Strategic future analysts. 20. August 2019 Martina Trinkel-Rudman and Daniel Pressl are joining the interdisciplinary Business Development Team headed by CTO Wolfgang Warum. The objective of Business Development is to bring about innovation and to constantly rethink your own business. So today, business development is an area in need of discoverer types: people who push forward-thinking solutions for customers through new ideas and partnerships, thus helping to tap into new markets. This is precisely the task Martina Trinkel-Rudman and Daniel Pressl took on themselves when they recently joined the WILD Group‘s Business Development Team. „WILD is already providing support to the major players and highflyers in today‘s high-tech world. We shall continue to do so in the future. We are following the path of our service and technology roadmaps with our eyes open and thinking outside the box, so we will succeed by venturing into new technology fields and markets together with our customers“, Daniel Pressl assures. As a doctoral candidate at the Department of Materials Science and Engineering of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, he worked and researched in the USA and also expanded his scope of knowledge by participating in several international projects. After returning to Europe, he took part in worldwide frontrunner projects in research, development and industry in recent years. The latest focus of the 38-year old was on product development and innovation and quality management. „I‘ve known the WILD Group for a long time now and I have always been impressed by their innovative solution competence. Now I am looking forward to contributing the spirit that comes with the experience from working abroad and to steering the requirements of our customers and my ideas into structured paths so as to embark on new approaches together with my colleagues.“ Martina Trinkel-Rudman, too, will be contributing international experience to the team. The chemical scientist was, among other things, responsible for the overall Management of EU research projects with partner companies from the fields of medical technology, biosensorics, and nanotechnology at Joanneum Research, an institute which has been engaging in top research for the last 50 years. Her most recent work involved consulting and project management in Namibia. What fascinates Trinkel-Rudman about her new task at WILD Business Development is the diversity and complexity of the products created here. „I see the greatest strength of the WILD Group especially in this bandwidth of know-how, which can be extended to the most diverse segments and to new customers“, says the 48-year old. As part of the six-person Business Development Team, Martina Trinkel-Rudman and Daniel Pressel will be immediately in charge of trend scouting, acquisition of new customers and organisation of knowledge transfer.
