Felix Wolf joins the management team at achelos

Commitment to sustainable growth by strengthening strategic partnerships

Paderborn, 24 January 2024 – Felix Wolf is welcomed on board as a further managing director at achelos GmbH in Paderborn. His appointment was confirmed by shareholders at their meeting in December 2023. The manager completes the executive board team comprising Kathrin Asmuth (managing partner) and Thomas Freitag. Since its establishment in 2008, achelos has evolved to become a leading player in the field of cybersecurity, digital identities and software solutions for eSIM management. Wolf brings to the table his experience from a variety of management positions in medium-sized enterprises and at management consultants Roland Berger GmbH. As managing director at achelos his key focus lies in the areas of finance & controlling, corporate development and the Connect/eSIM portfolio.

“Our order pipeline is well-filled and we have got off to a very optimistic start to the new year. In the Connect segment, we are currently experiencing particularly vigorous momentum in the market, an effect which is backed up by the latest market research by our partners Counterpoint Technology Market Research. With our leading SM-DP+ solution* geared to providing eSIM profiles we are eminently well-positioned to offer our telecommunications customers (MNOs and MVNOs) robust solutions for handling the upcoming growth. We were able to win over a range of new customers in the eSIM sector during the course of last year. In 2024, we aim to forge ahead with expanding this positive trend in SM-DP+ and thus play our part in the global success story of eSIM,” elucidates Felix Wolf his expansion course in achelos’ Connect segment.

A further target that Wolf has in its sights is to expand partner management in the area of cybersecurity and digital identities. Plans include strategic partnerships with major consulting companies in the field of technology.

“At the point where classic consulting companies throw in the towel, that’s where achelos takes up the challenge with its profound depth of technical expertise. By cooperating with achelos, consulting companies will be able to significantly expand their portfolio and accompany future projects right up to the implementation stage, including managed services. Particularly where cybersecurity systems such as public key infrastructures are concerned – a field in which we, as a system house, are well-positioned – we envisage excellent market opportunities. We’re standing at the ready with an operational team of over 50 software developers and cybersecurity experts – and demand is high,” observes managing director Wolf delightedly. “achelos has a great team of highly competent people. It’s a pleasure to work with them, and top management is equally intent on working in tandem to achieve sustainable success and strategically develop achelos further,” continues Wolf.

Felix Wolf maintains an international focus. Coming from a background of diverse management functions in medium-sized enterprises, his experience also includes several years as project manager at management consultants Roland Berger, including in Frankfurt am Main and Dubai. He holds a Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration from the Vienna University of Economics and Business and a Master’s degree in International Management (CEMS) from the Stockholm School of Economics and University College Dublin. Hailing originally from the Allgäu region of Germany, his new position entails a move from the Rhine-Main metropolis of Frankfurt to the cybersecurity stronghold of Paderborn.
