FRANKFURT AM MAIN, 25-2-2015 — /EuropaWire/ — iQuest Group announces that its Advisory Board is becoming a supervisory Board with executive power. In this context, founder and CEO, Cornelius Brody is taking on a new role as the Chairman of the Supervisory Board entrusting Jürgen Samuel as the sole CEO, effective from 1 January 2015.
Octav Chicinas will also join the Supervisory Board, leaving his CTO responsibilities to the other members of the iQuest Group executive team.

Having Jürgen take over the CEO role ensures leadership continuity and is a warrant for success in this new phase.
