emnos is now part of the b.telligent network

Munich, 29th September 2022 – b.telligent welcomes emnos: As a wholly-owned subsidiary of the investment company AB Invest, backed by tech investors and b.telligent founders Sebastian Amtage and Klaus Blaschek, the expert for retail analytics is now also part of b.telligent’s accelerator with effect from 14.09.2022. b.telligent has thus expanded its portfolio with in-depth analytics expertise in the retail sector, once again linking the product and consulting businesses. Sebastian Amtage takes over management of Emnos Analytics GmbH with immediate effect.

“The future of our sector lies in the network”, Sebastian Amtage and Klaus Blaschek – founders and managing partners of b.telligent – are convinced about that. As strategic tech investors, they have thus for many years supported the growth of European companies with a focus on data and artificial intelligence in the B2B environment, thereby reinforcing b.telligent‘s network of software products and consultancy. The latest member of b.telligent‘s corporate network is emnos. The expert in retail analytics applications offers a cloud-based software-as-a-service solution enabling retail companies to strategically use customer data to generate benefits for retailers and clients throughout the entire customer journey. “b.telligent already has a very good customer base in the retail sector. We look forward to also using our analytics expertise there and growing together with b.telligent as a strong partner,” says Johannes Maas, responsible for sales and services at emnos. “In future, we want to further expand our activities in the tech sector and use the synergy effects between portfolio companies, strong consulting business, data expertise and b.telligent‘s customer network for further innovations. With the international team at emnos, we will be even more successful in entering the global retail market,” says Sebastian Amtage.

emnos:  Combining analytical competence, technology and experience

emnos is a leading provider of an analytical, AI-based B2B platform for retailers and their suppliers. This enables emnos to globally support joint, data-driven optimization of decisions on category management as part of location development and clients’ consumer experience.

The many years of experience gathered by emnos employees and their resultant expertise in the retail sector very nicely complement b.telligent’s technical and innovative competence. “This combination enables us to innovate at a whole new level. We are keenly looking forward to future developments as well as collaboration with numerous colleagues at b.telligent,” says Inga Whitmore, responsible for product management and tech at emnos. Atessa Mohséni-Leroy – former CEO and now Senior Vice President – also sees a great opportunity in partnership with b.telligent: “I am very pleased to place emnos in the experienced hands of Sebastian and b.telligent’s network, and look forward to continued participation in the company’s development.”

emnos appoints Atessa Mohséni-Leroy as new CEO

Paris / Munich, March 29th, 2022 – emnos, the leading specialist for data driven category management solutions in retail, appoints Atessa Mohséni-Leroy as new CEO.

Atessa Mohséni-Leroy has over 30 years of experience in strategy and management consulting as well as in international brand management. She’s been with emnos in the role of Chief Commercial Officer and Managing Director of emnos France since 2006. In October 2012, she took on additional responsibilities of managing company business in Southern Europe. Previously, Mohséni-Leroy worked at Bossard Gemini Consulting, where she supported various high-profile companies from the retail and consumer goods sectors. Other positions previously held by her include Director of International Marketing at Givenchy, Deputy Managing Director at Kookai and Managing Director at Ober (Lafuma Group).

Mohséni-Leroy follows Florian Baur, who’s been with emnos for seven years and has led it in the role of CEO for the past four. Baur decided to part from the company to focus on new professional ventures.

“I’m excited about taking on the role of CEO and leading the company into a new era,” says Atessa Mohséni-Leroy. “With our AI+EQ approach we’ve opened up a wide range of possibilities to help our clients advance and make most of their data. Through internationally available services like this, we’re facing exciting opportunities for growth.” AI+EQ stands for emnos’ belief that companies can only make most of their data if they combine the power of AI and technology with the knowledge and emotional intelligence of highly skilled retail consultants.

Mohséni-Leroy is a natural choice for emnos as she brings in the experience in the industry and within the company and has led the French team to success these past 15 years. She pioneered the data monetization approach for retail and is the mind behind the AI+EQ approach. In her new role, Mohséni-Leroy will lead the internationally acting teams with offices in Paris, France, and Munich, Germany.

Baur is handing over a healthy company in a growth phase: latest additions to the emnos customer community include Biedronka, a leading food retailer from Poland, and Gigasport, a leading sporting goods retailer from Austria. Key topics for the upcoming months include the continued international growth of the company as well as promoting their category management solutions and data monetization platform.

“These past years, Florian Baur has propelled emnos’ growth and development and has played a crucial part in our road to success. I’d like to thank him for his great work and his vastly positive impact on our company and wish him all the best for the future,” says Mohséni-Leroy on Baur’s departure.

„I feel extremely privileged to have been able to lead this great company for the past four years and help built it up to what it is today,” Florian Baur says. “I’m very happy to be able to leave it in the capable hands of my fantastic colleague and friend Atessa Mohséni-Leroy.”
