Gude Systems, a specialist in AV-focused power supply and monitoring solutions, announces this month the expansion of its management team: The company’s founder, Dr. Michael Gude, is appointing Andreas Böttcher and Philipp Gude to the company’s management team effective June 1, 2022.

Andreas Böttcher has been with the company for over 20 years and is responsible for the company’s product development. With his technical expertise, he has played a key role in shaping the expansion of the product portfolio and successfully driving forward technological development. As the new Managing Director, he is responsible for the Technology division (CTO).

Philipp Gude joined the Gude Systems sales team three years ago after working as a sales engineer for a large IT system house. The son of the founder has realigned the company’s sales strategy and made the products known in the Audio/Video market within a short time: increasing sales and the expansion of the sales network in EMEA, USA and Australia are testimony to his sales expertise and now provide him with the position of Managing Director Sales (CSO).

“With this double strike, the company has a lucky hit,” comments CEO Dr. Michael Gude. “Both colleagues have rendered outstanding services to the company with their professional competencies and visionary qualities, and have contributed significantly to the success of the business. And they both bring exactly what a future-oriented company needs: first-class reliable development and first-class sympathetic sales. Gude’s management is thus ideally positioned for the future in terms of personnel and strategy.”
