abl recruits senior expertise with new COO Herbert Bockers

Nuremberg, September 27, 2021 - With its latest personnel addition, abl social federation GmbH (abl) is taking a firm stand for strong executives whose course is geared towards growth. With Herbert Bockers as its new COO, the up-and-coming Nuremberg-based company is gaining valuable expertise for its future strategic direction.

Strong reinforcement for the management team of abl

As a full-managed service provider, abl specializes in the provision of highly secure, high-performance WLAN infrastructures. The company also focuses on data analysis concepts and monetization models using the award-winning Omni-Channel-Management-Platform (OCMP). With Herbert Bockers, the former start-up has now been able to win over one of the most distinguished figures in the German system house landscape. As the former COO of an internationally operating IT Service Provider, Herbert Bockers has focused on modernizing business system processes, adapting existing shared services and the digital transformation of the various company segments in recent years. "I have known Herbert for years and, in addition to his enormous amount of experience, I particularly appreciate his hands-on mentality, assertiveness, and personality," explains Benjamin Akinci, CEO and Founder of abl.

Heading for future growth

As a service director and board member of a leading global system house, the new COO brings considerable industry experience that will strengthen abl in both national and international markets. "I decided on my new position as COO of a young, outstanding start-up primarily because of the history of the company and the people with whom I will be working, in addition to the diverse growth opportunities that are available here," says Bockers, explaining the move, which may come as a surprise to the industry. "With Herbert on our side, we want to prove that the business we already operate successfully in Germany can be scaled to other continents as well," Akinci explains the significance of the new personnel for his company. This clearly defines his role as a key player in taking abl to the next level and building a globally scaling organization. Hanna Metzger, who will hand over the baton to the new COO, will remain an important part of abl's leadership and will make her competencies available as Chief Administrative Officer (CAO).
