Software services firm Mobica targets automotive sector with new German office
Global software services company Mobica has opened its first office in Germany, as it looks to strengthen its relationships with the country’s automotive OEMs and suppliers.
The new Munich office will predominantly focus on its growing automotive customer base and complements the existing nearshore office portfolio across the UK, US and Poland.
The team will work with OEMs and Tier 1 suppliers across Mobica’s existing customer base and new customers, and includes chief operations officer, Stefan Marxreiter, and Wolfram Ries, vice president of sales for automotive – both previously at software development company
Luxoft. Several additional hires are due to be announced in the coming months.
Stefan Marxreiter said: “The automotive landscape is constantly evolving, particularly with the emergence of technologies such as IoT, AI and 5G which are changing how businesses and consumers view their vehicles.
“It’s such an exciting time for the sector and it’s crucial that we’re positioned at the heart of Germany’s automotive industry. Having a permanent base in Munich will enable us to provide close support to our German customers, collaborate with other players in the sector and deliver more ground-breaking automotive technologies to enable the modern car.”
Simon Wilkinson, chief executive officer of Mobica, added: “Germany is globally recognised for its automotive industry, and is where a significant amount of our growth strategy is focused.
“We have a number of partners and customers in the country already and we hope to announce more in the near future. With the opening of our Munich office and the recruitment of a local senior team to support these relationships, we are demonstrating our strong commitment and investment in the German market and automotive sector.”
