Qvest strengthens European business with new management team

Published - 4. May 2022
Cologne, May 4, 2022: Qvest aims to enhance its performance in the media and entertainment sector and boost the development of the entire company group with new appointments in the management team. Effective May 1, 2022, Konstantin Knauf and Jawid Mahmoodzada are responsible for Qvest's European business, particularly in the area of consulting and systems integration. Peter Nöthen, Thomas Müller, Christian Massmann and Christian Boris Hönig will remain focused on the entire Qvest Group with its international investments and subsidiaries.

The company's customers will benefit directly from the reorganization of the Qvest management, particularly in Germany and Europe. As the world's leading systems architect and ICT integrator in the media and entertainment sector, Qvest will be able to offer its exceptionally broad and diversified portfolio of services even faster, more holistically and more comprehensively. These key positions are filled within the Qvest Group by being assigned to two experienced senior managers: Konstantin Knauf and Jawid Mahmoodzada, who will orchestrate all operational project activities of Qvest in Germany and its European subsidiaries.

Konstantin Knauf started his career at the Cologne-based technology company more than 15 years ago and has since assumed management and consulting responsibilities for projects in Germany, Southeast Asia, and Australia, among other markets. Since 2018, Konstantin Knauf has been working as Director Consulting at Qvest. Media and technology expert Jawid Mahmoodzada has been responsible for some of the most complex projects at Qvest, specializing on the media and ICT sector as well as cloud solutions in Europe and Asia for more than ten years. Since 2017, Jawid Mahmoodzada has been Principal for the company's German and international partners and customers.

Effective from May 2022, Konstantin Knauf and Jawid Mahmoodzada are Managing Directors of Qvest GmbH, responsible for the consulting and technology business in Germany and Europe. Christian Boris Hönig completes the management team as Chief Financial Officer and continues to be responsible for the finances of the globally operating Qvest Group in the same function.

Peter Nöthen, CEO of Qvest: "The Qvest GmbH has played a significant role in the development of our company group. To this day, it forms the backbone for our activities and is the hub for the fulfilment of projects in Europe and other major international projects. For Jawid and Konstantin, this step marks another chapter in their personal 'Qvest success story', which makes me particularly happy for them. It is also very positive for us because we can assign experienced managers from our company to these important key positions. Our global partners and customers will benefit from Jawid and Konstantin's hands-on expertise and years of experience in technology transformation in many ways."

The management of the parent Qvest corporate group with its nearly 1,000 employees worldwide will remain the same. Together with Thomas Müller (CTO), Christian Massmann (CSO) and Christian Boris Hönig (CFO), company founder and CEO Peter Nöthen will continuously and sustainably expand Qvest's internationalization and global presence to better serve customer needs that are changing significantly as part of the digital transformation. This includes in particular the expansion of the investment portfolio as well as the further development of the global companies of the Qvest Group. With this focus, the management quartet is consistently driving forward the strategic, technological, and organizational development of the entire corporate group.
