Change in the management team of Xovis


With the recruitment of four top-qualified management members, Xovis has succeeded in preparing itself optimally for the next stages of its success story to date. The two founders Christian Studer and Markus Herrli, who have played a decisive role in shaping this story, have decided at this point to seek out new professional challenges, but they will remain with the company as major shareholders.

After a strong growth phase, Xovis has become one of the world's leading people flow solution providers within the Airports and Retail industry. Founded in 2008, Xovis is today a multinational company with 130 employees as well as customers and partners all over the world. Xovis' mission is to enable digitalization and optimization of people flow across a range of use cases by providing data and insights through its IOT sensors and software platform, powered by artificial Intelligence.

This growth is also accompanied by a further development of the management: with Denis Ranke (CFO), Jacco van Achterberg (CSO), Jörg Wagner (CTO) and Florian Eggenschwiler (CPO), the company was able to recruit four top-qualified members for its executive board, which has been led by CEO Andreas Fähndrich since 2019.

The founders Christian Studer and Markus Herrli have contributed significantly to the success of the company and built the foundation of where Xovis stands today. With their innovative thinking, they shaped the company over all the years and led it to success, recently as Product Principal respectively Technology Principal. They founded the company over thirteen years ago, together with David Studer.

The two have now decided to leave the company but will continue to accompany the further growth of Xovis as major shareholders. "It fills us with pride when we look back on the development of the last few years. After all these exciting but also intensive years, we are happy to see the company continue to flourish in good hands", says Christian Studer.
