Supervisory Board of the week: Oliver Kaltner (Orderbird)

Oliver Kaltner

The POS system manufacturer Orderbird has engaged a top-class chairman of the supervisory board: Former Leica and Vectron CEO Oliver Kaltner (50) replaces Carlo Kölzer, full-time IT manager at Deutsche Börse Group, according to an announcement in the Handelsblatt. Kölzer remains a simple member of the Supervisory Board, which, according to the company, also includes Metro manager Kay Schwabedal, venture capital specialist Klaus Schieble and the former head of payment service provider Concardis, Markus Mosen.

Experienced supervisory board chairman, strong financial injection

The new Chief Controller Kaltner is already represented in several supervisory bodies, such as the consumer electronics manufacturer Loewe and the IEG Investment Banking Group. As former boss of the competitor Vectron he brings extensive experience in the business with POS systems from which Orderbird wants to profit. The conditions for further growth are certainly right: The company, which was founded in 2011 and currently employs 110 people, will receive several million euros in the course of a further round of financing – among others from the existing investors Digitalplus and Carsten Maschmeyer’s investment vehicle Alstin.
