Due, among other things, to the great market success as well as the very good growth prospects in the car sharing and rental market, the Liechtenstein-based Group subsidiary GlobalmatiX AG has now founded a subsidiary in Germany, GlobalmatiX GmbH. With 3.4 million car sharing customers, more than 30,000 car sharing vehicles and around 260,000 rental vehicles, Germany offers enormous potential for telematics provider GlobalmatiX. Softing AG Group is taking this step to set the course for the digital future and be present in Germany, technologically one of the most important markets for telematics solutions. The new sales company will be headed up by Timm Burmeister who has more than 18 years of experience in the field of shared mobility and rental with market leaders in the industry.

Timm Burmeister is coming to GlobalmatiX from Sixt where he was Executive Director International Sales Development, responsible for the international acquisition of new customers for the B2B channels. “We would like to welcome Timm Burmeister to the team and to his new position. He is very well connected in the mobility industry and will help to successfully drive forward the strategies of GlobalmatiX,” says Dr. Wolfgang Trier, Chairman of the Board of Softing AG.

“I am very much looking forward to the new challenge and, together with my colleagues, to driving forward the pioneering technology GlobalmatiX offers. The opportunity to get diagnostic data, position data, minor damage and accident analysis with appraisal of the damage as well as keyless door opening from a single hardware product is absolutely compelling,” says Timm Burmeister.
