The new division, which is to be personally supervised by Chairman of the Board of Management Dr Dirk Stenkamp, will be responsible for the development and implementation of the Group’s digital and innovation strategy. The new central function brings together all the innovation and digitalisation projects of the business units and the central functions of the TÜV NORD GROUP, both in Germany and abroad.
