Since October 1st, Matthijs von Witte will be responsible for the strategic direction of global sales and will help to further strengthen gate-startup CELUS‘ position.
CELUS‘ goal is to become the global leader in automation software for electronics development. With his extensive knowledge and experience in the electronics engineering industry, von Witte has a track record of delivering high revenue goals.
“The Celus platform brings disruptive innovation to the hardware design process. I am truly excited to be part of the team and to be in a position to help drive meaningful change to the electronics industry that will help our customers to mitigate the increasing design speed and complexity requirements.”, von Witte states.
Matthijs von Witte has 22 years’ commercial business management experience, and joins CELUS from Molex, where he was responsible for the post-merger integration of FCT Electronics into Molex to become a fully integrated Molex product line. Matthijs has a successful track record of leading global sales development strategies on a global basis.
Tobias Pohl, CEO from CELUS adds: “With Matthijs van Witte we managed to successfully expand our management team with an additional important management function. Matthijs has proven to be a successful and reliable Manager in his previous positions and built and lead Sales departments. I got to know Matthijs as a strategic thinker and I am glad to welcome him in the team.”
With Wittes position the fourth position in the middle management has been well-staffed in no time. Earlier this year, Nicole Lontzek has been appointed as the new Head of Marketing, as well as filled positions in R&D and HR. This new top hire plays a vital role for the technology company and is another milestone in the global growth strategy.
