Effective July 1, 2024 Reinhard Grimm will take over the role of executive vice president ATM Civil from Hannu Juurakko, who is to retire

In his new role, Reinhard Grimm will be responsible for the worldwide ATM civil business of the Frequentis Group.

Currently managing director of Frequentis Germany, Grimm has a 25-year track record in the IT and telecommunications industry. He has substantial international experience, having worked for Siemens Convergence Creators in Vienna, Los Angeles, and Hamburg for several years. In the US, Grimm built up a local subsidiary dealing with Over The Top (OTT) Multimedia Solutions as well as LTE technology for local telecom providers.

Hannu Juurakko has been instrumental in the transformation of our ATM business, mainly developing ATM to a growing supplier with a complete portfolio and uniting the business unit into one unified ATM organisation. The Frequentis Executive Board would like to thank Hannu for his great commitment and wish him all the best for his well-deserved retirement,” said Norbert Haslacher, CEO Frequentis.

“Reinhard Grimm brings both international experience and a profound Frequentis background, along with developing and managing new business. I would like to welcome Reinhard to his new role and wish him every success.”
