We are Compuwave
A company’s most important capital is its employees. We are proud of our employees. Their motivation and qualifications contribute significantly to our success – and they make a meaningful contribution towards our now having been distinguished for the second time in succession by the magazine Focus as a growth champion.
In order that this remains like this, we regularly train our employees on our products – above all on the products of approx. our 20 top manufacturers.
Fun is also a constituent part of working successfully. This is why we regularly hold employee events such as canoe expeditions, take part as a group in B2Run etc.
For we would also like to find the best solution for you and realise this in future with motivated employees who have access to a large amount of know-how.
Meet the management
After studying business administration in Regensburg and Kempten and positions at Simon Marketing (with McDonalds as their principal customer) his path led him firstly as a marketer, later in other diverse roles into the IT industry to the re-publisher MicroBasic in Munich. Not only did he get to know the IT distribution market there, but he also met Holger Brunken, his future business partner.
Following the change to SOS software, where he built up the distribution business in a very short period, he entered Compuwave‘s senior management as a shareholder and executive director in 2009, in order to realise his joint vision of a leading non-standard software distributor together with Holger Brunken.
Along with his job as Chief Executive Officer, Mr. Schnapka plays basketball, and heads off into the mountains as often as he can (climbing or skiing) and enjoys driving fast cars.
After training as a wholesaler and outside sales merchant and working for the Bremen Cotton Exchange for five years, Holger Brunken started studying economics in Bremen. This should be the keystone of his future career in the field of IT and as an entrepreneur.
After founding, establishing and selling a successful events agency, bringing Mr. Brunken to Munich as a consequence, he successfully established a software reseller here as a substantial software provider in B2C.
At the same time he already manages his company Compuwave Software & IT Services, which he transferred into a private limited company in 2007, in which he has been pursuing his vision of becoming one of the best providers of non-standard software together with Oliver Schnapka since 2009.
When he is not busy working for Compuwave, he can often be found at concerts, festivals and literary events. In addition he would like to extend, look after and add to his private collection of vinyl. He maintains his level of fitness for all these tasks and activities through swimming regularly and by windsurfing in the summertime.
