Eckhart Gouras, Vice President, Greater China and Asia

Eckhart received his Juris Doctor degree at Columbia University in New York and worked for three years as an associate attorney at Coudert Brothers, one of the first U.S. law firms with an international network. He subsequently acted as a consultant on investments in eastern Germany and the People's Republic of China.
He used his experience in foreign markets to build two Berlin-based Internet phone companies. His first company Poptel was one of the first companies in Europe to use the Internet to provide phone service to customers. It involved a network of Voice-over-IP ("VoIP") gateways in Europe, the U.S. and China. Both businesses were sold to bigger providers in 1999 and 2009 and his expertise in Internet-based services and the IT sector in general contribute to the know-how within the accessio network. His work in the VoIP industry also included projects in China and his new office in Shanghai (starting in September 2010) should prove very helpful for accessio clients wishing to access the Chinese and Asian markets. In addition to pure Internet- or IT-related projects, Eckhart will be focusing on the clean tech space, including projects combining IT with clean tech know-how (e.g. smart grids).
