Automation Technology gets new managing director

Daniel Seiler moves from camera manufacturer IDS to AT

30.03.2022 - The co-founder of camera manufacturer Automation Technology, Michael Wandelt, handed over his duties as CEO to Daniel Seiler, the former CEO of IDS, on March 1, 2022. Among other things, he plans to expand the US business.

Daniel Seiler, 43, will lead the company as CEO together with CTO and founder Dr. André Kasper. He thus takes over the operational responsibilities of the previous CEO and founder Michael Wandelt.

Seiler studied electrical engineering in Darmstadt, specializing in communications engineering, and later completed an Executive MBA in Frankfurt while working. He has been working in the machine vision industry for many years: starting as an applications engineer at IDS Imaging Development Systems in Obersulm in 2005, Seiler led the US site in Boston to success within four years at the same company.

He then returned to the company's headquarters to take over as CEO. This was followed by two years as CEO at the laser technology startup Cycle, during which he already supported AT as a member of the advisory board.

Expansion into the USA planned

For AT founder Michael Wandelt, it was therefore an obvious choice to entrust him with the succession: "Daniel Seiler is the perfect candidate to take over my previous position at AT. He has learned machine vision from scratch and has already successfully managed a medium-sized company in the image processing sector as Managing Director. In addition, through his business development in the US, he brings exactly the expertise that we need for our expansion plans. Daniel Seiler is therefore already very experienced in all the areas that we want to expand at AT, and his personality also makes him an ideal fit for our strong team," says Michael Wandelt, who will take over responsibility for infrared product management in the company with immediate effect.

Portfolio and headcount to grow

AT is to receive reinforcement in nearly each department, in order to be able to support the development of the Portfolio with sufficient resources. Furthermore, the launch of the new 3D camera series C6 is planned for the summer.
