Kathrein Strengthens the Management Team

Kathrein enlarges its management team by two experienced managers: Jürgen Walter and Dr. Hermann Rodler. They will be significantly involved in shaping the strategic orientation of the company in the coming years, thereby strengthening Kathrein’s position as a systems and solutions provider.

Jürgen Walter is responsible for the newly created "Solutions" business unit, which also comprises software and service solutions.
He worked for Siemens and Nokia Siemens Networks in different key positions for many years. In his last position as CEO Central Europe and CEO of Fujitsu Technology Solutions GmbH, he was responsible for the Fujitsu business in the DACH countries.

Dr. Hermann Rodler was won over as head of the new "Communication Products" business unit. He has been working in the communications business since 1987 and held numerous management positions at Siemens and Siemens Nokia Networks in both Germany and abroad. His most recent position was as Management Spokesperson of Nokia Siemens Networks in Germany where he was responsible for starting the global business of mobile high-availability networks.

In a connected world, technologies are increasingly converging and becoming even more complex. The demands in the field of communication technologies are constantly rising. "We have a uniquely diversified know-how. A tight interlinking of our fields of competence is decisive for meeting the challenges of an intelligently connected world." said Anton Kathrein, CEO of the Kathrein Group.
