In addition, to accompany the expansion into Germany, Shippeo has announced the opening of its Düsseldorf office, where Thomas will be based out of, and is currently recruiting for multiple positions.

We are honored to welcome Thomas as Director Central Europe, to help us accelerate our efforts in a market he has extensive knowledge of, and is already very well connected to. His skills and accomplishments speak for themselves; we have no doubt his contributions will be key to Shippeo's ambitious growth targets."
"I am very excited about this new challenge at Shippeo, and helping us solidify our positioning in Germany and Central Europe," says Thomas Spieker.
