The German network infrastructure supplier LANCOM Systems has appointed Michael Müller as Vice President, Wi-Fi and Switches. The 47-year-old is responsible for the product lines in the area of wireless and wired networks: Wi-Fi access points, WLAN controllers, hotspot solutions, and LAN switches. He comes from network specialist D-Link, where he headed the product management for Central Europe.
With an MBA and more than 20 years of experience in product management in the IT industry, he has held a number of leadership positions. Most recently, he was at D-Link as Head of Product Management for Central Europe. Previous positions were at Dell and Hewlett Packard/Compaq.
In his new role, Michael Müller takes over the responsibility for the product and market strategy of the LANCOM Wi-Fi and Switch product lines and will oversee the maintenance, development and lifecycle management of the LAN and Wi-Fi portfolios. He reports to Christian Schallenberg, CTO and member of the extended Management Board at LANCOM.
“With Michael Müller, we are gaining a proven network expert and experienced manager for the further development of our LAN and Wi-Fi portfolio,” says Christian Schallenberg. “We look forward to working with him on key future topics such as Wi-Fi 6 and further expanding our product lines toward enterprise solutions.”
He succeeds Jan Buis, who has been responsible for the Wi-Fi and Switch portfolio for the last year and a half. As Vice President of Business Development, Jan Buis will focus on further expanding the global LANCOM business within the Rohde & Schwarz corporate group, advising international analysts and providing strategic leadership to OEM customers.
Michael Müller enjoys spending his spare time cycling and hill walking, and he enjoys drinking a good wine with his family and friends.
