One of the aims of the reshuffle is to continue NFON AG’s long-term profitable growth as it moves forward and bolster its technological innovation.

Our cooperation will be based on honest and transparent communication, always aiming to position NFON for success in future developments.” Andreas Wesselmann will begin his new role at NFON AG on 1 January 2024.

A passion for technology and innovation

Andreas Wesselmann has had an impressive career. After graduating in mathematics and computer science, the new CTO began his career at Germany’s largest software firm, SAP.

Most recently, he was a member of the SAP Global Leadership team in the role of Senior Vice President, SAP HANA Database & Analytics. With more than 20 years’ experience in an international working environment, he repeatedly demonstrated how to transfer innovation to scalable business models and further expand existing cloud software solutions reliably and cost-effectively.

Andreas Wesselmann orchestrated this transformation by actively involving executives and employees in shaping the future of the company and always combined a business approach with his passion for technology and innovation.

“These are exactly the two areas that motivate me and, given this background, I am excited to get started at NFON and make good use of my experience,” said Andreas Wesselmann. As well as the role of CTO, at the start of the year he will also become the second Management Board member alongside Patrik Heider as CEO of NFON AG. “The task ahead of us is to align technology, products and sales,” said Patrik Heider. “Harmonising these three areas allows us to offer our European customers optimal support with the digital transformation and the intelligent use of state-of-the-art cloud communication solutions.”
