I was immediately excited about the AUVESY-MDT team and the excellent products we’re working with. For our further growth course, we will now align the company's organization and financial processes and scale them accordingly. I’ll also be focusing on compliance and the financing of further international expansion, including via M&A.

The expansion of the Executive Board as well as the related new organizational structure are the logical next steps in our success and growth course. This will further strengthen our position as an international key player in data and end-point management in industrial automation.
