These appointments highlight Valtech’s commitment to ensuring customers' expectations are met as they evolve, helping more brands become digital enterprises through exceptional experiences. With decades of experience managing household-name clients between them, they’ll be responsible for acquiring and nurturing enterprise-size clients for the agency’s experience, commerce and transformation offerings.
Alexandra Mennes joins Valtech as Director of Business Development for DACH. Based in Düsseldorf, Alexandra has spent the last 7.5 years as Senior Partner Development Manager and Agency Partner Lead at Microsoft Germany. She played a core role in designing, leading and expanding Microsoft’s partner program for agencies, and bringing the program into the Microsoft Business Platform. Alexandra also developed the global blueprint for how Microsoft Corporation partners with digital agencies. Previously, she held directorial roles at Starcom MediaVest DACH and Tomorrow Focus Technologies, part of Burda Digital.
With a solid technical background, Alexandra will accelerate Valtech’s partner sales and new business activations in the German-speaking regions, using her experience working with agencies and vendors in sales and go-to-market strategy development.
Also joining Valtech’s European team, Julien Vitre takes on the role of Head of Growth for France and Romandie. Previously a Senior Account Director at Merkle, Julien led relationships with key global clients. Before that, he spent four years at Publicis Sapient, most recently as Head of Nissan Digital Platforms. At Valtech, Julien will build on his mix of client partnership and delivery experience and work with clients to drive their transformation across France and Romandie.
Julien and Alexandra will work closely with Andreas Schwarz, who has recently taken on the role of Senior Vice President of Growth in Europe. He leads Valtech’s regional growth teams and is establishing it as a first-choice company for experience innovation.
Andreas was previously Senior Director of Client Management at Publicis Sapient, responsible for nurturing the company’s automotive and consumer products clients. He also has years of experience as a management consultant specialising in digital transformation and M&A activities, and has held management roles at Host Europe Solutions and Telefonica.

With their strategic vision and entrepreneurial spirit, Andreas, Alexandra and Julien will help to cement Valtech as the go-to partner for multinational clients seeking a partner who can accelerate their transformation and enable experience innovation.”
