2018 was an exciting year for Lang, as not only did the company celebrate its 40th anniversary, it also made key structural changes at management level. On 1 July Peter Mathia was appointed by the supervisory committee to the management board of the company. He shares this responsibility with chair Tobias Lang, thus doubling its member count.
Mathia joined the company in 2006 after successfully completing his master’s degree. Following his first experiences in the LED specialist field he quickly became Lang’s lead expert in projectors. During his time as product manager projectors and head of service he decided, on behalf of the company, on the most successful 20,000 ANSI-Lumen projector in the history of the AV trade. Mathia is a pioneer in laser phosphor technology and predicted its success many years ago. Since 2009 he has been actively involved in shaping the corporate strategy as part of the management team and has held a large number of personnel responsibilities in the company.
“Peter Mathia embodies the qualities of team spirit, family and competency. With his broad market knowledge and professional experience Peter has the tools to set the right course for our enterprise. I am looking forward to leading our company with him,” said Tobias Lang, who has chaired the board since 2008.
Both Tobias Lang and Mathia are looking forward to ISE in Amsterdam. “We are excited to showcase new technologies and varied application possibilities. As in previous years our booth serves as a platform for the whole Lang group. Next to the team of Lang AG in Lindlar, the teams of Nicola Votta of Lang Baranday AG in Zurich and of Ian Woodall of Lang UK in London are going to represent the Lang group in Amsterdam.”
