With Bernd Heinrichs, Wandelbots has succeeded in making an important strategic addition to the company’s management team. Bernd has held numerous positions in his almost thirty-year career and has always pursued one key goal: establishing sustainable revenue growth, whether through focused sales work (direct or indirect), M&A activities or co-innovation with customers and partners. For example, as one of Cisco’s first employees in Germany, Bernd, who holds a PhD in computer science, succeeded in launching a rapid business development and partnership with one of Cisco’s largest global customers, Deutsche Telekom. Most recently, Bernd was Executive Vice President & Chief Digital Officer of the Mobility Solutions division at Bosch. 

Completion of the management board 

At Wandelbots, Bernd will be responsible for Marketing, Sales and the New Business Development unit. He becomes part of the Management Board from October 1, 2021, and will succeed Martin Wanitschke in this position. Martin had additionally been responsible for this newly created position on an interim basis and will return to be Chief of Staff in the future. In addition to Tobias Pfeiffer, who joined Wandelbots on June 1, 2021 as Executive Vice President of Engineering with years of expertise in similar roles at Microsoft and Amazon Web Services (AWS), the Management Board of Wandelbots is now complete. The board consists of Christian Piechnick (CEO), Jan Falkenberg (CTO), Rüdiger Henke (COO), Bernd Heinrichs (CGO), and Tobias Pfeifer (Exec. VP Engineering).

“I’m excited to jump on THE speedboat that allows not only software and robotics professionals but any user to program robots: Wandelbots. Flexibility, increased efficiency, and incomparable implementation acceleration by using the Wandelbots no-code platform are the success criteria that attracted me to come on board.”
