One Team – Many Great Ideas!

SEAL Systems Management Team



Michael-Koch Management

Michael Koch, Chairman of the Board

“At the beginning of 2017, I took over the management of the SEAL Systems Group from my father Josef Koch and I consider myself lucky to work with such a promising and friendly company. As CEO, it is particularly important to me to develop potential at all levels, as well as individual and joint further development. For me, companies are living, conscious organisms that can only be understood and developed as a whole. What applies to every individual who deals intensively with issues of personality development also applies to a company in my eyes: Those who consistently work on themselves have the chance to achieve results that far exceed their own expectations. I support and develop this perspective and the applied leadership and management principles derived from it together with my team with a focus on human resources, corporate development and system energetics. My vision is to make SEAL Systems known as a pioneer of a new working environment: A company that is in full power and bloom for the benefit of all involved and always strives for something higher.”

The difference between what we do and what we are capable of doing would suffice to solve most of the world’s problems.

“I am a member of the SEAL Systems family for more than 27 years now. It is fascinating to see how we have been able to adapt to the changed challenges of the market during this time. We have evolved from a provider of plot management and conversion solutions for some special graphic formats to a provider of platforms for enterprise-wide document preparation and distribution. Our solutions and the interesting customer projects we implement with them inspire each and every day anew. We are driven by our motto of being the customer’s first choice. We know that we cannot rest on what we have achieved. We are facing up to technical change so that we can continue to offer best-of-class products tomorrow. In my responsibility for the operational business, I am happy to meet these challenges with our great team.”

Thomas Reusch, Head of Business Units Software Development

I have been working for SEAL Systems for more than 30 years now. As head of software development I and my team take care of maintaining and further developing our technically ambitious, integrative solution platform for our customers. Based on standard products we want to create a basis for the customer to adapt individual solutions to his specific environment. With coordinated products, we offer companies solution components from the areas of output management and conversion on various platforms, such as Citrix, Windows and SAP. With our offerings, we have created a central service that enables companies to perform their tasks uniformly and with high quality. Topics such as digital signature, automatic application of stamps & watermarks and direct publishing complete the range of solutions. Within these product range I see myself as a technical contact person and problem solver for all aspects of “digital paper”. Achieving the best performance in this field is what drives me on every day. My vision is very clear: the changeover to an integrated service offering, which has already been largely completed. This includes not leaving our customers alone with the operation of the software, and also that solutions can be used jointly and thus deployed more efficiently. To put it briefly: my wish is to create ever better structures in order to grow together with our customers.

Thomas Tikwinski, Head of Business Unit Corporate Output Management

Tikwinski_Thomas_2 Management

At SEAL Systems I am responsible for Corporate Output Management, especially product development and innovation. My passion are elegant, durable and efficient solutions for complex technical problems. These solutions are developed by selected small teams of highly qualified experts who are able to analytically understand such problems, design adequate solutions and implement them technically perfect. This would be impossible without the willingness of our employees to become enthusiastic about the complex and multifaceted topic of output management and without the stamina to constantly improve themselves and our solutions. This way would be equally impossible without the right framework conditions and a common vision of how we can best support our customers as a company. Creating these conditions is my task. My goal is to constantly reshape this vision. Leading this team and representing our products is my profession.

MM_2018_016 ManagementMatthias Müller, Sales director

Since 13 years I am working for SEAL Systems AG in the sales department. During this time I was able to gain a lot of experience in national and international project business of various industries by numerous projects. In the year 2011 the department New Business was founded within a restructuring process and I was assigned as manager. Since the summer of 2019 I am sales manager at SEAL Systems and I am proud that the board of directors has given me this confidence. The requirements in sales are different every day and often we are confronted with innovative and interesting challenges. This makes the work versatile and exciting.
In cooperation with my colleagues from all areas at SEAL Systems it is my aim to provide the customers with a high quality product. The satisfaction of our customers and the economic success of the company SEAL Systems AG are my first priority.

In all visions, a stable foundation is needed to pursue and realize them. Due to our continuing success, we at SEAL Systems can build on such a foundation. We have managed to establish a solid numerical basis, well-rehearsed processes and a functional internal administration. This gives us a high level of decision-making freedom and the opportunity to realize what is important to us. For me SEAL Systems represents fair cooperation and equal treatment. This is the cornerstone for a long-term, successful cooperation, internally as well as with customers and suppliers. We create freedom in which each individual can contribute his or her individual strengths. The goal is a colourful, diverse SEAL community in which it is fun to work. For the future I believe there is a great opportunity, but also a challenge in our growing company size and the constantly changing environment. Many areas are rapidly renewing themselves, and I am looking forward to taking part in designing these upcoming changes. The task will be to find our own way – a balance between the proven and new concepts and ideas.
