Ralf Ebbinghaus CEO of Swyx

We have the ideal portfolio to meet both the future software and hardware demands of the market.

- Ralf Ebbinghaus takes over as CEO

London, UK, 26th March 2013 - From 1st April , founder and board member Dr. Ralf Ebbinghaus will become CEO of Swyx Solutions AG. He replaces current CEO Dr. Wolfgang Schroeder, the 67 year old founding father of the Dortmund based unified communications specialist, who will initially stay as a member of the Executive Board, until entering full retirement at the end of June.

Since the early days of Swyx

Swyx founders Schroeder and Ebbinghaus commented jointly: "In 1999 we had a vision to replace the classic hardware based phone system with a software based VoIP solution. This was the first bold and visionary step towards the creation of Swyx"

After completing a PhD in physics in 1978, Schroeder worked in the IT industry for over three decades and built a total of three successful medium sized enterprises. He adds, "A big part of Swyx’s current market leading position is due to the fact that we have expanded our European reseller network to more than 1,000 authorised partners. What’s more, we have implemented our Microsoft-based communications solution SwyxWare against many major competitors in Germany and Western Europe"

From long-time board member to CEO

Dr. Ralf Ebbinghaus looks back on his 14-year tenure on the Swyx Board. "I thank Wolfgang Schroeder, not only for the years side by side, in which we have established Swyx as a market leader but also look forward to my new role and the opportunity to continue this success story into the future," says Ebbinghaus. "We have the ideal portfolio to meet both the future software and hardware demands of the market.” As well as being CEO, he will continue to be primarily responsible for sales, marketing and service.
