STX Next, IT services and consulting company, has announced the appointment of Markus Tautz as DACH Managing Director. Tautz is driving the company’s growth in the region through the onboarding of Swiss company Squirro.
Squirro is a company that links and analyses data to provide new insights as a basis for decision-making. The partnership underlines STX Next’s sector-specific focus on AI and data engineering in the DACH region, and the company’s ambitions to grow in this area on a global scale.
Tautz’s extensive experience aligns with STX Next’s plans to partner with technological innovators, having worked in the tech industry for over 13 years, including four years as Account Director for software and development sales at Objectivity. As DACH Managing Director, Tautz is responsible for delivering STX Next’s go-to-market strategy across the DACH and European region, while expanding the company’s customer base.
New MD helping accelerate expansion plans
Tautz says: “I am delighted to have the opportunity to raise STX Next’s profile in the DACH region, and early success with Squirro is already accelerating our expansion plans.”
“What really drew me to the company was STX Next’s emphasis on working closely with enterprise clients to deliver high end bespoke software solutions that fit their needs. As Managing Director, I hope to showcase to our brands across the region how the STX Next portfolio can help them optimise costs, create new revenue streams and become more efficient businesses overall.
“Providing cutting-edge software solutions for Europe’s most exciting and progressive technology companies is a priority for STX Next in the coming months and years and the opportunity to work alongside forward-thinking clients and partners, as we are doing with Squirro, is a real source of excitement for the team.”
Ronald Binkofski, CEO of STX Next, adds: “Markus’ experience and track record made him the ideal candidate for the role, and I’m sure he will deliver significant growth for STX Next in a region where we have ambitious expansion plans in the coming months and years.
“Our partnership with Squirro shows that we are building a strong presence across the international markets. With Markus’ support we are certain we can continue to raise our profile and further build our presence alongside Europe’s leading tech innovators.”
