As Inform announces four new Co-CEOs the company advances its plan for sustainable growth.
The new Co-CEOs, Peter Frerichs, Dr. Jörg Herbers, Dr. Andreas Meyer and Matthias Berlit, will join Adrian Weiler who has been the company’s CEO since 1986.
In a statement the company said it is creating the foundation to continually build on its strong legacy, while positioning the company for its ongoing future success and sustainability.
In addition to ensuring continuity in its customer and employee relations, the extended management team will pave the way for Inform’s accelerated development in the areas of innovation, internationalisation, and human resources management.
Sustainability and internationalisation
“Sustainability in terms of organic growth, as well as trusting relationships with customers and employees, has always been regarded as an important value of Inform,” said Meyer, who will be responsible for the area of internationalisation, among other things.
“In the meantime, however, sustainability also plays an important role in an ecological sense. Optimisation technology can contribute to this, for example, through a more efficient utilisation of operational resources.”
Other focus topics for the coming years are the further expansion of international activities, for example, in North America, Australia and Asia, and the further development of agile work and management models at Inform.
“I am delighted to have added longstanding colleagues to the management team,” summarised Weiler. “At Inform, I have long advocated for a corporate culture of entrepreneurism and each of our new Co-CEOs embodies that spirit of innovation and forward-thinking. For our employees, this is a very exciting period, and for our customers, it is evidence of our commitment to bringing new strategies and a heightened focus to areas that will further strengthen our ability to serve them as resourceful and trusted business partners.”
