Volker Gerloff is to withdraw from the company, and his responsibilities spread to a new management team. Dr Hendrik Frank will take over the engineering and technology side, while Karsten Strothmann will manage sales responsibilities and Julia Timpe will take over administration.
Guido Spix, director and CTO/COO of Multivac, praised Gerloff’s contributions to the business.
“Through his efforts during the last 25 years, Mr Gerloff has contributed significantly to the development and integration of the company into the Multivac Group.”
