Next level internationalization


Aachen, December 05, 2018—LANCOM Systems has appointed Michael Grundl as Vice President Sales International.

The 47-year-old graduate engineer in electrical engineering has worked in various sales positions for telecommunications and IT companies for over 25 years. In the past he has demonstrated his expertise in cooperation with partners from Germany and overseas at Siemens AG, Nortel Networks and Avaya, at CMS IT Consulting, and most recently at Extreme Networks.


According to Stefan Herrlich, Managing Director at LANCOM Systems “With Michael Grundl, we are gaining a first-class sales and network professional. His contacts and experience will help LANCOM to drive forward our internationalization even more effectively. This will further strengthen our position in the international market and, with our close-knit, global network of partners, we will be even closer to our international customers and partners.”
