When Jürgen Ries first joined ASYS Group, he brought with him a valuable lesson from his previous role at Siemens. He explains that he had been working at Siemens’ digital factory, which was famous for its slogan, ‘If you stop improving, then you stop being good’.

“After I left Siemens, that became the main theme I used in my work,” Jürgen tells The CEO Magazine. “It’s always about improvement in the way you work and how you educate yourself. And it’s something that has always driven me.”

After 12 years with Siemens, Jürgen moved on to Germany-based technology company ASYS Group, focusing on Key Account Management. The company manufactures a range of equipment for the solar, electronics and life science industries, including automatic label applicators and printing platforms.

While in Germany, Jürgen saw an opportunity to expand the company’s base in China. He would later take up the role of Managing Director of its Chinese division in 2011.
