Kusch emphasises: “In order to make our company fit for the future, we need a strong board with outstanding leadership and technical expertise. Marc is a strong personality and has developed into a true entrepreneur in recent years. I am very pleased to have him by my side in the future and to continue to move avodaq forward with him.”
Born in the Pfalz region, he graduated in 2008 with a degree in industrial engineering from the University of Applied Sciences Kaiserslautern. Since 2021, he has also been pursuing an Executive MBA in Business & IT at the Technical University of Munich and the University of St. Gallen. He obtained further qualifications in the context of project/service management and Cisco certifications.
In 2009, Marc Schmidt started his career at avodaq AG as an IT consultant. From 2010, he was responsible for the service business. During this time, he built up the Managed Service department and significantly increased sales by strategically acquiring new customers. Under his leadership, the software development division was created, which enabled the further automation of the company’s own business processes and solutions.
Schmidt has been reporting to the executive board since 2017 and was named authorised signatory two years later. Since then, he has been responsible for the technical strategy with his team. During this time, he achieved, among other things, the portfolio expansion in today’s core architectures. Through a consistent focus on established, future-oriented technologies, avodaq has developed into a digitalisation expert. Under his leadership, the technical areas have achieved significant growth and act as a reliable partner for customers.
“Over the past 14 years, I have been able to witness the growth and development of avodaq and have been actively involved in shaping it as part of the management team for the past 6 years. The various stages of my career have prepared me perfectly for the new role. I am very much looking forward to my tasks and to implementing future projects together with the team.” Marc Schmidt, COO of avodaq AG
