Chris Leffin | Co-Founder

Today we want to introduce you to Chris Leffin, Co-Founder at bluplanet

bluplanet🌍: Why did you decide to work at bluplanet?
Christian: I have been a Salesforce Customer, Salesforce Consulting Partner as well as a Salesforce Employee, and when I learned about the opportunity to create a Salesforce reseller, I was immediately excited 😁. Being in the cloud ⛅️ ecosystem for some years I see a lot of opportunities ahead of us helping companies, organizations, and NGOs become more customer-centric, more digital, and more successful and creating a better future together 🤝. Together with Christopher Roskowetz and Thorsten Koehler we founded bluplanet in 2021 and are building up a new type of cloud ecosystem partner and reseller.

bluplanet🌍: What are your responsibilities at bluplanet?
Christian: Being one of the founders and an active member of the team I think my responsibility is to help everyone become more successful 🚀.

bluplanet🌍: What makes working at bluplanet so special?
Christian: We are a young company. It is a startup and we are growing quickly🌪. At the same time, we are working closely together with Salesforce and this large cloud ecosystem. So I think it is a good mix of startup mentality, agility, speed, and being connected to one of the great companies of our time with its vibrant ecosystem.

bluplanet🌍: What matters most to you?
Christian: Values are very important to me. I grew up in Belgium🇧🇪, my father is German 🇩🇪 and my mother is Dutch🇳🇱. Crossing borders and being part of different communities has been normal for me from an early age. I also had the luck 🍀 to visit other countries, cultures, meet people from various backgrounds🌎🌍🌏. Today, I am a father of a girl 👧🏼and a boy 👦. I believe in equality - in equal chances for everyone - and at the same time, I admire the diversity that spans this colorful spectrum of life. Seeing Marc Benioff promote the idea of stakeholder capitalism and that "business is the world’s greatest platform for change" has influenced me as well 😁. I am working hard on having an answer to the question of my kids, what I have done to make the world a better place 🌷.

bluplanet🌍: What’s your life-hack?
Christian: Values create value.
