At the turn of the year, Thomas Tomakidi (56) has taken over as Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Huf Hülsbeck & Fürst GmbH & Co. KG in Velbert. He succeeds Ulrich Hülsbeck (70), who is going to chair the Supervisory Board.

In his long-term work as CEO Hülsbeck established the expansion of the automotive supplier currently operating 24 companies around the world. It is up to his merits having enlarged the product portfolio for car access, security and immobilization systems by mechatronic, electronic and telematics systems. For many years Hülsbeck also engaged in associations in Germany. He initiated the foundation of the industry cluster „Die Schlüsselregion e.V.“ (The Key Region) which is targeting at increasing the attractiveness of the companies in the area Velbert/Heiligenhaus as suppliers of locking and security systems and as employers. This also includes the foundation of the Campus Heiligenhaus of University Bochum.

The graduated engineer has been responsible for product development, quality, purchasing and sales as well as the set-up of subsidiaries during the past years. With the change in top management Huf also restructured its organization. Three of the six new business units as well as central departments e.g. purchasing, sales, quality, innovations and product development report to Tomakidi. Further members of the management are Johann Palluch and Dr. Florian Hesse. Palluch who has worked for Huf for more than 17 years is responsible for global Operations of the 25 production locations. Dr. Hesse, who joined Huf three years ago, looks after two business units and departments such as finance, IT and personnel. „By handing over responsibilities to experienced colleagues in the management we emphasis on continuity and progressive realignment“, says Ulrich Hülsbeck.

In 2017 Huf Group achieved a turnover of about 1,4 billion Euros employing around 8000 people.

Make football YOUR game with the Futboard app.

Make football YOUR game with the Futboard app.

Get privileged access to the app at our crowdfunding camapign & get organized!

Futboard is the app that boosts the football passion outside the big stadiums and that will make life easier for all amateur football players and organizers around the globe.

Berlin, 1. Sept 2014 – Futboard is an organizational app that will be available around the globe and that will allow all amateur football players to track, share and organize their football life – from goals scored to actual-time spent on the field, from weekly games to all-time wins, from interaction between teammates to easy connecting to and organizing a team or league.

EVERY player counts at Futboard.

The team of Futboard believes that every player counts in football and that every game has a story worth telling and sharing no matter if they are playing in Maracaná or just having fun on the local football field. The fundamental idea behind futboard is to bring the beautiful game back to all players.

At Futboard we have come to realize how amateur football is missing efficient tools for making it more manageable and easier to get organized. „Players have difficulties keeping track of their achievements on the field; teams, clubs and coaches spend a huge amount of time trying to gather all relevant information to organize games, tournaments and team members. Questions like „Who will play at next Saturday“s match? Who will drive there? Who will take care of the jerseys? Who has paid the club fee?“ are just examples of the daily organizational struggle football teams face“, says Jördis Deutschmann, co-founder of Futboard. „That“s why we decided to create Futboard: To make life easier for everybody involved in amateur football.“

Football life is usually based in three different „hierarchical“ levels – the individual player, teams & leagues. For all three levels specialized features will be available on the Futboard app. All three levels are independently usable or smartly connected with one another. Besides the three categories mentioned above, futboard also offers features for either local or global brands & sponsors that will increase their visibility and relevance to players and teams. At the moment functionalities for individual players are being programmed also putting a great amount of attention to design & UI/UX to make it an app-ealing tool.

Football happens when YOU play.

„One thing we know for sure at Futboard: We want to make the app about what matters most to users – not investors. With the crowd funding campaign ( LINK (http://www.igg.me/at/futboard) ) that successfully started on Indiegogo we want to make every single player out there a part of this project,“ emphasizes Diego Berjon, co-founder of Futboard. „We want to make the app as great as every player“s passion for the game.“

Futboard, the app made for every football player in the world.

Support the crowdfunding and get early access to Futboard: Your Football Life in One App.

There are more than 255 million amateur players in the world waiting for their stories to be told. The Futboard app is an excellent org tool to track, share and organize the lives of amateur football players, teams and leagues.

Berlin, August 22, 2014 – Futboard is a mobile app that will allow amateur players to track, share and organize all data with regards to their football life – from goals scored to actual-time spend on the field, from weekly games to all-time wins, from interaction between teammates to easy connecting to and organizing a team or league.

The Futboard app will make life easier and more efficient for everybody involved in amateur football – players, teams, leagues, coaches. Today there are not really efficient tools available to get organized.

„I always thought that football is simply about a few players and a ball; which proofs right for playing in the neighborhood.“ Says Jördis Deutschmann, CEO of Futboard. „Once I started playing in a local club, I realized I spend as much time answering phone calls, updating excel tables and commenting in a blog about training sessions as I spend on the field. This was annoying,“ she admits. „Once my friend Diego Berjon called me to ask for help on an amateur statistics tool, I answered, that this can only be a starting point: what amateur football really needs is an organizing tool.“

Thus, Futboard was born.

Football life is usually based in three different „hierarchical“ levels – the individual player, teams & leagues – and for all three levels Futboard offers specialized features to track and organize the game of football. At the same time these three levels are independently usable and smartly connected with one another.

We want to make football about YOU!

The situation of the more than 255 million amateur players throughout the world is quite anonymous. They are confined inside their neighborhoods, playing in their local leagues and tournaments, lacking all kinds of exposure and interest from media, brands and sponsors.

Futboard will bring relevance and visibility to every game and it will tell the stories behind. The name Futboard actually comes from the Spanish word „futbol“ and the English word „storyboard“.

„One thing we know for sure at Futboard: We want to make the app about what matters most to users – not investors. With the crowdfunding campaign (http://www.igg.me/at/futboard) that started this week successfully on Indiegogo we want to make every single player out there a part of this project,“ emphasizes Diego Berjon, co-founder of Futboard. „We want to make the app as great as every player“s passion for the game.“
