Oliver BARNACK has many years of operational experience in infrastructure and application development, making him the ideal addition to the management team of TALANX Systeme AG; his appointment will support the company and its divisions in ensuring they are well equipped for the future in terms of IT. I look forward to collaborating with our new Board Members, and wish them both great success in their future roles."
