Josef Bielefeld übergibt seinen Teil der Geschäftsführung der TIS GmbH an Markus Vinke.

Bocholt, September 8, 2016

Josef Bielefeld (65), founder and owner of the mobile telematics solutions specialist TIS GmbH, passes on his part of management to Markus Vinke (41) on October 1st. Thus, 30 years after its foundation, the medium-sized company performs its first alternation of generations. Markus Vinke will be responsible for all operational areas at TIS. Beside him Peter Giesekus keeps holding his position as the second managing director of marketing and sales, as he did in the past. Josef Bielefeld will continue to work for his company even after retiring from the company management, the ownership structure will remain unchanged. The shares of the GmbH are owned by the family Bielefeld.

Markus_Vinke-portraitVinke is working for TIS since 2002 and first collected experience as a software developer and project manager here, before he took over the management of the software development department in 2012. The Diplom-Ingenieur für Elektrotechnik (graduate electrical engineer) played an essential role in the redevelopment of the modular telematics solution TISLOG based on new technologies such as web services, HTML5 and Java Script. At the orientation of TIS GmbH as a specialist for sophisticated and individual telematics solutions based on standard software, the native Borkener does not intend to change anything in the future: "The company should continue to grow solidly and with good judgement," promises Vinke.
Bielefeld had planned his personal succession two years ago and communicated it internally since 2015. "As a passionate engineer and proven leader with a keen sense of the economically feasible Markus Vinke was my preferred candidate for a long time," explains Bielefeld, who also has an engineering degree. With the new management, TIS is better equipped than ever for the future challenges in a rapidly changing technological environment.
