Jamie Lipps, an award-winning Brooklyn-based media professional with experience in both the private sector and higher education, is the newest addition to Haensel AMS.
Since spring of 2020, Jamie has been serving as the company’s Director of US Operations, a first for Haensel AMS. It’s his job to act as communications liaison between US clients and the analytics team in Berlin, while also managing team-building and all day-to-day operations.
“I won’t be called on for my extensive knowledge of algorithms, thankfully,” jokes Jamie, “but I will be here to help our organization grow, and to make sure our brand puts its best face forward while facilitating good communication between new clients and the analytics people.”
Jamie first met company founder and CEO Alwin Haensel in Berlin in the early 2000s, and was impressed with the young math student’s drive and determination. “I’d never met anyone so focused, and so solution-oriented. If he made up his mind to do something, he did it. There was never a question.”
And what is Jamie looking most forward to in his new role? “Well, the brand development part is fun, and sort of second nature. But I’m most excited to help new clients as they start to work with these guys, making sure I give them a seamless transition into their journey with HAMS. It can be intimidating, I know—just the term ‘data science’ scares some of us! But part of Alwin’s and his team’s philosophy is that they’re just people, and that they’ll be here for their clients every step of the way. I know them, and I know what determined men and women they are. That’s not spin, it’s just the people. It’s them. It’s how they do business.”
Jamie Lipps began his new position with Haensel AMS on June 1, 2020.
