congatec appoints Thomas Schultze as Chief Operating Officer

congatec — a supplier of standardised and customised embedded computer boards and modules — has appointed Thomas Schultze as its new Chief Operating Officer (COO) and member of the executive board, with effect as of July 2019.

Schultze’s main task will be to further increase the global operational efficiency and drive excellence in the supply chain. His focus areas include agile processes to improve customer service, ensure first-class quality and technical support as well as cost efficiency. As an asset-light company with fabless production at multiple sites around the globe, digitisation also plays an increasingly important role for congatec.

With a business engineering degree and a General Management Master from the SGMI Management Institut St. Gallen, Schultze offers more than 20 years of experience in operations management, gained most recently as Vice President Global Operations at medical device company Ziehm Imaging. Prior to that, he held leading positions in companies such as laboratory equipment manufacturer Heidolph Instruments and automotive systems supplier Harman.

“We are excited to welcome Thomas Schultze to the team at congatec and look forward to working together with him as we continue to drive growth through operational excellence,” said congatec CEO Jason Carlson. “As a strongly growing technology company we will benefit from his extensive experience leading operations in larger organisations.”
