eurodata appoints Dr. Dirk Goldner to its executive board

Executive manager of ETL Group to be responsible for eurodata data centre and software development divisions

The Saarbrücken-based IT manufacturer has extended its executive board by welcoming Dr. Goldner. Dr. Goldner has a doctorate in physics and over 20 years experience in various management positions in the IT and communications sector.

With immediate effect, Dr. Goldner will be responsible at eurodata as an executive director for the software development of commercial applications such as edrewe, edlohn and the client solutions, and for the data centre with its IT services, site reliability engineering etc. Since 2017, as an executive manager at the ETL Group, the market leader in tax advice, Dr. Goldner has been in charge of IT for the whole group. Before that, he held various positions in reputable companies and corporate groups.

Having completed his studies and obtained his doctorate, Dr. Goldner first worked at IBM as an IT architect and system engineer. Later he worked as an IT architect and consultant at Computacenter and head of system development at Douglas. In 2015 he became vice-president of the IT Factory at Materna and made an important contribution there in the areas of cloud computing and IT consulting before moving to ETL in 2017.

Dieter Leinen, who has been chairman of eurodata AG for many years, is pleased about this new development: “Dr. Goldner is a valuable addition to our company. He knows his way around very well indeed, not only in the IT sector, but in tax advice too. He also has excellent contacts and is sure to give our business some interesting impulses.”

Dr. Dirk Goldner says: “In the context of my work as an executive manager at the ETL Group, I have borne responsibility for the IT of the whole group, and that has already given me the opportunity to get to know and appreciate eurodata in the last few years. I’m looking forward to being able to press ahead with digitalisation together with my development team. These days, issues such as artificial intelligence and machine learning give us possibilities that are simply immense. With them, we will be able to give our solutions even greater efficacy.”

Dr. Goldner was born in 1967. He is married and has two children. When time permits, he devotes himself to his hobbies: clay pigeon shooting, motorcycling, flying drones, and jogging.
