The brains behind Thelsys

Dr. Martin Spieck
Managing partner ... see the CV

Martin "Seck" Spieck was almost born on an airfield and had his first solo flight at the age of 16. Not surprisingly, aviation has also had a strong influence on his professional career.

Besides the classical subjects of aviation and aircraft design, he focused his professional interest on the possibilities to improve the technical collaboration across disciplinary and organisational boundaries. Founding Thelsys can be considered a logical consequence of his more than 15 years of systematic studies to make a difference in research and innovation, but he insists that this is by no means the finish line: "After all, I learn something new every day!"

Joachim "Joe" Szodruch devoted his long career to aviation research. As an executive of Airbus, Member of the Board of DLR, the German Aerospace Center, or now as partner of Thelsys, his ambition has always been to make today's ideas tomorrow's reality.

In his private life, however, he loves the sea. When sailing, as in research, he knows when he can release the line, and when to get it close, to have a fast and safe cruise even when conditions are getting rough.
