Christian Bedel is an extremely competent, experienced manager and recognized successor who can take over the business seamlessly. I am sure that he will continue to shape the success story of MRM,“ says Schmutter.

Christian Bedel has been with MRM since its founding in 2017 and previously worked for Ingram Micro, Haufe Lexware and Microsoft. “I consider it a privilege to be able to take this next logical step in my career with MRM. The distribution business with used software is so well received that we have been able to win over 4,700 resellers as customers in recent years. On this basis and with our passionate team, I would like to continue to help MRM Distribution achieve exponential growth. I am also very pleased that we will not lose Ernesto even for the time after his departure – he will continue to be available to us as an external consultant on strategic growth topics with his expertise,“ says Bedel.
