Herrmann's the man at Magna


Broadcast and telecommunications equipment and services provider Magna Systems and Engineering has appointed Heinz Herrmann as its group CEO.

"Heinz's appointment is a real coup for Magna Systems and Engineering," said executive chairman Robert Clemesha (pictured, second from left).

"As the broadcast and telecoms worlds converge, there are not many CEOs with experience in both industries and a track record in strategy as well as execution. I'm delighted to say that Heinz is one of that rare breed.

"We need an energetic, experienced leader like Heinz to maintain high customer satisfaction while we're expanding regionally and broadening our solutions capabilities.

"His understanding of our key converging industries will shape our strategy and his track record in execution will drive the company forward across Asia Pac."

Herrmann (pictured, second from right) previously held senior roles at companies including SingTel Optus, Telecom NZ and Siemens.

"Magna's agility to change with their customers has been a key factor in keeping them at the forefront of technology. I am humbled by the opportunity to lead Magna, building on this ethos and further expanding our solutions capabilities across Asia Pacific," said Herrmann.
