Finance Magnates has learnt that Dirk Hartig has been appointed as Chief Sales Officer for Direktbroker. According to information available on Hartig’s LinkedIn page, he is now also the founder and CEO of Bit-learn.com – a German-language, cryptocurrency education website.
Hartig has worked in the financial services industry for around twenty years. He got his start as a relationship manager with Flensburger Sparkasse – a German public savings bank that is now known as Nord-Ostsee Sparkasse following a 2008 merger.
After spending over seven years there, Hartig moved to Citibank in October of 2005. He spent almost 3 years at the banking giant, during which time he worked as a wealth management sales coach.
In 2008, Hartig moved to Postbank Vermogensberatung, a retail bank that was acquired by Deutsche Bank in May of 2018. In another sales-y role, Harting spent just under a year at the retail bank working as a relationship manager.
Midway through 2009, Hartig moved again. This time it was to a private bank based in Hamburg – Otto M. Schroder Bank. During another short spell at a firm, Harting worked as a trader for the private bank.
