Düsseldorf, 31.01.2022


Management change in the Executive Board of tick-TS AG completed:

  • Gerd Goetz leaves the company's Executive Board at his own request
  • Carsten Schölzki becomes sole member of the Executive Board with a strong management team


As tick Trading Software AG (ISIN: DE000A0LA304, Symbol: TBX) already announced on June 21, 2021, the contract of Executive Board member Gerd Goetz expired on January 31, 2022 and was not extended at his own request.
»After more than ten years as a member of the Supervisory Board and five years as a member of the Executive Board, I will be accompanying tick-TS AG in my new role as a management consultant in the future. I look forward to an equally constructive, successful and cordial collaboration as before,« explains Gerd Goetz on his departure.

Matthias Hocke, Chairman of the Supervisory Board of tick-TS AG: »Gerd Goetz has supported tick-TS since its foundation as a source of advice and impetus. He has accompanied and in part made possible many of the innovations that make up tick-TS's products. Thanks to him, tick-TS AG is excellently positioned today to help shape European securities trading. On behalf of the entire Supervisory Board, I would like to thank Gerd Goetz for his work and the consistent further development of tick-TS AG. I wish him all the best in his professional and private life and look forward to working with him in the future.«

Carsten Schölzki: »A big thank you to Gerd Goetz for the many years of excellent cooperation until the handover. It is a good feeling to be able to continue to rely on him as an inspiring sparring partner. The whole team and I personally wish him all the best and much success for his future.«

With the conversion into a stock corporation, Gerd Goetz became a member of the Supervisory Board of tick-TS AG in 2006 and thus an essential support for the management of the company. After the death of Oliver Wagner, the founder and former CEO of tick-TS AG, Gerd Goetz took over responsibility for the operational business together with Matthias Hocke in 2017 and helped to successfully lead tick-TS out of this difficult period.

In the future, tick-TS will be led by sole director Carsten Schölzki and a strengthened senior management team. In addition to the employees who have already been active for many years, two further top-class executives have been recruited in the form of Wolfgang Erdmann (Product Management) and Sören Ploschke (Finance). While Wolfgang Erdmann, as an industry expert, can draw on more than 25 years of experience in the IT and product environment of HSBC Trinkaus & Burkhardt AG, Sören Ploschke brings diverse know-how and expertise in the field of corporate finance and investor relations thanks to his many years of experience at Ernst & Young and FinLab AG.
