2 minutes reading time

REMIRA has appointed finance expert Ralph Hartwig as its new CFO with effect from June 1, 2024. This completes the management team of the software provider, which was reorganized at the end of 2023 and consists of CEO Dirk Bingler, Mario Raatz (CSO), Dennis Dreibrodt (COO), Elena Peter (CTO Commerce) and Oliver Jenneskens (CTO Supply Chain). The focus is now on transforming the internationally active software company from a product to a platform provider for AI-based supply chain planning and unified commerce. In addition, the management team wants to further drive growth and company integration within the group. 

The new CFO of REMIRA is no stranger to the industry: Ralph Hartwig has over 15 years of experience as a financial director in various companies. Among other things, he held the position at MATERNA, an internationally active IT service provider headquartered in Dortmund, which is why he is particularly familiar with the Ruhr region. He has also spent around four years on the management boards of Qvest Media and GUS Group (GUS Holding GmbH), where he has already worked successfully with REMIRA CEO Dirk Bingler.

"With Ralph Hartwig as our CFO, we are gaining exactly the right expert and colleague that we need to achieve our strategic goals, given our size and international structure" comments Dirk Bingler, CEO of REMIRA, and continues:

"I have had the opportunity to work with Ralph as a managing director in the past and I greatly appreciate his expertise and positive mindset. The entire management team is looking forward to taking REMIRA's growth and transformation to the next level." 

REMIRA is one of the leading providers of intelligent supply chain and omnichannel commerce solutions for retail, logistics and industry. In recent years, the Dortmund-based software company has grown through various acquisitions and mergers, most recently through the specialist provider of omnichannel commerce software solutions ROQQIO. Hartwig says that the company's expertise is also benefiting it in this area:

"In my previous positions, I have often been involved in the merger of individual units into a single unit. REMIRA is a progressive group of companies with a good market position. Therefore, I am particularly looking forward to working with the management team to shape the company's integration into the group,"

Next step: transformation into a platform provider

With the appointment of the CFO, REMIRA's management team is complete again for the first time since February 2024. In addition to the merger of REMIRA into a single group of companies, Dirk Bingler and Ralph Hartwig, together with the REMIRA management team, will intensively drive forward the transformation into a future-proof platform provider for AI-based supply chain planning and unified commerce.

"By developing into a cloud-based platform provider, we want to generate added value for our customers, especially in terms of the use of AI, data integration, scalability, flexibility and efficiency"

is how Dirk Bingler describes the next step for his company. "Ralph's task as the new CFO will also be to master this transformation step from a business perspective and to further strengthen REMIRA for the future" summarizes Bingler.
