Kai Houben joins Wige Solutions after working for Riedel Communications for more than two decades. He succeeds Ulrich Tacke, who has run the business for the past two years.
Kai was a member of the management team of the Riedel Group and was most recently responsible for the “Managed Technology” division, which he helped to build into a globally active division – in 2019 with record sales in the mid double-digit million range.
He also strategically shaped the international event business, a cornerstone of Riedel, which led to great success. In addition to his exceptional expertise in the broadcast, event and motorsport industry, he has a track record of success at management level – a huge win for Wige Solutions. With all these skills, Kai will take our business to the next level, says Martin Schmahl, Co-Managing Director of Wige Solutions.
In his new role, Kai Houben will be responsible for the strategic direction, continue to pursue the course of growth and expand the company’s presence and cooperation. The top-class customers of Wige Solutions include DTM, Formula E, ABB, DFB, Deutsche Sport Marketing, ADAC, Hockenheim Ring, Cheil and WWP.
“Wige Solutions has been setting international standards for over four decades when it comes to sophisticated concepts for motorsport, live events, hospitality, fan TV and trade fair presence,” says Kai Houben. I am confident that with further innovative solutions and this strong team, we will be able to continue to grow successfully and set new standards.
