As one of the founders of CANCOM in 1992, Klaus Weinmann played a key role in shaping the company’s development. During his time as CEO until 30 September 2018, the CANCOM Group grew dynamically, also thanks to a successful M&A strategy, to become one of the largest IT service providers and managed service providers in the DACH region. Important milestones, such as CANCOM’s IPO in 1999, also occurred during his time on the Executive Board. As a long-standing expert in the industry, he brings experience in the markets of the future that are important for the CANCOM Group and has an excellent network. He strengthens the expertise of the Supervisory Board, particularly in the areas of corporate management, market and industry knowledge and M&A.
The Executive Board and Supervisory Board would like to thank Dr. Koniarski in particular for his trustworthy and constructive work on the Supervisory Board of CANCOM SE over the past ten years.
