetic and, in my opinion, a good reflection of Openclaims as an organisation. They create the platform with the latest insights and solutions": says Manten.
