The demand for hydrogen projects is increasing rapidly. H-TEC SYSTEMS is also experiencing this and is therefore investing massively in growth. To strengthen the management team, Robin von Plettenberg took over as CEO and CSO (Chief Sales Officer) in the first quarter of the year. Frank Zimmermann, as CFO and long-standing member of the management team at H-TEC SYSTEMS, is responsible for the commercial management. Other members of the management team are Marius Zasche (CTO and COO), Dr Dominik Heiß (EVP Strategy & Product) and Dr Joachim Hermann (EVP Innovation).

In his new role at H-TEC SYSTEMS, he will implement the company's growth strategy. "H-TEC SYSTEMS is a pioneer in the field of PEM technology and has laid the foundation for many hydrogen projects that have already been successfully implemented. I am very much looking forward to accompanying H-TEC SYSTEMS on its enormously steep growth course. Our goal is to establish ourselves as one of the top players in the large renewable energy and industrial markets, while remaining close to our customers. With the newly structured management team of experienced experts, we are very well positioned to realize these goals."
