In the role of Chief Technology Innovation Officer (CTIO), the newly appointed Sebastian Schaffrath (37) takes the lead on all technology functions, including spearheading product development and implementing advanced technology strategies and innovative solutions.

“For years LYNX Technik has been renowned for its robust and reliable products and technical innovation. On this basis and philosophy, we are moving forward to develop solutions that will enthuse operators and planning engineers worldwide,” comments Sebastian Schaffrath, CTIO of LYNX Technik. “We have made it our goal to answer the pressing questions arising with IP technology with real solutions instead of buzz words. Therefore, we are leading a creative dialogue with our customers using ‘design thinking’ methods, working closely and efficiently in our agile R&D environment and relying on our strong LYNX team,” continues Sebastian.

 

“We have an exceptionally motivated team, and we are excited to secure and shape the future of this company. The upcoming months will see important adaptions of business processes to further strengthen our operations,” adds Holger Schostak, COO of LYNX Technik.

 

“We would like to take this opportunity on behalf of the LYNX Technik team, to thank co-founder and former CEO, Winfried Deckelmann for his 15 years of leadership and success,” add Schaffrath and Schostak. “Under his guidance LYNX Technik grew from supporting a small customer base to becoming a global technology solutions provider in the broadcast and professional AV market.” Winfried Deckelmann will stay on with the company to support the transition of the new management team.
