(Submit Articles) Balingen, 20. January 2011 Ã¢â‚¬“ On 01.01.2011, as the Director of Global Retail Solutions, Tudor Andronic took over the overall direction for the divisions of hardware development, software development and product management/customer solution centre.
By replacing the management team in the retail division, Bizerba wants to consistently develop its pioneering role as a provider of open, standardised retail IT solutions. With a view to further process and cost benefits for commercial enterprises.
While Peter Laudien-Weidenfeller Ã¢â‚¬“ his trusted colleague of more than 10 years from IBM times Ã¢â‚¬“ manages the activities of the Bizerba sales region worldwide in a matrix function, Tudor Andronic will assume global responsibility for hardware and software development, as well as product management. At the same time, the newly created position of a Director of Global Retail Solutions also includes the management of the Customer Solution Centre.
Forty seven year old Tudor Andronic is a certified engineer (Dipl. Ing) for applied physics, business engineer, Master of Business Administration. His professional background in retail took him from the retail group ZÃƒ¼rich Solutions AG via Migros (where he was responsible for loading systems)Ã‚ to IBM in 1995, where he significantly furthered the development of software concepts for retail as EMEA Software Manager from 1995 to 2003. Before he moved to Bizerba in 2007 to become Business Development Manager Retail, he was also Retail Software Leader and Head of Customer Solutions for five years at Mettler Toledo.
In addition, Tudor Andronic has also played an active role in the ARTS (Association for Retail Technology and Standards) for 10 years, presently as co-chair of the Fresh Item Management and in the Advisory Council of the Retail IBM User Group.
Tudor Andronic is just as familiar with the retail branch from a purely technical perspective as he is from a sales perspective. For him, customer focus is the top priority. "Looking at the business from our customers' perspective means making them trust us. Customers do not need a product but a solution for one of his/her problems and if we understand that, then we are already on the right track to providing the ideal solution. We need to do this by combining quality and technology with sector know-how, advisory skills and services which will make his life easier." Bizerba notably sees growth potential in the area of openness and fresh competence. "Here we are going to emerge as the No. 1 solutions provider along the entire value-added chain."
Bizerba is a leading, worldwide-operating Solutions-provider offering professional system solutions in scale, label, information and food service technologies, in the retail, food industry, producing and logistic segments. Sector-specific hardware and software, high-performance network-compatible management systems as well as a wide selection of labels, consumables and business services ensure transparent control of integrated business processes and high-level availability of Bizerba-specific performance features.
