Annual Report 2018/19
Dr. Jürgen Eck, co-founder of BRAIN, long-standing CTO and CEO since 1 August 2015, will hand over his mandate as CEO to Adriaan Moelker, who is to head the Group from 1 February 2020. Mr. Moelker will in future be responsible for the enhanced commercialization of the product and project businesses with the aim of leading the company into its next expansion phase.
The company prioritizes the marketing of product-scalable business options in order to implement its growth strategy. These are based on the BRAIN Group’s product offering to industrial customers (B2B business) as well as on products developed together with industrial partners and subsequent license-based marketing.
Tailor-made solutions developed on the basis of R&D performance payments in the context of R&D partnerships comprise a further business option.
A third business option is to develop our own product candidates. Discoveries and insights from these two areas are combined within the new product development pipeline in order to generate our own innovative project ideas. The in-house development of such ideas to market-launch stage lays the foundation for the company’s future organic growth.
Some examples from the three business options can be found in the booklets of the annual report:
