Walter Schumann leaves G DATA

Walter Schumann is stepping down from his role as sales and marketing director with Bochum-based G DATA Software AG on 30 June 2016 for personal reasons. Walter Schumann joined the board of G DATA in 2014 and was responsible for the sales and marketing functions. In addition to this, he acted as the managing director of the Bochum security software provider’s eight foreign subsidiaries. His main tasks included the restructuring of the national and international sales and marketing organisation, which was successfully planned and implemented under his leadership.

We thank Walter Schumann for the valuable initiatives that he established during his time as a board member of G DATA. It is due to him that our sales and marketing structure was able to gain new, creative impetus among our customers and marketing partners during a period of intensive transformation. We are very sorry to see him go and wish him all the best for his future professional and personal life.

Holger Bergmann, head of the supervisory board at G DATA Software AG

“I am leaving with a good feeling and the belief that G DATA is positioned for further growth, both nationally and internationally. The clear commitment to the channel and the close collaboration with the trade will continue to be the main pillar of the G DATA sales strategy in the future,” said Walter Schumann.

G DATA Software AG is using this change to trim down the board. In the future, the board will consist of the two founders, Andreas Lüning and Kai Figge. Kai Figge is taking over the sales area, and the two founders will share the responsibility for marketing.
