Team strengthening with a new CTO

SimpaTec is extremely pleased to announce a further strengthening of the team with Carlos Ribeiro Simoēs in his capacity of Chief Technology Officer. Mr. Ribeiro is responsible for the business areas Simulation & Software Development as well as for material and production related activities within the Engineering Team.

Raised in Luxembourg, Mr. Ribeiro studied aerospace engineering at the RWTH Aachen University. He started his professional career in 2005 at Future Engineer, today Sogeti, in Hamburg as a designer. In 2007 he already took responsibility for the verification and validation of aerospace components, later on as technical director. In 2009 he was given the task of establishing a new department ANST "Analytical and Numerical Simulation and Testing" as Business Group Manager. Under his leadership the team grew from 15 to almost 100 engineers, diversified the portfolio, gained new customers and ensured continuous growth. As of 2015 , Mr Ribeiro took over new responsibilities at Sogeti in various management positions. During all this time, his affinity and enthusiasm for additive manufacturing increased. A passion that he had been cultivating since his student days and that he continued to pursue.

"'Learn every day to fall in love with what you do by understanding why you do it ...' is one of my most important principles of action," says Carlos Ribeiro Simoēs.  A point that always connected him with Cristoph Hinse, General Manager of SimpaTec. In March 2019, more precisely at SimpaTec's 15th anniversary party, he learned about, understood and loved the 'why' of SimpaTec. In SimpaTec he found a company - open to his passion for breaking new grounds in a modern and co-determined corporate culture; - open to constantly taking on new challenges; - open to actively questioning decisions and entrepreneurial actions, adapting them in a way that is relevant to success and thus realizing corporate goals in a team-oriented and methodical manner.

"We very warmly welcome Carlos Ribeiro Simoēs to the team. We are convinced of the success of our joint ‚Golden-Circle-Mission’ and are more than ready to take our business activities to a new, modern, contemporary level", says Cristoph Hinse. "It will be a pleasure for us to jointly and consciously break our and our customers' boundaries with courage and trust! Break your limits!"
