cogon CEO Carlos Gómez-Sáez hands management over to Sven Lindemann

Carlos Gómez-Sáez (41) hands over the management of the cogon AG to Sven Lindemann, CEO of Hanse Orga AG, on July 1, 2013 after successfully integrating the company in the Hanse Orga Group.

Gómez-Sáez was appointed to the executive board in April 2010 with the task to initiate a repositioning and to sell the cogon AG to a strategic investor. Upon the successful reframing of the company, the shareholders sold the company to Hanse Orga AG, an independent software and consulting firm for SAP-embedded solutions in finance and accounting, in June 2012. Gómez-Sáez had committed himself at the time to complete the integration process of cogon AG in the Hanse Orga Group. Upon the successful conclusion, Gómez-Sáez now wants to meet new professional challenges. Sven Lindemann will take on the task in addition to his role as CEO of Hanse Orga AG.

Herbert Lindemann, chairman of the supervisory board at cogon AG, said: "We would like to thank Carlos Gómez-Sáez for his excellent work without which the integration of cogon in the Hanse Orga Group would not have been possible. Hanse Orga Group is in an excellent position as market leader in Germany today. We are pleased that Carlos Gómez-Sáez will remain associated with the company in a consulting capacity and that we still have access to his extensive experience and know-how."
