Generation change at TIS: Markus Vinke becomes new Managing Director
On October 1st, Josef Bielefeld, founder and owner of TIS, handed over his part of the management to Markus Vinke. This means that our company is undergoing the first generation change 30 years after its founding.
Markus Vinke will be responsible for all operational areas at TIS. Alongside him, Peter Giesekus will continue to be the second managing director to head the marketing and sales department. Josef Bielefeld will continue to provide advice and assistance after his retreat from the company management. The business interests of the GmbH continue to be owned by the Bielefeld family.
Markus Vinke is well known to many of you: He has been working for us since 2002 and initially gained experience as a software developer and project manager before he took over the management of the software development in 2012. The graduate engineer for electrical engineering was decisively involved in the new development of the modular telematics solution TISLOG based on new technologies such as WEB services, HTML5 and Java Script. Markus Vinke does not want to change anything in the direction of TIS GmbH as a specialist for sophisticated and individual telematics solutions based on standard software: "The company is to continue to grow solidly and with a sense of proportion".
His personal succession had already been planned by Bielefeld two years ago and since 2015 it has been communicating internally. "As a passionate engineer and a tried and tested manager with a strong sense of economics, Markus Vinke has been my favorite candidate for a long time." With the new management, TIS is better equipped than ever for future challenges in a rapidly changing technical environment.
We look forward to the continued good cooperation with you, our customers and co-operation partners.
For the team of TIS
