History and Mission

Founded by colleagues and friends William and Oliver, Prianto was set up to cover the distribution of often overlooked but highly innovative niche enterprise software solutions. Read about our very own founding myth here:

  • Prianto was coined using the first names of the children of founder William Geens, Priska and Anton
  • Co-founder Oliver Roth committed to his share of Prianto by signing a beer mat at William´s favourite pub
  • William used to tune and successfully sell beautiful oldtimers under the Prianto brand
  • The first important client was provided by a „non-profit business angel“
  • Two of Oliver´s best friends from high school are now an important part of Prianto´s sales force

From Prianto Germany to Prianto Group

Prianto Group founders share an intertwined common history and get along very well. Together we strive to grow awareness for forward-thinking, cutting-edge solutions and technologies globally. Read about how it all evolved from Prianto GmbH Germany:

  • Before founding Prianto UK, CEO Yuri Pasea announced that he was taking a year-long sabbatical. He was called exactly 365 days later to ask when he could start the company!
  • It was Yuri who then passed the ball to Rafal Goszyk, local sales manager of Poland.  The two of them had worked together previously.
  • The founders of Prianto Benelux, Rashied and Carina where going to start their VAD company without Prianto, but after a call from - again Yuri - and a meeting with William and Oliver (which ended with dancing on tables), they decided to join the Prianto clan.
  • Founders of Prianto USA, Fred Green and Tom Zorn were well retired and content. However, founding fever grabbed them again when they heard of Prianto´s plan to expand to the USA and they never looked back!
