Long-Serving Employees Take on New Tasks in Managerial Levels!
The first half of 2020 has had a lasting impact on the entire market situation and clearly shows that such changes must be implemented dynamically and quickly in companies. Kathrein Solutions GmbH uses this time to reorganize the management level and business activities.
With Emre Gürbüz as the new Chief Sales Officer and Christian Schnebinger as Deputy Sales Officer, the company is relying on two well-established employees in sales, with Manuel Reichl taking over the Professional Services Department.
"The holistic approach to solutions adopted in the past few years is to be supplemented with further target-oriented measures," explains Emre Gürbüz. "We want and have to scale again to a much greater extent via our integration and software partners in order to be able to optimally support our customers in the target region DACH, but also globally", adds Schnebinger. "Our partners, whether small or large, deserve optimal support in order to constantly bring them closer to the latest developments".
The objective of the new management will be to develop a future-oriented structure in international sales. The main objective is to strengthen the cooperation with new and existing partners, and to further increase the visibility of the brand.
Emre Gürbüz has been working exclusively in the Auto ID business since 2007. He started out in consulting at nofilis AutoID in Ismaning and moved to Kathrein Solutions in 2014. Due to his experience and comprehensive view, Gürbüz took over the management of the newly created Professional Services Department, which led to the acquisition of nofilis in 2016/17. As the next step, he took over the position of Chief Sales Officer in May 2020.
Christian Schnebinger joined the former Kathrein RFID in 2016 in the Sales Department. For more than two years now, he has been responsible for the Intelligent Transportation Systems Division, one of the largest business units at Kathrein Solutions. During his entire career, Mr. Schnebinger has always been involved in the field of sales controlling and will now be responsible for this area.
Emre Gürbüz will be succeeded in the Professional Services Department by Manuel Reichl, who has also been working at Kathrein for many years as a Project Manager for a wide range of products (mobile communications, IoT) and applications (development/production, contract projects), and has been Deputy Head of the Professional Services Department for three years.
Mr. Reichl was significantly responsible for the establishment of a professional project management and has implemented clear structures.
"It is absolutely fantastic that we were able to fill these important positions with colleagues from our own ranks. It is extremely important that the identity of our company is carried on and kept alive”, expressed Thomas Brunner, Managing Director of Kathrein Solutions enthusiastically.
