Chief Executive Officer
This economics graduate has a clear goal – to sustainably increase q.beyond’s value. To achieve this, he has worked in recent years to turn our company into what it is now: a Cloud, SAP and IoT provider. Measures such as the sale of the telecommunications business, the strategic realignment and the rebranding as q.beyond provide the foundation for the company’s successful future. Alongside strategy, Jürgen Hermann also focuses on Investor Relations and M&A, as well as on Marketing and Communications. As a founding member, he played a key role in organising our company’s IPO in 2000. He became CFO in 2009 and in 2013 succeeded the company’s co-founder Dr. Bernd Schlobohm as CEO.
