tick-TS AG

Düsseldorf, den 21.06.2021


After realignment of the Supervisory Board:

Diversification of the management of tick-TS AG


After the Annual General Meeting of tick-Trading Software AG (tick-TS AG) streamlined the company's Supervisory Board on April 29, 2021 (PM of April 27, 2021), the company's operational management level is now also being restructured for future requirements and opportunities.


In view of the dynamic growth of the company and the rapid technological leaps in the financial industry, it appears necessary to the Supervisory Board and the Management Board to diversify the management level. Thus, as of February 1, 2022, Carsten Schölzki will take over as sole CEO the task of assembling and leading a broad-based team of experts with a view to future challenges, some of whom are proven performers and some of whom are newcomers.


»The model of a single head with a team of experts increases management competence throughout the company, saves redundant coordination processes and makes tick-TS AG much more powerful overall in the coming years«, comments CEO Carsten Schölzki on the new management structure.


Long-standing department heads are thus given more development opportunities, are additionally motivated by management tasks, and tick-TS AG secures further opportunities to recruit sought-after specialists on the market. A strategically experienced Financial Officer has already been found, while a competent Product Officer/Business Developer is still being sought.


The contract of Executive Board member Gerd Goetz expires on January 31, 2022 and will not be extended at his own request. »The past four and a half years as a member of the Executive Board of tick-TS AG have been an exciting challenge for me and an extremely successful time for the company. I am now looking forward to taking the company into a new phase of development through the initiated change process together with my colleague Carsten Schölzki.«


Meanwhile, CEO Carsten Schölzki, who has been in office since January 2020, has extended his contract until February 28, 2026, and will lead the »Future« team as sole member of the Executive Board following the departure of Gerd Goetz. He will be assisted not only by the company's proven professionals, but also by a sparring partner with entrepreneurial and technical expertise in the person of founder and Supervisory Board Chairman Matthias Hocke.


»Over the past two years, Carsten Schölzki has admirably fulfilled the great expectations of the Supervisory Board and the Board of Management and earned the trust of customers, shareholders and employees without reservation,« said Matthias Hocke, Chairman of the Supervisory Board. »I am absolutely convinced that he will lead the team to new successes.«
