DE-CIX has named former payments specialist Sebastian Seifert as its new chief financial officer.

Seifert joins from Reflex & Co, which manufactures and sells uncoated papers for graphic applications, such as business, text and cover, and transparent papers, as well as covering materials, where he was CFO for almost two years. Prior to this, he served as CFO of IT service management company Seven Principles, where he worked for almost a decade.

Seifert will join the DE-CIX group management board where he will work alongside CEO Harald A. Summa and COO Ivo Ivanov.

DE-CIX, which operates 15 internet exchanges across the globe, announced in October that all national and international DE-CIX activities, companies, and investments would be consolidated under the one roof of the DE-CIX Group AG.

“We are pleased to have been able to attract such an experienced financial expert as Sebastian Seifert to become board member finance. With the establishment of the DE-CIX Group AG, we have just recently laid the structural and legal foundations for a new phase of company growth. Sebastian Seifert is therefore an ideal fit for the DE-CIX growth strategy and for our national and international ambitions and goals,” says Felix Höger, Chair of the DE-CIX Group AG Supervisory Board.
