New Year, New Roles

As of January 1, 2023, two members of the Management Board take on new roles within the CEDES Group. All our solutions for elevators and escalators melt into one new business unit, now led by Jan Giger. Steven Freedman is the new Group CTO.

Next to Elevator & Escalator, our second business unit Entrance Automation is led by Bernd Kagerer since June 2022. It covers our products for industrial door safeguarding, including the VITECTOR by CEDES portfolio. “With these two strong business pillars, we are ideally equipped to serve our customers in both the elevator and the industrial door markets”, says Jan Giger. “We have some game-changing projects in the pipeline this year and we are looking forward to presenting our innovations at the interlift in October. Stay tuned!”

Steven Freedman adds: “I’m excited to continue the long-standing tradition of meaningful innovation at CEDES as we enter the next phase of product digitalization, where the advanced information created by our sensor and control systems helps to enable our customers` IoT visions in addition to meeting our continuing goal of ensuring the safety and comfort of people as they move through the world.”
