Chrono24 Announces Jennifer Bodenseh as CFO




Chrono24, the world’s leading online marketplace for luxury watches, announces the arrival of Jennifer Bodenseh as its new Chief Financial Officer. Jennifer joins Chrono24 as an experienced CFO in the IT industry and will be focused on strategic business decisions, such as corporate growth and international business development, but also on Investor Relations and IPO readiness.

A longtime veteran of INIT Group for almost 4 years, Jennifer most recently held the position of CFO, overseeing controlling and logistics, financial services, data protection and compliance, investor relations and M&A. This role was built upon an additional 9+ years of service to INIT Group.

Co-CEO and founder of Chrono24, Tim Stracke, commented, “We’re thrilled to have Jennifer join our rapidly expanding company. Her global expertise with international finance teams and her complex IT system routine will be a key success factor for Chrono24.”

“We also thank our outgoing CFO Stephan Kniewasser, who initiated our IPO readiness process and laid the groundwork for our next moves in finance. Stephan still works as an advisor and coach to Chrono24 and will remain a shareholder.”
