August 12, 2021: For the record, battery testing firm Digatron on July 1 appointed Holger Driesch as managing director and CEO, taking over from Kevin Campbell, who has taken on another senior executive position at group level.
Driesch joined Digatron last December as chief technical officer, and will work alongside the other managing directors, Stefan Rungen and Dieter Brockel.
Driesch has worked for nearly a quarter of a century in development, engineering, R&D and project management, and has an academic background in electrical engineering and micro-electronics.
His career has included development management positions at mechanical engineering firm Bertrandt, SOTEC Software and Forschner, the product development company.
Digatron founder and chairman Rolf Beckers said Driesch had ‘brought a wave of change’ in Digatron in the seven months he has been with the company.
“Looking further ahead to the extensive opportunities in the market, his new role will support steering the company products and solutions to achieve maximum growth and establish Digatron as a globally dominant company with a range of innovative products,” said Beckers.
“We have great capability in the market and Digatron is already an established brand in the battery industry,” said Driesch.
“Building further on our success is a challenge I accept with determination and fierce ambition for the firm. I am determined to continue Digatron’s momentum leading to new heights.”
