Werner Obermann is the new head of trade fair solutions – the FairMate team has been strengthened
Cologne, May 31, 2016 – Werner Obermann joined the Cologne-based software company dimedis at the beginning of 2015 as the new product manager. Now he is the new head of trade fair solutions. He is taking on these duties with immediate effect and is responsible for a strengthened FairMate team. Werner Obermann reports directly to the Managing Director, Wilhelm Halling. The previous head of department Klaus Friedrich Meier has left the company.
Werner Obermann has extensive experience as a specialist and manager in IT project and service management. Before joining dimedis, the graduate engineer spent almost 15 years at Westdeutschen Rundfunk (WDR), a German public-broadcasting institution. He was responsible for large IT projects for the media industry in the roles of team leader, project manager and IT safety officer. Before that Mr. Obermann had already gained ten years experience in the IT industry. From 1994 to 1999 Mr. Obermann worked for MWM Software & Beratung as a software designer and application consultant. As head of trade fair solutions at dimedis, from now on Werner Obermann will lead the strengthened FairMate team and be responsible for the FairMate project teams that deal with the customers Koelnmesse, Messe Düsseldorf, Westfalenhallen Dortmund, Reed Exhibitions Deutschland, Stockholmsmässan and Hamburg Messe und Congress. He is also responsible for the further development of the FairMate product group with the objective of expanding the tool and the functionality of the FairMate products and services, strengthening the relationships with the existing customers and actively addressing new target groups. Werner Obermann is looking forward to the new challenge at dimedis: "With FairMate, dimedis has definitively set a milestone in recent years for entrance and visitor management at trade fairs and events. In my role as product manager I was responsible for the introduction of FairMate at Koelnmesse and thus learnt a lot about the challenges faced by entrance and visitor management systems in the trade fair industry. Based on my previous experience, I am really looking forward to making a contribution to the further development of the product and further expanding the "trade fair solutions" business segment."
