TIS: Peter Giesekus is retiring
Bocholt, May 21, 2019
Peter Giesekus (63), Sales Director of telematics provider TIS, is retiring on 30 November 2019. The trained forwarding merchant has been working for the Bocholt-based family business since 2008 and is considered one of the pioneers of mobile communication between trucks and disposition. Business friends and companions can meet the enthusiastic hobby musician from 4 to 7 June at the TIS GmbH stand during the transport logistic in Munich. TIS will be exhibiting in Hall A3, Stand 317/518.
After training as a forwarding agent in 1977, Giesekus made his first career steps with Danzas. In the following years, the practitioner took over management responsibility at various forwarding agencies and in 1986 he was already managing director of a medium-sized food forwarding agency with 150 vehicles.
After that, Giesekus turned to logistics IT and worked for software companies like Cap debis and PAS. Several larger projects sparked his interest in the possibilities of telematics in 1994. In 2000, he took over the management of Qualcomm QES GmbH, where he was responsible for the implementation of international telematics projects in Germany, Poland, Austria and Switzerland.
In 2008, Giesekus joined TIS GmbH as co-managing director and since then has been responsible for the sales department. "At TIS, I was able to really develop and experience a good working environment," explains the telematics veteran. "We have grown steadily for years and today make highly demanded projects in mobile order processing and telematics. With a clear focus on logistics and mobility, we are very well positioned in the market." Against this background, he will be able to say "goodbye" with peace of mind, and then have time for family, travel and music. "
His duties at TIS GmbH will be taken over by his managing colleague Markus Vinke, who will be assisted by head of sales Mike Ahlmann and the head of the project planning and support department Bernd Schmitz. The sales team has been sustainably strengthened since October 2018 by Oliver Krahmer, Daniel Schlütter and Fabian Bielefeld. A smooth transition and comprehensive customer care is thus guaranteed.
