Meyvisch joined EMG as new technology officer in 2011 and became chief technology officer in 2015. During his tenure Meyvisch initiated and participated in a large number of strategic projects, the biggest of all being to guide the Group through the transition from legacy technology towards 2020 and IP-based technology.
