Patrick Rohlfsen, Engagement Manager at Wrike
Patrick partners with some of the most remarkable brands in the world, and helps them get from here to HERE using Wrike. He makes work management magic happen by weaving Wrike into the fabric of their business. The teams of Wrikers he leads works to understand a client’s business intimately enough to learn how people work together (or don't work together). Then the team builds a solution to make the interactions between people much better. He ask lots of questions about their businesses. Often the same ones. Sometimes the right ones. Then, when the mission is clear, he deploys the necessary resources to build a solution and make it repeatable. Engagement teams make the intake cleaner, the work more productive, and the output faster/better. Patrick and his team leave the client with a better business. Patrick brings 7+ years of experience as a Wriker user to his clients and has deployed 60+ businesses and 10,000+ users.
