German transportation software developer PTV Group has announced that there will be a change of leadership after the departure of its longstanding CEO, Vincent Kobesen.
After 30 years with the Karlsruhe-based PTV group, Kobesen will leave the company by amicable and mutual agreement on July 31.
PTV’s supervisory board has appointed Peter Overmann as chief technology officer (CTO), effective as of August 1. Until such time that a permanent CEO is appointed, he will assume these duties and serve as interim CEO.
Philipp von Hagen, chairman of PTV’s board said, ‘Vincent Kobesen has actively accompanied and supported the generational transition at PTV. We would like to thank him for his successful work during the past years and his willingness to actively accompany the change of ownership.’
‘With Peter Overmann we have been able to recruit an experienced and visionary technology manager,’ added von Hagen.
