ESG – a leading technology and innovation partner for complex and safety-relevant electronic and IT systems – is strengthening its position as a strategic partner for the global automobile industry for the mobility of tomorrow. ESG is one of the leading service providers at the interface between electrics/electronics and software/IT. ESG MOBILTY, active in the automotive industry, began on January 1st as a brand of ESG.

With his 20 years of experience in the industry and his extensive network of contacts, Jörg Ohlsen will continue the work of Wolfgang Sczygiol. Jörg Ohlsen recently served as CEO of EDAG and was responsible for shaping their successful development.

“We are grateful that Wolfgang Sczygiol returned to ESG and assumed temporary responsibility for the MOBILITY sector. With all of his experience and expertise and his clear focus on the central issues of the future, Wolfgang Sczygiol has made a key contribution to the development of ESG MOBILITY. We are delighted that Wolfgang Sczygiol will continue to support the work of ESG MOBILITY even after October”, stated Alexander Schemann, chairman of the supervisory board at ESG. “At the same time, we are certain that, with Jörg Ohlsen, we have found the ideal leader to further build upon the successful development of ESG MOBILITY as a leading international innovation and technology partner to the automotive industry in the field of E/E and IT”, continued Schemann.

“I look forward to the exciting challenges and the many perspectives to be found within such an innovative and powerful company. I have known Wolfgang Sczygiol for several years and we are very appreciative of one another’s talents. We have a shared understanding of the change taking place in our industry. As such, I can begin my work seamlessly and continue along the sustainable path of success, whilst also contributing my own ideas and leaving my own mark”, explained Jörg Ohlsen.
