Gerhard Steininger joins the sales team at risk analysis specialist asvin.

No stone is currently left unturned in the industry. New services and products from US BigTechs and the aggressive market entry behaviour of Asian suppliers are causing threatening upheavals for local OEMs and the entire supplier industry. “We are drastically easing the transformation burden on European companies by supporting them with risk analysis and cyber resilience,” says Steininger, setting out the sales strategy at asvin.

The sales routinier plans to position asvin as a strategic partner for the industry. Without cybersecurity, he appeals, every business model is volatile because it is vulnerable. Every year, companies currently lose around 206 billion euros due to cyber attacks. The money could be better invested elsewhere.

Before joining asvin, Steininger held several management positions. Most recently as Founding Partner at IT consultant itemis, he was responsible for electrical and electronic systems development for autonomous vehicles as Director EE Automotive at Dassault Systemes and Senior Manager for the automotive and manufacturing industry segments at Deloitte Stuttgart.

Steininger holds a Master’s degree in Physics from Ludwig-Maximilians-University Munich and a Master’s degree in Solar Energy from Ben-Gurion University of the Negev.

asvin CEO Mirko Ross welcomes Gerhard Steininger to the team with these words: “We are delighted that Gerhard is joining the management team at asvin with his expertise in strategic business development and sales. In particular, his experience and skills in the implementation of cyber security management systems at global industrial companies will enable asvin to expand the added value for industrial customers.”

In his private life, Gerhard Steininger, married, two children, is a member of the German Physical Society and the non-profit organisation Gesellschaft zur Förderung des Forschungstransfers e.V. (GFFT), of which he was a board member from 2006 to 2018. According to Steininger, innovation research guarantees growth and value creation.
