Mobotix names new CFO

The Mobotix supervisory board appointed Klaus Gesmann as new CFO at the meeting on December 13, 013. The industrial engineer from Kaiserslautern, Germany, will take up his new position on January 1, 2013. With Gesmann, Mobotix gains a manager who has already many years of experience as a CFO.

After completing his studies at the University of Kaiserslautern, Gesmann began his career at the University's Chair of Business Information Systems and Operations Research. Two years later, Gesmann was managing director of the Business and Innovation Centre (BIC) Kaiserslautern and responsible for developing the technology center into a European center of innovation. The company was especially focused on supporting young, technology-oriented and innovative entrepreneurs. In 1999, Gesmann took over responsibility for the Finance and HR divisions as a member of the international management board at the software company TECMATH/Blue Order. He became CFO in 2006 and remained in that role until the company was sold to the NASDAQ-listed company AVID.

"Klaus Gesmann stands out on account of his own entrepreneurial activities and many years of international experience as a CFO in the technology sector," says Dr. Ralf Hinkel, CEO of Mobotix. "I am delighted that the transition within the Management Board will be completed at the beginning of 2013 and we can focus on the challenges of the international markets.“

The Mobotix management board will consist of Dr. Ralf Hinkel (CEO), Dr. Magnus Ekerot (Chief Sales Officer), Dr. Oliver Gabel (CTO) and Klaus Gesmann (CFO), effective January 1, 2013.
