The Swiss software company is set to realign its organizational structure in early 2020 to provide better digitalization services for its clients. This will be achieved by a stronger focus on vertical markets. To this end, AdNovum will reorganize and expand its leadership team. The product business of the NEVIS Security Suite will be established as an independent business entity.
The Swiss software company AdNovum will undergo reorganization from early 2020. The goal is a clear orientation toward the needs of clients in the target markets banking, insurance, the public sector, growth markets, and Singapore. This includes uniting the entire service portfolio for each target market in its own market unit. Market units will thus also comprise the services of the previous business units Consulting and Service Delivery. The product business of the NEVIS Security Suite will be established as an independent business entity. This increased focus will improve AdNovum's alignment with specific client needs, as well as enhance its ability to support clients in safely and innovatively unlocking their digitalization potential, giving them an advantage in their area of business.
New Leadership Team
One aspect of the reorganization will be a restructuring and expansion of AdNovum's leadership team in line with the new organization. As of January 1, 2020, the leadership team will consist of Kornel Wassmer (Banking), Dominique Schneider (Insurance), Stefan Hediger (Public Sector, a.i.), Thomas Heynen (Growth Markets), Leonard Cheong (Singapore), Roger Bösch (Group Services, CFO), and Beat Fluri (Technology & Innovation, CTO). Roger Bösch, Beat Fluri, and Kornel Wassmer will furthermore be members of the Executive Management. Marcel Nickler will continue to lead the company as Delegate of the Board of Directors until a new CEO has been found. Peter Gassmann, head of the previous business unit Consulting, will leave AdNovum to seek new challenges outside the company. Marcel Nickler comments: «I am looking forward to working with the new leadership team. Also, I want to thank Peter Gassmann for his great commitment in building up the consulting business at AdNovum.»
NEVIS to Become Independent
The Board of Directors has decided in the course of the reorganization that NEVIS will be established as an independent business entity from early 2020. The NEVIS Group will encompass the Swiss headquarters NEVIS Security AG, NEVIS Security Kft. in Hungary as a development and production site, and NEVIS Security GmbH for sales and distribution in Germany. The NEVIS Group as well as AdNovum will remain in the possession of IHAG Holding AG. Stephan Schweizer will lead the NEVIS Group as CEO. He currently heads the business unit NEVIS at AdNovum. Consulting and integration services related to NEVIS and the implementation of IAM solutions will remain a strategic business segment at AdNovum.
Marcel Nickler on the realignment: «The market has changed considerably in recent years. We need an agile organization that is closely focused on the market to keep pace with this development. The stronger orientation toward specific target markets, both in the service and in the product business, will help us tap into more market potential. We aim to position AdNovum in our target markets as a premium partner for digitalization solutions that advance our clients' businesses.»
