iPoint is pleased to announce the hiring of two new key senior executives to support the founder and CEO Joerg Walden as additional Managing Directors in accelerating the growth: Thomas Diezmann, serving as Chief Financial Officer (CFO), and Peter Schmidt, serving as Chief Revenue Officer (CRO).
With these two appointments, iPoint is on course to implement further growth plans. After iPoint’s 20-year owner-driven journey, the Danish private equity investor GRO Capital A/S recently became a shareholder of iPoint, adding capital and experience to accelerate growth globally, further strengthen product innovation, enhance sales and marketing efforts, continue to expand iPoint’s strong position in Europe, and build greater depth in the North American and Asian markets. The two new additions to iPoint’s executive leadership team will solidify the company’s ambitions and opportunities to become the leading platform provider for the Circular Economy, which has proven to be an important step towards a sustainable future for all of iPoint’s customers.
“I am very excited to welcome these two outstanding professionals to the iPoint family”, states Joerg Walden. “Both Thomas and Peter are accomplished leaders with an impressive track record of scaling business in the software industry on an international level, and both are very mission-driven. Their vast experience, skills, and expertise will support us in achieving our ambitious goals, and I’m thrilled to have them on board as we embark on the next step of our growth journey to transform iPoint’s vision of building an integrated digital platform for the Circular Economy into a long-term success story.“
Thomas Diezmann, iPoint’s new CFO, has more than 25 years of experience in scaling business in the Software as a Service (SaaS) industry as well as the media, manufacturing, and retail sector. From 2010 to 2019, Diezmann worked for Episerver GmbH (former optivo GmbH), most recently as Managing Director CFO.
Peter Schmidt, iPoint’s new CRO, has 25 years of experience building high-performance teams that deliver customer success and rapid growth on an international scale. In his previous position at In Mind Cloud, he was responsible for global sales and field operations.
