Leipzig, 02/02/2022. ALVARA | Digital Solutions continues to look towards the “future”. It is part of the strategy behind this leading European provider of cash logistic and POS software solutions to strengthen the companies in the group on their path to success in the long term. To this end, the decision has been made to expand the management team at IT Kompetenz Gesellschaft für innovative Informationstechnologie mbH: Robert Wolf was appointed as a second Managing Director from February 1st 2022. From now on, both Managing Directors Matthias Schick and Robert Wolf will manage IT Kompetenz together.

“It’s a big win for IT Kompetenz to have a second Managing Director with industry experience such as Robert Wolf,” said Matthias Schick, Managing Director at IT Kompetenz. “Together, we’ll continue the company’s existing success and develop innovative solutions for cash logistics with ALVARA | Digital Solutions within the company group.”

Having studied Business Administration (focusing on banking and finance), Robert Wolf brings with him ten years of industry experience after many years leading the Project Management and Service departments at ALVARA. Originally from Leipzig, he has been an authorized signatory of ALVARA Digital Solutions GmbH since 2020.  As a member of the management team, he was able to deepen his experience in people management, strategy, sales and developing business processes. He also has an exceptional network across the cash industry.

“I’m very much looking forward to this new responsibility and working together with the team at IT Kompetenz,” says Robert Wolf. “We will continue to develop our products with ability, passion and determination within the context of the wider group strategy. The satisfaction of our customers is always our focus.”

As Managing Director of IT Kompetenz, Robert Wolf will be taking responsibility for strategic matters, customer support, representation and business. Matthias Schick will continue to be responsible for products and the operative side of software development as the technical director. Both are dedicated to business development and innovation management at group level.

“Together, we want to impress with excellent customer proximity, a broad range of services and attractive products,” says Matthias Schick. “We will also continue with IT Kompetenz’s futureproof position on the market, rising to the challenges of the future.”

“I’m convinced that we will bolster existing competences and gain new ones through close collaboration,” said Robert Wolf. “One significant prerequisite is further personal, technological and service-based intertwining of the individual sister companies within the company group. One initial milestone in this success strategy is setting up the single point of service contact at the ALVARA headquarters in Leipzig. I’m certain that longstanding Managing Director Matthias Schick and I will make an effective management team and lead IT Kompetenz into a successful future.”

IT Kompetenz has been turning heads with its development of innovative, tried-and-tested, secure software systems for cash logistics for many years now. The customers of this ALVARA | Digital Solutions subsidiary benefit from solutions spanning cash and valuables transport, money processing, ATM services and the direct supply of materials and cash.
