SCHEMA Executive Management Team

Nobuyoshi Shimada

Managing Director SCHEMA Systems, Commercial Director

“Success breeds success. Our customers consistently lead the market in their areas. They look for solutions, not products, and put concepts before conditions. Because our customers are successful, we’re successful.”

Sebastian Göttel

Director Sales and Marketing

“In our target markets, selling and consulting is almost the same thing. We want to implement projects successfully, so we sell with this goal in mind.”

Dr. Florian Irmert

Director Development

“Our customers work for professional companies continuously pursuing improvement. We have the suitable tools and the experience to support this endeavor efficiently and reliably. It is our aim to delivery quality and to delight our customers.“

Johannes Görz

Director Solutions

“Project success is not accidental. 50% is due to systematic processes and structured approach. The other 50% are communication and understanding the customer. We leave nothing to chance.“

Stefan Freisler

Managing Director

“The ‘industrialization’ of text production for complex documents will continue to occupy us for the next years. Challenge us! I think we’ve gathered a lot of experience in the last 20 years.”

Marcus Kesseler

Managing Director

“Modern midsized editorial offices can already have millions of text and media modules in their system. Apart from performance and scalability, ergonomics is our main challenge. The excellent design and well thought-out user interface of SCHEMA ST4 makes creating, managing, and producing complex documents simple again.”
