Munich, 24 April 2023 - The Supervisory Board of NFON AG has unanimously appointed Mr Patrik Heider as Chief Executive Officer of NFON AG with effect from 15 May 2023.

In this role, Patrik Heider will define the further strategic direction of NFON and lead the company into the next phase of growth and innovation.
"With Patrik Heider, we have been able to gain a highly experienced and international manager with exceptional leadership qualities as CEO. Added to this is his excellent capital market experience, which is essential for the further development of NFON," says Rainer Koppitz, Chairman of the Supervisory Board of NFON AG. "As CEO of Nemetschek SE, he was able to successfully lead the company from the Prime Standard to the MDax as well as TecDax within only six years. This unique success story was achieved through strong organic growth, targeted strategic acquisitions and a disproportionate increase in profitability. In the process, Heider also placed a strong focus on the topic of employee development and was able to win numerous awards with the company for this, including the Bavaria Best 50 Award or the Deloitte Best Managed Companies Award."
"I am looking forward to actively shaping the future of NFON together with the great employees. The company has developed into the European market leader in a short period of time and is located in a very attractive, growth-oriented market of integrated communication solutions," Patrik Heider reports on his move.
Patrik Heider (49) was most recently CEO of the software companies Thinkproject and riskmethods. Before that, he was responsible for the extremely successful development of Nemetschek SE as Spokesman of the Board and CFOO and earned an excellent reputation in the international capital market.

He is married and has 2 children.
The current CEO, Dr. Klaus von Rottkay, will ensure an optimal and trustful transfer of business to Patrik Heider until the end of his appointment to the Executive Board on 30 November 2023.
