As Chairman of the Board of Directors, Simon Ackermann is responsible for the Habegger Group's successes since 2010, and also took over the operational management of the company from 2015 onwards. Ackermann now assigns this to his deputy, in order to dedicate himself as co-founder of the umbrella company "Live Matters", strategic projects and development projects.

Together with the management, we form a management team, and in this we have set ourselves high targets. We want to strengthen and expand the position of our company in the market. The consistent focus of all activities on the ever-changing needs of our customers is of paramount importance.”

I am increasingly concerned with strategic issues and am responsible for the further development of our holding company "Live Matters". In addition, I would like to dedicate myself more intensively to the personal support of our customers and their projects.“
