proaxia consulting group ag has appointed Susanne Tiedtke as new CFO, effective as of 1 June. After beginning duties on 1 June, as of 1 August 2021 Susanne Tiedtke will assume overall responsibility for financial affairs, human resources, administration and legal affairs, replacing Willy G. Wolf. The previous CFO and co-founder of proaxia will continue to serve the company as a member of the board of directors.
“Identifying the right moment to withdraw from responsibilities as CFO has not been easy. But I am convinced that a good time has now come. proaxia is an excellent position: we are an expanding, profitable company, and we have a fantastic growing team of highly talented people. proaxia is now a solid, mature company, so that I have a good feeling in handing over responsibility to my successor.” (Willy G. Wolf, board member)
“Willy G. Wolf’s decision strongly affects me personally. Since founding proaxia in 2008, amid the financial crisis, the two of us have come out on top after braving some very challenging times. He displayed his professional and personal qualities especially at the moment when we experienced tremendous pressure to make far-reaching decisions. Thanks to his astounding leadership abilities, he steered us through highly challenging situations and played a key role in helping proaxia become an established company. I feel very privileged to work with him.
At the same time, I am very pleased to welcome Susanne Tiedtke as his successor. Susanne Tiedtke has gathered experience in administration and operations while working both in SMEs and major corporations, in Switzerland, Germany as well as in other countries. I have come to know her as a strategic thinker who, while moving forward innovation, never loses sight of the people involved. I am confident that she will fit in well at proaxia and help us continue writing the proaxia success story.”
(Peter Lindtner, proaxia CEO)
