Gurobi Optimization, Inc. has announced the opening of their Gurobi GmbH subsidiary, located in Bad Homburg, Germany, and serving Germany, Austria and Switzerland.
"Gurobi has enjoyed very strong growth in the last year, particularly in the German speaking parts of Europe. As a result of this growth and because of a desire to increase our international footprint, we have decided to open a subsidiary”, said Robert Bixby, Gurobi CEO. “As we add these new resources in Europe, rest assured that we'll continue to focus on the things that have made us successful: our commitment to offering the best optimizer available, transparent pricing, flexible licensing, and easy-to-reach support from optimization experts.”
Dirk Zechiel, Dipl.-Informatiker, RWTH Aachen, will serve as Managing Director of Gurobi GmbH. After obtaining his degree in 1998, Mr. Zechiel spent a total of ten years at ILOG Germany, the first seven years as an Account manager, after which he was promoted to the position of managing all of ILOG’s business in the DACH region. During his time at ILOG, Mr. Zechiel was one of their top-performing sales people, selling CPLEX® and JRules™. He left ILOG in 2008 to join Red Hat, where he was brought in to manage strategic accounts, and had been employed for over four years before accepting our offer to take over the management of Gurobi’s business in the DACH region.
Even as more and more companies around the world choose Gurobi as their preferred optimizer, the goals at Gurobi remain the same, including providing the best sales and technical support in the industry. While Gurobi GmbH will be starting off with a focus on sales, in the very near term it is expected additional expert, local support resources will be added, thus extending the reach of what is already the finest support team in the industry.
