Vice President Product Management, Thomas Schmalzer, becomes new Vice President Global Sales, NOVOMATIC AG, and will hold both functions in the future.
As of 1 October 2022 Jakob Rothwangl will hand over the management of Global Sales to Thomas Schmalzer. Jakob Rothwangl started the strategic realignment of the Global Sales division in February 2021 and transformed the sales organization and business model to be fit for a successful future. He is now looking forward to a fresh challenge as regards a new strategically important project within the Group: “I would like to thank my team at Global Sales and all colleagues at HQ as well as internationally, who have supported me in this endeavour for their excellent team work.”
In 2021, Thomas Schmalzer already led Global Sales on an interim basis for the duration of six months. He will ensure a seamless transition and the consistent pursuit of the chosen path. In addition to his role as Vice President Global Sales, he will also maintain his previous area of responsibility as Vice President Product Management.
Thomas Schmalzer is full of motivation for the challenge: “I am happy to devote myself to the expanded area of responsibility with full commitment and will take on the development of product management as well as the expansion of the sales area with equal dedication and the best benefit for our customers worldwide. I am particularly looking forward to returning to the great team of the Global Sales Division in order to jointly shape the future of NOVOMATIC and its valued customers.”
