"The entire infoteam family is mourning the loss of its company founder Dr. Wolfgang Brendel. Our deepest sympathy goes to his family. With Dr. Wolfgang Brendel we are losing a unique person and a great entrepreneurial personality. His entrepreneurial vision, expertise and humanity were and are the foundation of the infoteam Software Group," says Joachim Strobel, CEO of infoteam Software AG.
Together with his wife Petra and two other courageous pioneers, Dr. Wolfgang Brendel founded, built and significantly influenced infoteam in 1983. For many decades he helped shape infoteam at the top and from 2010 to 2020 he was on the supervisory board to oversee the company’s fortunes. Together with his companions from the first hours, days, months, years and decades, he created what has shaped infoteam from the very beginning to the present day: a company whose goal is more than just economic success. A company that unites people and creates a positive environment in which they can grow together both professionally and privately. With Dr. Wolfgang Brendel, infoteam has become an institution in software development. More than 300 employees in four countries develop software that enables safe railway technology worldwide, saves lives in medical devices, networks modern industrial plants and creates artificial intelligence systems.
Dr. Wolfgang Brendel lived the drive to shape and improve the future together, both at infoteam and in his private life. Together with his wife Petra Brendel, he enjoyed travelling, getting to know countries, people and cultures and was committed to giving the weak a foothold and future and building a strong social community. For him, looking at the world was as much a matter of the heart as the profession of loyalty to his home in Bubenreuth.
"It is with great respect that we bow to Dr. Wolfgang Brendel as a great personality, to his authenticity and his ability to think new things and consistently implement his own ideas and values in reality. We will continue his life’s work in the form of the infoteam Software Group in his spirit and in dignified memory," says Joachim Strobel.
