Thomas Lausten new CEO of MOBOTIX AG
Thomas Lausten assumes responsibility as the new CEO of MOBOTIX. On March 27, 2017, the supervisory board has appointed Thomas Lausten as new Chief Executive Officer.
This "rounds-out" the management board composed of Dr. Oliver Gabel (CTO), Dr. Tristan Haage (CSO) and Klaus Kiener (CFO).
Lausten has both corporate and medium-sized business experience. He was responsible as Global Sales Director at Siemens, as well as the Managing Director of the Nordic region in ADI Global Distribution.
As Vice President of EMEA, Lausten contributed significantly to the success of Milestone Systems. He is familiar with MOBOTIX due to his previous experience in this market.
"With Thomas Lausten, MOBOTIX was able to win a top manager from the video security industry," says Yuji Ichimura, Chairman of the Supervisory Board of MOBOTIX. "We are glad to have him on board as CEO of MOBOTIX".
Following Klaus Gesmann's resignation due to illness in February 2016 the company was led by the three management members without chairman. Effective from June 15, the management board consists of four members including Thomas Lausten.
MOBOTIX is a company with their own line of German-made IP camera products. These are deployed in high-security applications, including at prisons, airports and soccer stadiums of all sizes, since there are no limits on the number of cameras or users. Both the professional video management software and the video analysis function are part of the MOBOTIX system solution. In addition, software updates are provided for download free of charge to provide investment security with a maximum return on investment. Further information: www.mobotix.com
