Joachim Trickl to leave QSC

Cologne, July 14th, 2011 - Joachim Trickl, Chief Operating Officer (COO) of QSC AG, will be leaving the company effective August 31, 2011, in order to pursue new challenges. Joachim Trickl joined QSC AG on February 1, 2009, to drive development of the operating and selling activities of the company's three business units, Managed Services, Products and Wholesale. He brought to a successful conclusion QSC AG's rigorous alignment toward the business customer market, expansion of the services portfolio to include offerings of value added services and the company's development into a solutions provider.

"Joachim Trickl played a very crucial role in driving QSC AG's transformation process from a pure network operator to become a provider of ICT services by restructuring selling operations and customer-related processes. Under his leadership, there has been a significant improvement in both the efficiency of selling operations as well as customer satisfaction in all areas. For this he deserves my very sincere thanks," notes QSC AG Chief Executive Officer Dr. Bernd Schlobohm.
