She is definitely a little crazy. At night she dreams of cork products and during the day the others have to pay for it. Cork is not a natural material for her, but a way of life (almost a religion, I'm afraid). There are no limits to her corked imagination and her ecstasy seems to be downright contagious. Clarissa is a bit of a workaholic, because when asked what she does in her spare time, you only get raised eyebrows in response. If there is a little bit of air left, she spends her time with the children, of course. And when the sun has disappeared behind the mountains, she can be found at the odd party, because she's not just a MacBook girl.
Husband of Clarissa and master of product madness. He coordinates when what is produced so that it can be shipped together in the end. He is the cork whisperer and knows at which carpet length which addition must be made, so that in the end the dimensions are correct. He has it in mind how where when & what needs to be glued and then how long it is best to leave the piece alone. He keeps the wild chickens in the manufactory in check and does not spare the one or other audacious saying. And very important: He has nerves of steel (there are reasons why Edwin took over the production and not Clarissa:-) He hardly has any free time, but if he does, he throws himself at the children or the Krumbach music club is waiting for the thoroughbred musician.
Also called the hero of the code. Essentially, his job is to make the impossible possible. Not so easy, because there are many wishes to fulfill: from optimization processes to the very big wishes of small product developers and marketing princesses. Well, and then good Markus also has many ingenious ideas of his own with which we want to make life easier for you in the Clarissakork world. The list is almost inexhaustible. End not in sight. When he wants to relax from our wishes, you can find him on the drums of various bands.
Herlinde is someone very special: She is our first employee! Our hard-working pearl likes to provide Clarissa with chocolates when it seems necessary to her nerves and also otherwise she touchingly takes care of everyone and everything. Herlinde is the master of oversizes and round carpets. The Mellauerin leaves only reluctantly her large sewing machine, because that is her absolute favorite place in the manufactory. Privately, however, Herlinde does not allow herself to be tied down to one place: In her free time, she gondolas around somewhere between Mittagspitze, Munich, Vienna and Crete.
Secretly, we keep an error bar list here. Doris' slip of paper usually remains empty. The Brain is her name here, too. She makes sure that you get your products nicely packaged in the right color and quantity. Sounds simple, but it's not. But that's not Doris' only talent - she keeps her dry and charming sense of humor even at chaotic peak times. If you look into her face, you can't help but put on a big smile as well. In private, Doris is best found on a hike up the Hochäderich with a stop at her parents' Alpe Hochwies.
Anna is not easily rattled by anything. No matter whether our cutter Fritz is on strike, the orders are piling up immeasurably or Clarissa wants another new prototype - Anna remains calm and doesn't make anyone nervous. And anyone who thinks you can't do a craft job with long, painted fingernails is welcome to get tips from her. If you want to see the beautiful Anna outside our manufactory, you have to go in search of her. On weekends she likes to cross the border or you can find her cuddling with the dog in beautiful nature.
Whew, where do I start, where do I stop? Birgit is our 1000-sassa and has accordingly many agendas on the screen. She manages our store in Hittisau, advises customers on carpet selection on site, she is the friendly voice on the phone and is also happy to help you by mail. She keeps suppliers in check and orders everything that the manufactory wants. In addition, she helps Clarissa with the online store, gets print and embroidery files ready, and so on... Yes, and because that's not challenge enough for the youngster, she also helps out with her expertise in the manufactory. She is more or less the Master of Disaster. No wonder she likes to run up mountains or get on her bike at the weekend.
Also called Ideen-Beth ... Yes the Elisabeth has many, many great ideas - for products or for the online store. She also comes up with nice surprises for customers. She keeps the team on its toes in any case and makes sure that we don't get bored the day after tomorrow. A real marketing junkie. You have to learn as you go. That's why she also supports Clarissa when it comes to Soschäl Media... In other words, she tends to our influencer sheep, negotiates hard, checks out the best deals and keeps a watchful eye on which influencer is the best horse in the stable. When you have so many ideas, you need to take a break, which is why you'll often find our Ideas Beth on our yoga mat.
Good is not good enough. Maria sews not only beautiful, but perfect. Without ifs and buts. She loves to work with our natural material cork and is happy as a lark every time we add a new product to our range. Only last year at Christmas, when the flood of orders for the Shopper ANNA had no end, she was also happy to be able to sew the well-tried placemats again. Maria is friendliness personified and keeps her smile into the evening even on really stressful days. Nature is her absolute favorite energy tank.
When Christa checks our manufactory, we hold our breath, because with our dear colleague everything must be abbreviated correctly and the cork sorted by color according to the alphabet. Anything else is unacceptable. She prefers to work with Edwin at the gluing machine, but she is just as good at sewing and, thanks to her perfectionism, is Markus' first choice when it comes to adding something to the online store. And don't let her find a product there that wasn't photographed exactly as it is currently being manufactured. Then there's trouble for Clarissa. Having a Monk on the team is sometimes challenging, but at the end of the day it's a great gift, because someone has to keep an eye on things. And despite a strict eye, Christa is up for any fun and a really loyal soul. She also demonstrates her love of detail in her private life, as she loves to craft elaborate cards.
She is not a textile designer and yet she simply wanted to work for us - certainly because we are so insanely cool. And so she is now the boss of color samples! Caroline also masters occasional special orders with great aplomb. And when she's not cutting and binding patterns, she's lovingly taking care of her children.
Jennifer is responsible for many things that have casual acronyms and which the normal earthling has zero idea about. SEO, SEA, ADS. No, these are not diseases, but it is supposedly called performance marketing. Well, we never stop learning here. Jennifer controls our online marketing activities with confidence. She makes our cool store even better known and makes sure that it doesn't get lost in the Google jungle. On top of that, dear Jennifer is a proud mom.
Elmar is Edwin's uncle and has been retired for about a year. No reason to put his hands in his lap, he thought, and so he continues with what he left off with. You see, he is our driver and drives the cork to the embroidery shop, to the print shop and back again. He loves to get around a bit and on the way back there's always a friendly saying for the girls in the manufactory. Otherwise, Elmar is still busy with his farm and the forest. There is always something to do. He certainly doesn't get bored that quickly.
