On Sunday, July 11, 2021, our esteemed and beloved colleague Matthias Schwarz passed away completely unexpectedly.

In his more than 30 years of professional life, he accompanied hundreds of customers, helped them to perfect quality and strive for ever better solutions. Never was a task too complex or a requirement too demanding for him.

A few weeks ago, Matthias established the role of “Customer Success Management” in our company, because that’s what he’s always been about. He always wanted to achieve the best possible for his customers, no matter how difficult and rocky the road seemed.

With him, however, we are not only losing an employee, but first and foremost a friend!

Matthias was always an inspiration to many and a trustworthy conversational partner. He was humorous, empathetic and very educated. His hotel and audio book tips were legendary; thanks to him, many a car trip flew by.

We wish his beloved partner Daniela and his family all the strength in the world.

Dear Matthias,
it was not planned that you leave us, we were looking forward to so many more years together with you.
We miss you every day. Your mischievous smile, the lunches we had together, the many hours we spent together in the car at trade fairs, in hotels and the meeting rooms of this world, your calmness, your wit, your friendliness and of course your salmon-colored shirts.

You will forever remain a part of us and we will always carry you with us in our hearts!
