Change of technical management

That´s it: After 25 long and successfull years with IMS the professional life of Rainer Fackert ended with the 31st of December 2019 and he left into his well-deserved retirement.

„Saying goodbye is not easy for me. I look back on great hours, days, years and joint projects, which have given me many wonderful experiences and a lot of energy.  It was really a great cooperation, from which one or the other friendship has developed. I am grateful for that“, said Rainer Fackert.

A lot has happened in 25 years. The number of employees has increased from 70 to 479. Enterprise buildings have been built, many new agencies have been added and new products have been developed. “We owe this to the commitment and reliability of our employees. Because increasingly complex tasks constantly require our employees to think beyond the limits of their field of work as well as acting accordingly. And they do it with enthusiasm.

Mr. Richard Rak was appointed by the IMS shareholders as his successor. Mr. Rak has worked for IMS for 17 years. As General Manager at IMS Messsysteme Shanghai he was already part of the management board since 2015 with responsibility for the business in China.

“As successor to Mr. Fackert, I share his optimism for a bright future for IMS. He has been an incredible leader and mentor for me and for the entire management team. We will continue to work to manufacture the best products in the world that will delight our customers and make our employees proud of what they do”.
