Roland Wittmann leaves Goldbach

After more than 7 years, Roland Wittmann has decided to step down as Chief Strategy Officer at Goldbach as of June 2022 and pursue new career paths.

Since Roland Wittmann joined Goldbach in June 2014, a lot has changed, also thanks to his work. In his role as Chief Strategy Officer, Roland Wittmann was closely involved in the integration of Goldbach into the TX Group, where he was responsible for the growth markets of Germany and Austria as well as the business development of the Goldbach Group.

Roland Wittmann: "It was a fantastic time at Goldbach and I also leave the company with some pride. With a great team, we have successfully implemented extremely exciting projects in the European media industry. Goldbach as part of the TX Group is now well positioned to usher in a new era of profitable growth. Personally, I would like to venture into something new once again, even if I don't have any concrete plans for it yet."

Before joining Goldbach, he was responsible for corporate development at the former Tamedia between 2008 and 2014. He reported directly to CEOs Martin Kall and subsequently Christoph Tonini.

After graduating in business administration from the University of Zurich in 2000, Roland Wittmann worked for the strategy consultancy Roland Berger and was Head of Strategic Planning at SBB Passenger Traffic before joining Tamedia.

Michi Frank, CEO Goldbach: "Roland Wittmann has contributed a lot to making Goldbach what it is today. Especially in the course of the reorganization within the TX Group, Roland Wittmann played a leading role. With his strategic thinking and vision on major projects, he has made an important contribution and driven the company forward on many issues. I would like to thank Roland for his valuable contribution over the past years and wish him only the best in his professional and private life."

The Board of Directors and the Executive Board of Goldbach thank Roland Wittmann for his great commitment. The succession plan will be announced at the appropriate time.
