Simon Hohenadl joins the team in a newly-created role of Chief Technology Officer

ClimatePartner is taking its digital solution development work to a new level. Following the massive expansion of the company’s IT and product development teams in June this year, the new CTO Simon Hohenadl brings in additional competence and expertise. He will lead ClimatePartner’s product development work and, through further digitalization of the service portfolio, make it even easier for companies to take action on climate change.

Simon Hohenadl has several years of experience in setting up and managing digital product development teams at international companies. Before joining ClimatePartner, he led software development teams at AutoScout24 and helped to set up their new development location in Barcelona. At ClimatePartner he will lead the Technology and Product divisions as well as Digital Solutions and IT Support departments. His areas of responsibility will also include efficiency enhancement, information security and robustness.

Tristan A. Foerster, Managing Director of ClimatePartner: "By further developing our services, we want to make it even easier for companies to understand their impact on climate, to reduce and offset this impact and ultimately to become climate-neutral. With Simon Hohenadl, we are delighted to have gained an experienced expert who can demonstrate first-class competence in product development and in setting up and managing appropriate teams. His work will help us to make even faster progress towards our goals".

The expansion of the digital solution development capacity is of strategic importance for ClimatePartner. Earlier this year the technology and product teams were joined by a number of experienced software architects, front-end and back-end developers, DevOps engineers, UX designers and business intelligence experts. Their key areas of work include extended interface support with a modern API first approach, increased automation and digitalization of business processes, cloud migration and supply chain management as well as compliance with international requirements.
