Georg Magg has resigned from his office as a member of the board of directors (Vorstand) as well as from his position as Chief Executive Officer (Vorstandsvorsitzender) of Integralis AG with effect as of 5 September 2012. Simon Church, the current Chief Operating Officer (COO) of Integralis AG, is promoted to the role of Chief Executive Officer (Vorstandsvorsitzender), Integralis AG, effective 6 September 2012 and will continue to work alongside Chief Financial Officer (CFO) Heiner Luntz to drive the strategic direction and global growth of the company. The role of COO will not be backfilled.
Luc Loos, Chairman of Integralis AG’s Supervisory Board, said: “We would like to thank Georg for his outstanding achievements in driving Integralis’ growth, particularly his role in overseeing the acquisition of a majority shareholding by NTT Communications Group in 2009 and building the strong team that we have today. Following almost seven successful years in the Vorstand, Georg has informed us that he is ready to step down and pursue other activities.
“Simon has got to know the company inside and out in his previous roles as UK Managing Director, and more recently as Chief Operating Officer of Integralis AG. We are confident that he is the right person to lead Integralis through the next stage of our global growth; in turn the combination of Simon and Heiner Luntz has proven to be a strong management team,” he added.
Integralis CEO Simon Church added: “These are exciting times for Integralis. With the ongoing partnership with NTT we are in an excellent position to develop and launch new service-led solutions and support our customers worldwide. Uniquely, we offer a portfolio of global security, governance, risk and compliance solutions that blend expert consulting, managed services and the most appropriate technologies. I am looking forward to leading Integralis to further success along this path.”
