GÖRLITZ Austria GmbH expands its business activities not only in its Austrian core market but also in Eastern countries adjacent to Austria. We are pleased to welcome Mr Michael Hahn as new managing director. He will join our team on 01 March 2016.
According to Mr Hahn, the development of markets towards smart grid and industry 4.0 combined with the extensive and wide range of products included in the portfolios of GÖRLITZ and IDS group are best prerequisites to successfully develop these markets.
Mr Hahn has more than 15 years of experience in the energy industry. Being an electrical engineer, he started his career as technical project engineer at a civil engineering company. In 1998, he joined the Austrian branch of a major German meter manufacturer. Besides product management, Mr Hahn was also in charge of plant and system engineering. In 2006, he moved into his role as head of sales at a German IT company in the field of energy supply and was responsible for the development of the Austrian market. His work soon bore fruit. A branch was founded in Vienna and Mr Hahn played a significant role in establishing the company in Austria. Over the years and thanks to his manifold occupations, Mr Hahn gained great expertise in sales, marketing and key account as well as product management. Furthermore, to improve his knowledge about management and organization, he has taken up in-service studies recently.
