Ralf Schwoebel, CEO of Tradebit - puzzler
Ralf first got into eCommerce at the age of 22 when he launched the first internet shopping mall in Germany in 1995. His background as a Commodore AMIGA game developer and book helped him to thrive in the new internet era.
In 1997 he founded the open source eCommerce company intraDAT, and from 1997 to 2000 was a key member of the management board.
Between 2000 to 2002 he was CEO of intraDAT International, Inc (based in Reston, VA) where he delivered several presentations on open source development and Linux eCommerce projects.
He is still an active member of the Linux community and sponsors several open source projects.
Ralf delivers 2-3 presentations a year on eCommerce and SEO related topics at various top industry conferences in both Europe and the US.
As the founder and CEO of Tradebit, Inc. he is responsible for business development and company strategy. He still loves to code in PHP, however, and his colleagues try to keep him away from the keyboard as much as possible.
He is married and an active blogger.
