Dear business partners,
After twelve years of successful cooperation, the Delegate Group and Martin Knopp have decided to go their separate ways. As Managing Director and, since 2016, CEO of the Delegate Group, Martin Knopp has shaped the company in recent years and contributed significantly to its excellent development. It is planned that he will continue to be available as a consultant for a limited period of time in order to support a smooth handover and seamless continuation of the ongoing projects.
The operational management as CEO of the Delegate Group will be assumed by Mr. Thomas Frank, who, as one of the founders of Delegate, has also been continuously active in the Board of Directors and as a member of the Supervisory Board in recent years. Mr. Thomas Frank will take over the management of development on an interim basis together with Mr. Johann Maierhofer, also founder and former managing director for development and most recently also active on the supervisory board.
What does the new and previous management say about the changes?
Thomas Frank, founder and new CEO of the Delegate Group: “Martin Knopp was an important part of the company. I greatly appreciate his competence and commitment and would like to thank him for his extraordinary achievements! It is a great pleasure to be back at Delegate and I am very proud of the company’s achievements and look forward to continuing and expanding the successful path with the team and our customers”.
Martin Knopp, former Managing Director and CEO of Delegate Group: “My time at Delegate is an important part of my professional career and I am proud of what I have achieved together with the team. Above all, the team spirit and the extraordinarily good cooperation within the entire team, but especially with my colleague Markus Gruber, have given me great pleasure in addition to the technical challenges in implementing sophisticated functionalities for our customers. I would like to thank all employees, all customers and business partners and our shareholders and supervisory board members for the time spent together and the good cooperation!
Markus Gruber, Managing Director of Delegate Technology GmbH: “As a colleague of the Managing Director, I would like to express my special thanks to Martin Knopp for his determination and collegiality, and the extraordinary mutual trust between us! By working together with him professionally, we were able to build a great team and expand the company’s market-leading role to its current strength. His input on processes and product development has been instrumental in leading the company to its current size.
