Volketswil, Switzerland – 13.02.2020
Dr. Gery Colombo has handed over his role as CEO of Hocoma as well as a member of the board of Hocoma AG. As co-founder of Hocoma and the inventor of the Lokomat and the Erigo, Gery was leading the growth of the company from start-up to what it is today: the globally leading rehab-robotics company within the DIH Group. Gery has been instrumental in establishing the business and culture within Hocoma and he supported with passion the integration and transition since the merger with DIH and Motek in 2016. We are discussing how Gery will continue his support and guidance as advisor for Technology and Innovation which we plan to announce during the Hocoma 20 year anniversary celebration in May.
Dr. Peter Hostettler, co-founder of Hocoma, also handed over his position as a Chairman of the Board of Directors of Hocoma AG and subsidiaries. With his dedication and commitment, Peter was, like Gery, a valued member of the executive team and also instrumental over the transitional period. The finance team and the whole DIH organization are thankful for his consistent financial leadership support over these past years.
Last but not least, Matthias Joerg, the 3rd co-founder of Hocoma, will continue as a passionate Senior Expert in our technology development team.
DIH and Hocoma are deeply grateful to both Gery and Peter for everything they have done in developing the company and their active and passionate leadership. They leave with best wishes for their future endeavors and all employees and management are fully committed to continuing their legacy and their passion for the business and industry as a whole.
