Freiburg, March 9, 2023 – OneQrew expands its management team with the addition of Kai Ingo Seidel, who assumes the role of Executive Director of Corporate Development as of February 1, 2023.

In addition, Seidel will identify future growth potential and take executive responsibility for acquisitions and mergers.
Seidel brings decades of professional experience in the M&A environment. Most recently, he was Head of Strategy & Corporate Development for MEDIFOX DAN Holding, where he oversaw the successful sale of the company to its US competitor ResMed. In addition, he held various management positions within the individual companies of the group. Prior to that, Seidel held senior positions at the M&A investment bank Lincoln International, among others. He began his career in M&A advisory and spent more than 15 years in various roles with DC Advisory and its predecessor firm.
“We have an ambitious goal at OneQrew: to become the industry leader for craft software in Europe. As an M&A expert, Seidel is exactly the right person to get us on this path. In addition to initiating deals, he has experience with the successful integration of new group companies. Through his work at MEDIFOX DAN, he is familiar with highly specialized industry software. We will benefit from his years of expertise in the future expansion of our group, and I am very much looking forward to working with him,” said Dominik Hartmann, CEO of OneQrew.
“The new challenge at OneCrew is extremely appealing to me. I see great potential in the digital transformation of the skilled trades, as many businesses are just starting in this area. As a leading provider in the field, we want to enable this transformation. To do this, however, we have to grow first, and I’m looking forward to supporting Dominik and the Group in this.
