This powerful line-up makes sure that SEMA is ideally equipped for future challenges!

The year 2020 went down in the history books as a record year for the SEMA group with numerous, trend-setting changes. Since 2019 there has been a new shareholder structure at SEMA - with VIA equity and LEA partners in the background as well as managing partner Alexander Neuss as CEO, the SEMA group of companies received fresh impetus. “Due to the pandemic, the course of the year so far has been unfamiliar to all of us and a lot has changed,” says Neuss. “Nevertheless, a lot of positive things have happened at SEMA - the new shareholder structure has brought even more dynamism to the company. What's more, the financially strong shareholder base will also enable the takeover and integration of partner companies in succession scenarios, as was the case with the WGsystem company in June 2020.In order to prepare SEMA for the challenges of tomorrow, the shareholders have opted for a larger management team. "With the employment of the three top managers in the fields of Finance & IT, Sales & Marketing, and Innovation & Software Engineering, we have provided the appropriate stimuli and thus charted the course for SEMA's future," Alexander Neuss adds.
