Today the Softing Supervisory Board has appointed Ernst Homolka member of the Executive Board. He will be responsible for finance and personnel. In his previous career Ernst Homolka has been CFO and CEO for the Munich based Nemetscheck AG between 2007 and 2011. Softing does so in response to a continuing strong sales growth which amounted to more than 20% CAGR in the last 5 years. It also reacts to the strong international focus the business received in 2014. This step provides the CEO of Softing AG, Dr. Wolfgang Trier, previously the only Executive Board member, with more time to focus on the operational management of the company’s business segments „Industrial Automation“ and „Automotive Electronics“.
