TAKKT completes Management Board and starts development of the Web-focused Commerce segment

Stuttgart, Germany, May 13, 2020. In today's meeting, the Supervisory Board appointed Tobias Flaitz to the Management Board of TAKKT AG with effect from June 1, 2020. He will be responsible for the formation and the further development of the Web-focused Commerce segment. Flaitz has many years of expertise with digital business models and was CEO of SEDO until 2019.

TAKKT has taken another step forward in implementing the organizational realignment "TAKKT 4.0". One of the elements of TAKKT 4.0 is the focus on the two business models Omnichannel Commerce and Web-focused Commerce. Both segments will operate independently and will be managed by a member of the TAKKT Management Board. While Heiko Hegwein took over responsibility for the Omnichannel Commerce segment, TAKKT was looking to find another Management Board member for the management of the Web-focused Commerce segment to complete the four-member board.

With Tobias Flaitz (49) TAKKT has gained an experienced manager who will be responsible for the development of the Web-focused Commerce segment on the TAKKT Management Board from June onwards. The appointment will initially be for three years. Tobias Flaitz began his career at the strategy consultancies Accenture and Booz Allen Hamilton, then worked in various positions at Burda and from 2012 to 2019 was CEO and board member at SEDO, the global market leader in domain name trading.

"With his many years of international experience with digital business models, Tobias Flaitz is a very good choice to lead the Web-focused Commerce segment. This strengthening of the board will enable us to take the next important step in the implementation of TAKKT 4.0 already from June onwards," comments TAKKT CEO Felix Zimmermann.
