Toomaj Freydouny is an originally Iranian marketing consultant and scholar and serial entrepreneur from Berlin who has been encouraged by many other experts & academics in four continents. While pursuing a degree in IT, he began his marketing career in 2000 as a door-to-door vendor and seller in exhibition booths in Iran.

In 2013, Trade World Magazine (Issue 35) Iran titled him as “the most capable marketing person in the Middle East.” In 2014, Al Ries mentioned Tom as “one of the few marketing people who has a complete understanding of marketing.” In 2015, he went on to pursue his higher education in marketing with a scholarship from the University of Roehampton, London.
Toomaj left the marketing world in mid-2016 after being diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis and because of the adverse effects caused by the disease; however, he resumed his job with the establishment of ARDOXSO GmbH in 2019. He describes the experience of living in different countries and cultures and his multilingualism as a turning point in his personal and professional life.
