Reorganisation of the SimPlan Management Board
On 31st December 2013, Dirk Wortmann, founding member, shareholder and board member from the very start of the company, left the SimPlan AG management board at his own request. Nevertheless, he will still steer the course of SimPlan’s Chinese subsidiary and will remain with the company in an advisory capacity.
Dr. Ulrich Burges
Dr. Harry Kestenbaum
Dr. Harry Kestenbaum and Dr. Ulrich Burges have been appointed to the management board. Both are long-standing employees of the simulation service company. Dr. Kestenbaum has taken on the resorts sales and marketing. Dr. Burges’ responsibilities on the board include project management and IT. In the course of the reorganization, Dr. Sven Spieckermann, the second member of the original SimPlan management board and responsible for finance, was appointed as CEO. With the expansion of the management board, SimPlan meets the increasing management demands of a growing company.
“We are well-positioned to face the challenges of the coming years. Our focus will remain on growth. Apart from expanding our range of products, we also want to offer our customers further advantages in the scope and speed of our services while maintaining our high project quality. This also necessitates re-thinking our structures and processes.” Dr. Sven Spieckermann commented on the management board reorganisation.
