"I am thankful for the commitment and hard work of Achim Hirz and Juergen Mueller who have recently departed the Company, and I am pleased to welcome Markus Gyssler to Identive in this important new role. Since its acquisition in early 2012, clear synergies have emerged between payment solution and our existing Multicard business, and we believe Markus will help to propel this process forward," stated Ayman S. Ashour, chairman and chief executive officer of Identive. "As we continue to consolidate our various brands under Identive, Michael Ganzera's experience in global communication and deep technological know-how makes him the ideal choice to broaden the awareness and acceptance of the Identive brand in the marketplace."
