Jörg Schroeder (41) is to become the new Chief Financial Officer (CFO) at IT service provider adesso. Schroeder comes from BITMARCK Hold-ing GmbH, where he has worked for the past 11 years, most recently as CFO. He will replace adesso’s long-standing CFO, Christoph Junge, who has chosen to leave the company with effect from 30 September.
Jörg Schroeder will become a member of the Executive Board on 1 October and will be responsible for Finance and Controlling, Investor Relations and Mergers & Acquisitions (M&A). He takes over from Christoph Junge, who was CFO for 13 years. During this time, Mr Junge contributed to the successful development of adesso, helping to turn it into one of the largest independent IT companies in Germany, currently with more than 3,700 employees.
Schroeder has a degree in business information technology, a master’s in commercial law and an Executive MBA.
He is very familiar with adesso’s business divisions through his work for long-standing adesso customer BITMARCK, an IT service provider for statutory health insurance companies. There the focus is jointly on the further development of the portfolio management system, which 85 % of German private health insurers use as standard for the management of their members.
Schroeder is excited about his new role at adesso and has set his first goals: “adesso has undergone rapid development over the past two decades and is now also an internationally successful player in the IT market. In my new role, I would like to keep adesso on this successful growth path and further expand the internationalisation of the company. The modernisation, i.e. digitalisation, of our own finance division is right at the top of my operational agenda.”
Institutional investors will have a chance to meet the new adesso CFO at several investor roadshows this autumn. For example, Schroeder will be repre-senting adesso at the Large & Midcap Event in Paris in mid-October and at the German Equity Forum (Deutsches Eigenkapitalforum) in Frankfurt at the end of November.
