Daniel Welzer appointed as Chief Sales Officer (CSO)

The Board of Management of the international technology manager and financing expert CHG-MERIDIAN is changing, with Daniel Welzer taking over responsibility for sales and marketing from Frank Kottmann on January 1, 2023.

Daniel Welzer has been appointed to the Board of Management in the role of Chief Sales Officer (CSO) at CHG-MERIDIAN AG effective from January 1, 2023. He succeeds Frank Kottmann, who decided that he would step down from the Board of Management on his own accord on December 31, 2022 after ten years of service.

“We would like to express our sincere thanks to Frank Kottmann, who has played a crucial part in driving forward key sales topics during his time on the Board of Management, particularly in establishing solutions as the core of our successful sales business. He introduced many new sales-related functions in this area, permanently changing them along the way and ensuring they are solution-oriented,” says Jürgen Mossakowski, Chairman of the Supervisory Board of CHG-MERIDIAN.

“We have now gained another highly experienced executive with an international profile for the role of Chief Sales Officer. Daniel Welzer is a great addition to our Board of Management and will provide new impetus for our continuing success,” adds Jürgen Mossakowski.
