Takeover of perdata successfully completed on 1 March 2012
The management board of perdata, currently comprised of Dr. Percy Dahm and Thomas Nautsch, will grow by one to now include Matthias Moeller, Managing Director of arvato systems Technologies GmbH, who will also become chairman of the board at perdata.
Dr. Percy Dahm and Thomas Nautsch are excited about the positive development and much stronger business prospects for perdata with this move. “The specific expertise of the two companies complements each other perfectly, with the expanded service portfolio opening up significant potential for further growth. The move has generally been extremely well received by our customers.”

“We are excited about the prospect of being able to use the combined expertise of arvato Systems and perdata for the benefit of our customers. This will allow us to become one of the most powerful and innovative IT service providers for the public utilities sector in the German-speaking market,” says Matthias Moeller. “For me personally, the close cooperation and partnership with Stadtwerke Leipzig, the LVV Group, and our other customers, including TenneT TSO, is tremendously important.”
