StatSoft underlines its course of growth and change

As of November 1, Bert von Garrel (51) has taken over the role as Managing Director of StatSoft Europe, based in Hamburg. He thus assumes overall responsibility for the company and will lead StatSoft Europe in the future together with Cosimo Caforio, who has already been working at StatSoft for many years and will continue to be primarily responsible for activities in the Pharma customer area.

StatSoft is one of TIBCO's largest solution partners in the field of Data Science.

With its headquarters in Hamburg and offices in Krakow and Zurich, more than 50 people work on innovative and intelligent solutions in the area of advanced and predictive analytics in both industrial laboratory and production environments as well as in highly regulated sectors such as pharmaceuticals or the energy industry with its high demands on reporting product and process quality and their optimization.

With Bert von Garrel from Hamburg, a manager with an international background and many years of experience in the field of software, consulting, implementation and training as well as the digitalization of business processes takes over the leadership.

Prior to joining StatSoft Europe, Bert von Garrel was Managing Director and European Head of the Canadian company Signifi Solutions, successfully managing their market entry and build-up in Europe. Prior to that, he was Managing Director at the software and consulting company ESN, based near Kiel, responsible for sales, products and projects, and held several executive roles in IT at the E.ON Group and managed E.ON's innovation center for customer solutions.

"Understanding customer needs with their challenges and solving them with the power of data is the topic of our time and is my focus. The opportunity to contribute with StatSoft gives me great satisfaction," said Bert von Garrel. "StatSoft has the methods, the tools but most importantly the people with the knowledge and experience to be able to do that and I am very excited about that," he concludes.

Stephan Schilling, co-owner and himself a long-time managing director of the software solutions house COMLINE says, "I am looking forward to working with Bert on the challenge of further expanding our position as a leader in innovation and competence. We are pleased to have gained in Bert an experienced personality with strong implementation skills."
