The global digitization specialist for the energy industry, Implico Group, has repositioned its management team. After four years at the company, the previous CEO Tim Hoffmeister leaves at his own request. Effective immediately, Rolf Adam, formerly of Hitachi Solutions, takes over the lead.
"In the last years, we have reorganized our internal processes and structures, we have successfully built up our partner network, and we have positioned ourselves as a thought leader in the energy industry. On this sound foundation, Implico will develop itself further as a global product company with major international customers. Now that this milestone has been completed, I deem it a good time to hand over the reins and take on new challenges outside the company," says Hoffmeister, explaining his move.
"With his broad expertise and experience, Tim Hoffmeister has developed a cloud strategy for Implico and thus made a significant contribution to its further development as a global digitization specialist," says Nikolaus Winther, Partner at Implico shareholder BPE, regretting the decision. "We express our special appreciation and thank him very much for his achievements and his work for our portfolio company," Winther continues.
Succeeding on Hoffmeister, Rolf Adam will assume responsibility for the Implico Group as CEO with immediate effect. He will manage the company together with Dr. Volker Braun as CTO. Adam is a proven expert at the interface of digitization and cloudification with many years of international management experience in the energy and IT industries. Most recently, he was Senior Vice President and General Manager for the DACH countries (Germany, Austria, Switzerland) at Hitachi Solutions.
With the new management team, the Implico Group aims to further drive the internationalization and digitalization of logistics processes beyond the energy sector in the context of SAP Industry Solutions. Furthermore, the company will keep a strong focus on the cloudification of the terminal management market.
