Native Instruments co-founder and CEO Daniel Haver and CIO/President Mate Galic are stepping away from their current roles at the company. Constantin Koehncke is moving from Global Marketing Director and head of the Los Angeles office into the role of CEO. Robert Linke will take over as Chief Product Officer and President. Linke has been Director of Products for Instruments & Sound since 2015. Haver and Galic will continue to serve in advisory roles as the company transitions to the new team.
Daniel Haver, Co-Founder and CEO says:
Mate and I believe now is the right time to hand over the company to a new generation of leaders. Native Instruments today is in a very strong place and it's on this foundation that Constantin and Robert will bring fresh energy, continuing to deliver exceptional products. Their many years of leadership in Marketing and Products and countless successful contributions made them the perfect choice to lead Native Instruments into the future.
It's been a privilege for us to lead Native Instruments for over 20 years and we're immensely proud of what we have achieved as a company, as well as personally. Native Instruments will always be home to Mate and I, and we're excited to support Constantin and Robert in writing the next successful chapter.
