The leadership team at Sven Mahn IT
Owner and CEO
Sven Mahn has a broad educational background: He is a qualified concrete and reinforced concrete constructor and industrial manager and has a degree in business informatics. From 1999, he was self-employed, first as an IT manager and later in the field of Microsoft Dynamics AX implementation. In 2005 he founded Sven Mahn IT, managing the company as CEO.
I have always refused to focus on a single industry in the firm belief that companies can always learn something from other industries. My motto for life There is nothing I cannot do; anything I cannot do yet, I can learn can therefore also be transferred into projects and the company. Employees, partners and customers benefit from unconventional ideas and the connection between hobbies and professions in all respects. My vision is to implement the best Dynamics for our customers together with my team.

The ever-changing challenges in the IT industry and the positive customer response to our motivated employees motivate me to continue developing the company every day with renewed zest.

I am particularly passionate about my work in a challenging and very friendly environment. I love designing the best Dynamics for our customers together with our team. The positive feedback from our customers tells me that our employees are always giving their utmost to optimize the various solutions. Customers and employees are the priority for us – and we put that approach into practice day in and day out.

For me Life is all about problem solving and One man with a conviction is stronger than 99 people with mere interests, describe our employees’ solution-oriented, passionate and consistently customer-focused TEAM work. The pleasure of providing customers with the best solutions can be felt everywhere. That’s what motivates me to continue moving the company forward.

Head of product management
Kerstin Ishorst studied Software Engineering and became a software product manager after an intermezzo in quality management. “Enabling (tele-)communication in difficult places” and “Providing software for tons of steel (ships, aircrafts and trains)” were her main points. Since 2018 she is developing the software products team at Sven Mahn IT.
Today, the goal I set for myself is this: I build empowered teams who are able to create great products. The teaching of the agile principles plays an essential part in achieving this goal.
