Starting in 2020, the trade magazine Markt&Technik called on its readers to take part online in the election of the "Manager of the Year 2020". Managers from various companies were eligible to vote in different categories such as electromechanics, semiconductors, or AI & robotics. Matthias Fricke was nominated in the category Embedded Systems and has now been awarded.
Matthias Fricke thanks Markt&Technik for the nomination and all readers who voted for him. In particular, he expresses his gratitude to all employees of Garz & Fricke as well as to the company co-founder Manfred Garz, without whom this award would not be possible. For him, the nomination reflects the great performance of all colleagues not only in the last, but in the many years of Garz & Fricke.
For Matthias Fricke, this special award is also a reward for the past year, which was characterized by exciting and challenging developments: the new building and relocation into our company headquarters in Hamburg-Harburg and the expansion of the group of companies around Garz & Fricke now including e-GITS and Keith & Koep, with which we can offer further specialists for the topics System on Modules and application development for HMIs from one source.
Normally, the Manager of the Year award is presented at a ceremony during the Markt&Technik top-level meeting in May. Due to the current situation around the COVID pandemic, the organizer plans to reschedule the event towards the end of the year. However, the Markt&Technik editorial team has come up with something special in advance to introduce the prize winners. You can find an online report of this year’s winners here.
"A great honor and an incentive to continue on our chosen path. Thank you!"
