BTD International Consulting AG launch
BTD International Consulting AG primarily benefits in this respect from the experience gained in the construction and operation of the Munich Allianz Arena.
A main portfolio focus is thus all consultancy services, in conception, implementation and the ongoing operation of event arenas. Here, the Group s independence from combines and external investors is an important guarantee for the optimum selection of suppliers and long-term investment protection.
The appointment of the former vice-president of SKIDATA, Johannes Lippert, as CEO could be secured. "We consider ourselves lucky at BTD to have enlisted Mr Lippert as one of the world s most experienced consultants in stadium processes and technology", stated the Managing Director of BTD Group, Stefan Leibhard.
Johannes Lippert describes the novel opportunities as follows: "Against a backdrop of concrete requests and demands from international quarters, establishing the company was a natural step. Sought-after solutions from major events such as the UEFA European Championship, the forthcoming Olympics, FIFA World Championships or simply the necessary upgrades of existing arenas figure amongst our core competencies."
