SEAL Systems Management Team



Michael-Koch Management

Michael Koch, Chief Executive Officer (CEO)

“I have taken over the management of the SEAL Systems Group at the beginning of 2017 and consider myself lucky to work with such a promising and likeable company. Particularly important to me as CEO is the unlocking of potential at all levels, as well as further development, both individually and collectively. For me, companies are conscious organisms that can only be comprehended and developed as a whole. What applies to every individual who is intensively concerned with his or her own further development also applies, in my view, to a company: If you work on yourself consistently, you have the chance to realize results that exceed your own expectations by far – and this is exactly what I work for every day with heart and soul together with the entire SEAL Systems team! My vision is to establish SEAL Systems worldwide as the customer’s first choice for Enterprise Output Solutions and to make this wonderful company known as a pioneer of a new working world. SEAL Systems shall always be a company that is in full force and flourishing for the benefit of all stakeholders, while striving for higher things.”

“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 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, Chief Technology Officer (CTO)

“Together with my team, I represent the entire technology of SEAL Systems. We provide the modules from which the product-based solutions of SEAL Systems are created. Our claim is the balancing act between the stability and performance of our products on the one hand and the flexibility and adaptability of our solutions on the other. In this context, cloud and digitalization are the major topics that drive us forward in terms of technology and content. My goal is to combine solid concepts with the latest technology and professional skills in order to achieve sustainable results in the long term. Enthusiasm for technology and customer satisfaction are the drivers behind my and our work. For me, meeting the complexity of requirements with the right mix of technical creativity and conceptual stringency means working in a flow that never gets boring. At the end of the day, there are good products, successful projects and satisfied customers. That is the direction in which I lead the SEAL Systems technical team.”

“I have been working in sales at SEAL Systems AG for almost 15 years. During this time, I was able to gain a lot of experience in national and international project business in various industries through numerous projects. The requirements in sales are different every day and often present me with innovative and interesting challenges. This makes the work very versatile and exciting. With great passion I like to be responsible for the task to help SEAL Systems to become the worldwide number 1 in the output management market.

In cooperation with my colleagues, from all areas, it is my personal claim to provide the customers and partners with a high quality product. The satisfaction of our customers and the economic success of SEAL Systems AG are my top priorities.”

Strauss-Angela-200x300 ManagementAngela Strauß, Chief Financial Officer (CFO) & Chief Human Resources Officers (CHRO)

“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.”
