The surprise in this announcement concerning the management team of Paddle-ata isn’t that Alexander Zacke has stepped down but that the company made the effort to include him in the transition to a new leadership. Auctionata Paddle 8 just released this statement:
Auctionata co-founders Alexander Zacke, most recently Chief Marketplace Officer, and Susanne Zacke, most recently Chief Sales Officer (CSO), are transferring their managerial responsibilities to the new management team of Auctionata | Paddle8.
The move was mutually agreed after the new management team led by Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Thomas Hesse and Chief Financial Officer (CFO) Lucas Hülsmann have assumed responsibility for the company. Alexander and Susanne Zacke will hand over their roles until the end of the year and will remain associated with Auctionata | Paddle8 in an advisory role. They will then work exclusively on the company’s behalf in a product sourcing capacity.
