Changing of the guard on the Supervisory Board of tick-TS AG:
Co-founder Matthias Hocke runs for new chairman
Founded in 2002, tick Trading Software AG, which presented its third consecutive record result in fiscal year 2019/2020, will propose a restructuring of the Supervisory Board to shareholders at the upcoming Annual General Meeting on April 29, 2021.
The long-standing Deputy Chairman of the Supervisory Board and co-founder Ingo Hillen, also founder and CEO of sino AG | High End Brokerage, the major customer and former largest shareholder of tick-TS AG, resigned from his position in December 2020 for personal reasons (Corporate News of 15.12.20).
The current Chairman of the Supervisory Board, Dr. Simon-Alexander Zeidler, is no longer standing for election at his own request because, according to his own information, his commitments as a partner in the law firm Carlswerk make it impossible for him to devote sufficient time and the necessary concentration to his duties as Chairman of the Supervisory Board.
The Executive Board of tick-TS AG sincerely regrets the departure of these gentlemen, without whom tick-TS AG would not exist with its current performance.
»We would like to express our heartfelt thanks to Ingo Hillen for his tireless commitment over almost 20 years, his strategic initiatives in listing the Company on the stock exchange and his irreplaceable advice. He was there when tick-TS was launched and has successfully driven the company forward for many years as a member of the Executive Board and Deputy Chairman of the Supervisory Board. We wish him the same success for the future that he helped to create for tick-TS AG.«
In Dr. Simon-Alexander Zeidler, we are not only losing an unusually competent expert in capital market law, but also a confident Chairman of the Supervisory Board who successfully helped shape the company's fortunes for many years.
»His legal expertise and personal negotiating skills have made him an extremely valued and much-loved advisor on all sides. A very big thank you and our very best wishes for the future accompany him.«
In this situation, the Supervisory Board and the Executive Board of the Company consider it sensible to return to a three-member Supervisory Board. As the sole successor to the departing members, the Supervisory Board proposes Miriam Schäfer to the Annual General Meeting as a new member of the Supervisory Board. She is a proven capital market and compliance expert, member of the International Bar Association and Salaried Partner at law firm Heuking Kühn Lüer Wojtek, Cologne.
The current Supervisory Board member Matthias Hocke, who not only provided significant support to tick-TS in its early years, but also successfully led the company out of this difficult period during the illness and after the death of Oliver Wagner, the founder and former CEO of tick-TS AG, will stand as the new Chairman of the Supervisory Board.
